All About The Benjamins

 

I was sitting on the deck of one of our new jumps in Valley Road last night waiting for Night Riders to begin when I turned around and saw a really spectacular sunset. Now, since our slopes face West, we literally get to ski into the sunset and witness one of these almost every night of the season. That got me thinking a little bit about where we are in the season. The sun is setting on our snowiest January in four years, we're nearly 100 percent open and we're about to enter the best and most fun part of winter. Winter Storm Juno may have only dealt us a glancing blow, but we've still gotten a foot of new snow in the last 7 days (see photo above, taken yesterday).

Speaking of snow, February and March are the snowiest months of the year for Vermont. Last season, we received 126" after February 1st and the year before that, we got 114". That's all well and good but what makes it even more enjoyable is that the bitter cold days happen less often and we get a lot more sunshine than in the first half of the season so you can really get out there and enjoy taking laps on your chair of choice. I'm excited; We've had an excellent start, and the best days are still ahead of us.

Stay Frosty,

~Mike


 

Ski Super Bowl Sunday From $38.99

The game doesn't start until 6:30pm, which we all know really means closer to 7pm when you factor in all the ceremonies and commercials. You can only watch so much pregame coverage so what are you going to do all day? Buy tickets ahead of time and burn some calories before you dig into all those wings and nachos. Prices go up as more tickets are purchased.
