2016-2017 Season Passes On Sale

What's Happening This Weekend

Snurfer Challenge Sunday at 4pm


Well, here we are. Unfortunately, here means the end of the ski season. We all know the end is coming from the very first day we step on the slopes, but we pretend we can ski forever anyway. With the lack of natural snowfall, this year more than ever I've grown to appreciate our mountain operations team. The snowmakers had to virtually start over twice in December due to thaws and rain. Grooming was consistently a challenge due to freezing and warming cycles. Nevertheless they persevered and really made the best of the conditions they were given. Sure, I'm guessing some of your favorite terrain remained closed all season, but what we were able to ski and ride was pretty fantastic.

However, don't take this newsletter as a final goodbye. There are still a number of fun events happening this weekend. Saturday we will hold a rail jam for the Night Riders Finals and later there will be another Paint Night with local artist Natasha Bogar. Sunday is Skier and Rider Appreciation Day, Vermont Specialty Food Day and the Snurfer Challenge. Plus we'll be spinning the Vista Quad until 6pm. Lastly, I know thinking about your season passes for next season may sound crazy. But they are currently on sale and prices increase after April 4th.

It's been a blast being your snow reporter this season. Here's to a much snowier 2016!
