Old Man Winter has finally loosened his grip and we have transitioned into the spring weather that keeps things relaxed and fun. We have a plethora of events happening this weekend and next to clebrate spring we aren't quite ready to let go of winter just yet. Saturday is scheduled to be a sunny, bluebird like day and there is currently snow in the forecast for Sunday making for a great one two punch that will combine springtime sun with fresh snow.

 

The plan for this weekend is to run five lifts including Wilderness which will give you access to 56 open trails, woods and glade runs. Conditions for Saturday will be soft and creamy skiing surfaces from top to bottom that will provide for a silky smooth ride. Sunday will see conditions firm up a touch as temperatures will dip below freezing.
