Weather, like life in general, doesn't always go according to plan. Ok it rarely goes according to plan. Juno fell short of early predictions, but we actually made out pretty well in the end. We originally expected nearly a foot of heavy wet snow, and while that would have been fantastic for both base building and floaty runs, what we got instead was 4-7" of dry fluff in the last 24 hours. That's actually better for us because it's the light dry stuff that's wicked fun to ski. Break out the fat sticks and claim your line.

Today, 62 trails are open and we're spinning 5 lifts from 9am-8pm. That means two things - 11 hours of shredding and no excuses not to come enjoy winter with us. Most of the new snow has been blown around, so if you're looking for the steep and deep, head into the trees and see what you can find. For all the corduroy cowboys in the audience, we groomed about 30 trails last night and you can bet on super soft turns on each of those runs. Plan on flurries until this afternoon and temperatures in the mid-teens.

The BV Parks crew has put in some overtime in the past week getting the Valley Road large park ready to go, and now all three parks are open with about 30 freestyle features. Night Riders round 2 starts tonight with the team challenge, so if you've never seen a freestyle competition, stick around during night skiing and watch these kids boost.  A word about Valley Road - due to the size and variety of rails and jumps, that park is for advanced/expert skiers and riders only. Please ski and ride to your ability level. 

Need a tune-up for your skis? Beaten your snowboard up shredding deep tree lines this month? You're in luck. For the rest of January, all individual Gold, Silver and Bronze tunes are 25% off at BV Sports. Pick one up and set yourself up for the rest of the season. Every Wendesday is College Night, where students get a discounted lift ticket with a valid ID starting at noon. This Friday is Subaru and Hyundai Owners Appreciation Day and owners of these brands will get one complimentary lift ticket and up to three more at 50% off. 

The easiest way to save on lift tickets is to buy online in advance.
