Tuesday afternoon, March 31, 2015
March is heading out with a bang this fine Tuesday. As we look out to Simpson-like clouded blue skies, some sunshine is peaking through and making for wicked cushy turns on all eight peaks. We started the day with 73 groomers, and you'll still find corduroy on Moonstruck, among others. Patrol is also dropping ropes on naturals like Chutzpah and Yetiville as the snow between the trees softens. Trust us--it's a great day for skiing and boarding.
We liked last night's grooming plan so much that we're doing it all over again tonight. The snowcats will set out once the lifts close down for the day at 4 PM, leaving trails of striped goodness in their wakes. In tomorrow's glorious sunshine, we're scheduled to spin 12 lifts at 9AM, and if you've already picked up your 2015-16 New England Pass, we hope to see you for first chair (and that's no April Fool's joke).
We are in the midst of our Spring Festival celebrations! This weekend, join us for parties on parties on parties at Parrothead, including classic events like the Margarita Mix-Off, and the new-this-season Slip and Flip. The following weekend, we'll have a wild Pond-a-Palooza, the final Spring Apres Concert Series show from Vertical Horizon, and the Passholder BBQ. And after that, even more! Man, there is a lot of fun to be had in the next few weeks.
The 2015-16 New England Pass is now on sale with access to Sunday River, Loon, and Sugarloaf. Buy yours now and use it to ski the rest of this season, or reserve one with just $50 down to lock in the rates. And what's even better than that? New for next winter, you can add a M.A.X. Pass to qualifying New England Passes to get five days each at 19 additional resorts across North America.
