Exciting things are happening and it's only the first day of Presidents' Week vacation: Patrol delighted us all by opening both Shock Wave and Lost Princess this morning! They're buried in fluffy powder, and word on the street is that some of the best skiing of the year can be had today across the mountain. Temps will start dropping this afternoon and will keep our wonderfully fluffy snow in fine form through tomorrow, but we highly recommend wearing lots of layers and taking ample breaks when you head out to enjoy it. The right gear makes a big difference!
If you just started planning for Valentine's Day, we have perfectly delicious solutions. Head to the Jordan Hotel tonight for a romantic Valentine's Wine Dinner at Sliders or the Couples' Peak Dinner, which has been moved to Grand Ave due to weather. If a last-minute night in is more your speed, we've got you covered with our picks from the Mountain Grocer.
Stick around for a crazy après ski scene tonight: we'll have live music from Brad Hooper from 2-5PM at the Barker Bar, live music from Cornerstone from 3-6PM at the Foggy Goggle, night skiing, snow tubing, and twin zips from 4-8PM at South Ridge, Kid's Night Out from 5-8PM in the River House ($15, reservations required; call 207.824.5080), a showing of Fade to Winter brought to you by Black Diamond Entertainment at 7PM in the Grand Summit Ballroom, live music from Scott Folsom from 7-10PM at Sliders, live music from the Adam Ezra Band as part of the Bud Light Music Series at 9PM at the Foggy Goggle, and fireworks at 8:30PM slopeside at South Ridge.
Consider tomorrow night booked as well: we'll be running night skiing, snow tubing, and twin zips from 4-8PM at South Ridge and featuring live music at 7PM Sliders from Jim Gallant. Be sure to reserve your Ski & Stay for Presidents' Week now--we're offering one-night stays and we've planned a major lineup of events and activities to keep you finding happy places all week long.
