Are you sick of the blue skies, sunshine, warmer temps, and downright great conditions? Yes? Well, maybe you should stick to spelunking, because it is a perfect day for skiing and boarding. Having had 12 feet of snow fall this season, there's more than enough snow to go around. Find your happy place with fresh stashes hidden in the trees, packed powder turns on the naturals, crisp corduroy on 93 trails, and five sick terrain parks (with a sixth, HUGE addition on the way today, we hear). And another thing we're hearing? A couple more inches of snow are ready to fall on Monday.
But back to the present: Lifts will take off at 8 AM, and we won't stop spinning all of them at 4 PM. The South Ridge Express and the Chondola will keep on rolling until 8 PM for night skiing, tubing, and twin zips. And for more adult fun, reserve your plate at the Peak Comedy Dinner, or dance all night at the Goggle to The Wild Ones. If you thought about making this a day trip (where you saved on lift tickets by buying online), but the conditions and the nightlife are just too tempting, one-night stays are available all weekend long. Call 800-543-2754.
Did you miss Red Bull Frozen Rush here in January? Catch the 900-horsepower, head-to-head racing action tomorrow, March 1 at 2 PM on NBC. It's the most insane event to happen on snow anywhere this winter.
While we're anticipating plenty more skiing in the months to come, spring is just around the corner, and in addition to a full calendar of amazing events like The Dumont Cup, March has lots of other great qualities: Longer days, a tendency to produce historic blizzards, and weekend ski and stay packages from $125.
