Friday afternoon, December 19, 2014
If you didn't get out today, be prepared for extreme jealousy. Patrol dropped ropes on Lollapalooza, Rogue Angel, and Upper Vortex for peak-to-peak skiing and riding, and the snow is just plain sweet. The groomers are loosening up for the freshest feeling turns, and the trails left au naturale are that bumpy-thigh-burn kind of fun. The Parks Crew outdid themselves, concocting a 10-feature small park on the top of Dream Maker, in addition to 17 rad features on T72. You could definitely call this a fabulous Friday, and it's not even over yet. We'll be night skiing from 4:00-8:00 PM.
The snowguns are still blazing, and we're pretty excited to say that White Heat is back in action as a late opening tomorrow, and will be left untamed. Look for new grooms on the Airglow headwall and Rogue Angel, and a spinning Sundance Surface Lift. The Grand Summit Hotel is ski-in/ski-out via intermediate and advanced terrain, and the Jordan is ski-in/ski-out on an advanced Lollapalooza. As always, please only venture to terrain that suits your abilities.
Wouldn't it be great if all of your friends could join you on-hill? Get your non-snowsporters on the slopes and into Perfect Turn Ski and Snowboard School's one-day clinics from $29 through January.
We'd love to spend the holidays with you, so we're offering ski and stay packages from $139 during Christmas week. This weekend (December 20), we're having our own Festival of Lights celebration at the Peak Lodge, complete with night skiing. It also happens to be College Weekend,which means that college students can ski and snowboard for $39, AND receive "bounce back" discounts for College Week in January.
Speaking of College Week, Red Bull Frozen Rush returns to Sunday River January 8-9, 2015 with 10 of the world's best off-road drivers, 900-horsepower Pro 4 trucks, studded tires, and, well, a party or two.
