April 19, 2014
It's here - the final long weekend of our 2013-14 season.
For today, the Barker Mountain Express and Spruce Peak Triple will turn starting at 8 a.m. to provide turns on Barker, Locke, and Spruce until 4 p.m. Lift tickets for today and tomorrow are $39 for adults and $29 for college students, teens, juniors, and seniors. To access tickets, terrain, etc., head to the Barker Lodge for all of your needs except 2014-15 season passes and rentals, for those, head to the South Ridge Lodge first.
Groomers were still out during the wee hours of this morning putting the final touches of corduroy on nearly 25 trails. Most trails will be groomed, however, while skiing and riding today, please be aware of natural obstacles and posted signage as conditions may be varied. Also, there is no easy way down from the top of either mountain (Barker or Spruce) so we recommend skiing and riding for intermediates and experts only.
Tomorrow is Easter Sunday and we're celebrating with an Easter Sunrise Service atop of Barker Mountain. Lifts load at 6:45 a.m. for 7 a.m. service. There will be no skiing down access until after the service is complete and the mountain is open at 8 a.m. Then at 9 a.m. in the South Ridge base area, kids are invited to search for eggs and hang out with Eddy the Yeti. Don't forget to bring a basket to collect eggs in! And most importantly, don't forget that there is no ski-in/ski-out access to the South Ridge base area for the Easter Egg Hunt from Barker.
Last, but certainly not least, Monday we invite you to come and take advantage of our last day of the season and ski for free. That's right, free! On Monday, April 21, we're celebrating our final day of the season and skiing and riding is free for everyone.
And we've already mentioned a'plenty that if you have a 2014-15 Season Pass you can use it now for free. If you don't have next year's pass yet, now's the time. All 2014-15 Season Passes are on sale at their lowest rates through April 30, and you have the option of paying in full and skiing for free now or putting just $50 down now then paying the balance over the summer with our Easy Pay Plan. It's a great way to lock in the lowest price on next year's pass, but the payment plan goes away and prices go up after April 30 so don't miss out.
Oh, here we go
Feel it in my soul
Really need it, need it, so go
Gotta feel it, body takes control
Really need it, need it
Can't keep up with my rhythm,
