Snow Globe Effect

Ever wanted to know what the inside of a snow globe feels like? Not that syrupy slow-motion goop, but the fat flakes falling all around you while the sun peaks through the clouds? Been there, done that. Team Snow hit Aurora this morning for cushy corduroy and wicked soft stashes while the flurries flew, before heading to Vortex for face shots and bumps beneath the snowguns. Patrol dropped the ropes on six trails too, including Crossbow, Locke Line, Tightwire, Uppercut, Sluice, and Three Mile Trail. But speaking of snowmaking and new terrain, the crew is doing some game-changing work right this minute. The snowguns will continue to blast Vortex, Upper Monday Mourning, and Grand Rapids through the night, plus newly added Lost Princess, Cowardly Lion, and Shockwave. Excited yet? Now tack on the groomer factor, covering the mountain in cruise-worthy corduroy, and you've got yourself some TGIF. 

Temps are dropping to make that extra dry, fluffy snow that we know and love, so  we suggest layering up before hitting the slopes, and taking ample breaks at the Peak Lodge. We'll see snow squalls through the weekend, and of course, legendary snowmaking temperatures. 

If you just started planning for Valentine's day, we have the perfect solution: head to the Jordan Hotel for a romantic Valentine's Wine Dinner at Sliders. Enjoy a five-course meal with a complementary wine pairing for each course. But if a last-minute night in is more your speed, we've got you covered with our picks from the Mountain Grocer. 

Spend your vacation with us: major savings can be yours if you book your Ski & Stay for Presidents' Week ahead of time! We're offering one-night stays and we've planned a major lineup of events and activities for one and all, including live music, shows brought to you by Black Diamond Entertainment, tubing, twin ziplines, Peak Family Dinners at the Peak Lodge, and fireworks. Did we mention Kids' Night Out? And night skiing every night? Your Happy Place is waiting. All you have to do is book.

Carve on,
Team Snow
