How's your goggle tan coming along? Because Team Snow's are sweet, in our humblest opinions. The weather is superb, with shining sun and warmer temps, meaning the softest snow around. This morning's cords on Obsession and White Heat were crisp and carvey, while the stashes on Locke Line and in the woods were swooshy as can be. We're crediting these amazing conditions to the 12 feet of snow that's fallen this season, and to our awesome Mountain Ops team keeping it fresh as ever. And just one more hat tip to the Parks Crew for opening our massive, longest-in-the-East superpipe today!
If your legs can handle it, stick around for night skiing, tubing, and twin zips from 4-8 PM. Need a body break? Reserve your plate at the Peak Comedy Dinner, or catch a fun-filled performance from The Wild Ones at the Goggle.The groomers will get out on-hill this evening to stripe out the usual suspects, with extra TLC on Top Gun and Black Hole to prep for Monday's fresh snow! But before we get carried away with talk of new snow, remember that the lifts spin at 8 AM tomorrow for another beautiful day of skiing and boarding, and 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.
