Mount Snow Minute #9: Fresh Snow
Tuesday, January 16, 2018
First off, we’d like to take back some of the not-so-nice things we said about Mother Nature during her temperature tantrum on Friday. Mainly, because she’s making up for it right now, as we’re 6” into a predicted 7-9” storm. While she did her best to try to rain out our MLK Weekend, our snowmaking team was quick to step in and say “No Ma’am” and were able to resurface nearly 300 acres of terrain in a 36 hour period.
Now with a fresh blanket of snow falling all over the resort, we hope to be opening additional trails and terrain as soon as possible, as we set ourselves up for a weekend that’s looking to have plenty of sun and great temps. Not only that, but we’ll see fresh rebuilds over on Nitro and Mineshaft in Carinthia, as the crew works to get things back to the level you all expect from the #1 ranked park in the East.
Speaking of the weekend, we’ve got another great one filled with events here at Mount Snow, starting with one of our famous beer pairing dinners on Friday night. This time around Mike Giorgio and his crew will be pairing dishes with offerings from Harpoon Brewing, complete with our collaboration brew SapTapper. If you haven’t been to one of these dinners yet, then you’ve been missing out. But hurry and buy tickets ahead of time, as these do sell out. Then, join Harpoon at The Station Taproom on Saturday for a full tap takeover.
If live music is your thing, then The Snow Barn once again has you covered, with shows from Superdope on Friday, and West End Blend on Saturday. And of course, Bruce will be back on Saturday at Cuzzins, delivering another show that really must be seen to be believed. Words just simply cannot do justice when describing that man.
Then on Sunday, Mount Snow and Adaptive Sports at Mount Snow have teamed up for a very special day on the slopes, Kids of Courage Ski Madness. This event includes upwards of 50 children, who battle for their lives on a daily basis, joining volunteers and guests from around the country in experiencing the thrills of skiing. Utilizing specifically-trained volunteers from Adaptive Sports at Mount Snow, and more than 100 physicians, paramedics, nurses, physical therapists, and counselors, these kids forget the tubes, pumps, and needles that go along with their personal daily challenges—and learn how to ski. We’re so thankful to be able to help out with this amazing event.
Well, enough writing for now, I’m off to sample these powdery goods!
