Mount Snow Minute #10: MLK Events
Wednesday, January 16, 2019
To say this last week was beautiful would definitely be an understatement! With back to back bluebird days and cool temps which kept the recent snowfall fresh, it has been such a fun week of skiing and riding.
But, it's about to get better as we see a huge storm in the forecast for this weekend. After an inch or two is expected to drop on Thursday night, we see 8-12" forecasted for both Saturday and Sunday. If this storm rolls through as it is predicted right now, we could have up to 2 FEET of fresh snow by Monday.
Along with snow, we see some cold temps for the weekend, which means having proper gear can make or break your day on the slopes. Our friends over in Mount Snow Sports can hook you up with hand warmers, neck warmers, base layers or maybe just some new and improved outer layers to keep out the elements.
In addition, the weekend will be packed with events for MLK, and it all starts on Friday with a beer pairing dinner with Trout River Brewing. Then on Sunday, we have our Torchlight Parade followed by a grand firework display.
In addition, KIND will be here throughout the weekend with a scavenger hunt to win a very special prize! KIND logo cards will be hidden around the mountain, and if you find one, bring it to the KIND tent in the Main Base Area outside of Bootworks to pick up your prize. Or, just stop by the tent to try out some delicious samples and get yourself fueled up for the slopes!
At the Snow Barn, we have back to back nights of Pink Talking Fish Saturday and Sunday. The show on Sunday will be a one of kind tribute to the Allman Brothers, so make sure to purchase your tickets online in advance before they sell out. Both nights will be $20 online, and $25 at the door if still available.
And don't forget, if you are picking up rental equipment for the weekend, the Cupola offers late night Friday sales, just ½ mile down the road from Mount Snow on Route 100. You can pick up your lift tickets, equipment rentals and other services until midnight, so you're ready to hit the slopes early Saturday morning.
Another way to make your morning even easier, is with our free shuttle service that will drop you off at the base of the slopes. Whether you park at the Cupola, Snowtree, or even if you're staying in downtown Wilmington, the Moover will transport you free of charge.

With this upcoming forecast, I'll be sure to do my snowdance, and you better be, too!
