Mount Snow Minute 17: Miracle March
Wednesday, March 14, 2018
Mount Snow is sure living up to its name this month, as March works to unseat February for the title of the snowiest month. In the past seven days alone, we’ve received 62 inches of snow, which is over a third of our annual average snowfall for an entire season. So, if you haven’t been here yet, book your tickets, get the hotel reserved, and get up here! This is one cycle we’ll be talking about for years.
While you might say 62 inches is enough, Ullr isn’t done blessing us with his fluffy white gifts of powder just yet, as it’s still snowing with another half-a-foot predicted to fall before Friday morning, when we’ll be offering $29 lift tickets. Those discounted tickets are going to go quickly, so be sure to purchase in advance, as these will sell out, and will not be available at the ticket window.
Looking out towards the weekend, we’ve got blue skies and sun headed this way, before another storm hits midweek! Speaking of the weekend, we’re trying something new this year for St. Patrick’s Day, as the Bud Light ShamRock Fest goes bluegrass. This year we’ve got an amazing lineup of bluegrass bands from all over the country, set to get you dancing outside of Cuzzins during the day, and then partying all night long over at The Snow Barn. Tickets to the evening shows will sell out, so be sure to get them in advance. While there are some changes, the old standbys will still be there, including eggs and kegs Friday and Saturday morning and the annual Pot O' Gold scavenger hunt on Friday for an 18/19 Season Pass.
Also this weekend, we’ve got some of the top snowboarders in the sport descending on Grommet Park at Carinthia for The C.O.M.P. Carinthia's acclaimed park builders have once again constructed a one-of-a-kind, plaza-style setup that’s loaded with rails, boxes, and a whole arsenal of unique features found nowhere else but here. Athletes will need to choose their line carefully so they can go big, get technical, and flex their style to walk away with a piece of the $6500 purse. Even if you’re not competing, this is a great spectator sport, so swing on by.
That’s all for now, I’m out to sample the goods. So, grab your big boards, call in sick from work, and get out and experience some of the best conditions this mountain has ever seen.
