As we say farewell to February, we’re giving March a warm welcome with one to two feet of snow predicted to fall in the first week! This weekend, we’re looking forward to warmer weather with temps in the high 20’s, and plenty of snowfall.
March is said to come in like a lion, and so far, the month is living up to the hype! Five to eight inches of snow are predicted for Friday, then another eight inches are predicted for Saturday into Sunday. If we’re lucky though, this storm system will come in stronger than expected. That means it’s time for you to pick out your most trusted snow ritual and get to work. We could see up to 2 feet by the end of the weekend!
Spring keeps reminding us it’s right around the corner. Even with all the snow we’re expecting, the weather will have you feeling nice and warm! Temps will be in the high 20’s, with a bit cooler weather on Sunday. Sunday will feature a high of 18 degrees, but we wouldn’t be surprised if things stay a bit hotter.
With snow in the forecast, we know what you’re thinking; steep AND deep skiing is in your future! If you’re looking for the best place to find steep and deep skiing, the obvious place to go is over to The Cirque! With a Cirque Sled Pass, you can take lap after lap of sweet, sweet powder.
But The Cirque isn’t the only place on the mountain to enjoy steep, snow-filled terrain. Check out these secret stash spots for some of the best powder day skiing on the hill:
- Trestle Trees
- Belle Fourche Trees
If you’re planning to hit the hill this weekend, we suggest packing a snorkel along with your powder skis. But most importantly, bring your party hat! Winter Park is celebrating Mardi Gras the only way we know how…with a HUGE party! Saturday, perk those ears up and enjoy the tunes of Rockin’ Jake, a traditional Louisiana band.
Bring your own style to Mardi Gras and create your own mask! Plus, make the memories last forever by capturing pictures in the Ear2Ear photo booth. And what’s Mardi Gras without gumbo? Top off your party with gumbo, and top your gumbo off with all the fixins’! However you chose to celebrate, we promise it’s better with friends. So, grab your friends and family and use those buddy passes. This is a weekend worth celebrating!
