It’s the week of St. Patrick’s Day and the luck of the Irish is bringing us a nice mix of bluebird “beach days” and light snowfall days. It feels like full-on spring up in the mountains. Not only is the weather mixing sun and snow in typical spring style, but the spring vibe is rockin’ everywhere you go. We’ve got great food and beer, lively events, and awesome adventure – a flawless formula for an incredible Spring Break.
Today will one of those amazing bluebird days we were talking about. It’s the kind of day you’ll want to pull up a lounge chair, grab a beer mid-mountain, and soak in the warm mountain sun in between every few laps. But get it while you can, because later in the week, temps will start to drop and the next storm will blow in.
Later this week, temperatures will drop and we will likely see our next significant snowfall on Thursday night. We hope to see as much as 17 inches between Thursday and Sunday.
Where to Ride:
Patrol just gave us the inside scoop. The north facing runs are holding the best snow and are sure to provide quality skiing all day long. They say to head to trails off Sunnyside lift to get your early morning groomers, or the trees near Sterling Way and Narrow Gauge to get your tree skiing.
With the temperatures being a little warmer and the sun hitting the mountain, you can find really fun recycled powder up in the Parsenn Bowl Territory.
All seven territories are open and ready to ride this spring! Everything should be good to go throughout the next seven days.
It wouldn’t be a St. Patrick’s Day Celebration without a full Irish band and green beer! The Village hosts their annual St. Patrick’s Day Celebration this Saturday, March 14, complete with both. Visit the center of the Village for live music, beads, beer, outdoor games, and a Village pub crawl! Don’t miss out!
