March is one of our favorite times in the mountains, for a plethora of reasons. First, it always seems to surprise us with excellent snowfall and unexpected powder days. Second, it mixes in those bluebird, sunny days that we miss during our coldest months. And lastly, there’s just something about the start of spring that brings the mountains to life!
March is the time to make deep, fresh tracks after a snowstorm, lounge on a beach chair with a mid-mountain beer on a sunny day, and create memories with friends and family any day of the week. Not to mention the EVENTS! The entire rest of the season is filled with spring concerts, unique competitions, and, of course, green beer. March is the month that gives us the best of everything!
It’s starting to look like Spring out there. Today through Friday we’ll have sunny days with comfortable winter temperatures. But don’t forget that spring in the mountains means sunshine AND snowfall. Look for Friday night to bring some of the latter, up to 4 inches of it.
After the snowfall on Friday and Saturday, warm temperatures, with the chance of a few light dustings, are in the forecast for Sunday through next Tuesday. Warmer temperatures after the new snow will have you lapping great runs all day and enjoying frequent stops at places like Snoasis, the Chili Hut, or Pepperoni’s.
Where to Ride:
If you haven’t already, you need to visit the top of the mountain – The Panoramic Express, Eagle wind, or even The Cirque. On the sunny days, you won’t find a better place in the entire state to catch the view and snap a pic. On the snow days, you can catch a fluffy and fun run down any of these spots.
After talking to Patrol, they recommend the trees from Paintbrush to Parry Peek and the Hi-Lo Trees for those seeking hidden areas that still offer great snow. Or cruise Mary Jane Trail and Hobo Alley if groomers are more your style.
We are 94% open for the season. You can hit anything in any of our 7 territories and feel great about it!
Do note that Upper and Lower Hughes will be slightly impacted this weekend due to race competition.
This week offers weekly events that include live music, campfires, little rippers, and trivia knowledge. All leading up to next weekend when St. Patrick’s Day Celebrations take to the mountains. Check it all out!
