Count Down to Winter 2017/18

Countdown to Winter 2017/2018

We now have less than 100 days till opening day for the winter 2017/2018 season! We are excited and we know that you are excited too. In anticipation of the upcoming winter we are going to visit last winter. Last winter was incredible. We got over 35ft of snow. 35ft! That’s deep!

November started off a little slow but by the end of the month we had a healthy 24” of snow. But we still had no idea what winter had in store for us!

December was good! It snowed most days with snow fall reaching more than a foot of snow on 3 separate days. The holiday could not have been better with over 19” of snow falling. Who doesn’t love a white Christmas?

January is when winter really turned on. We got 146” of snow. That’s over 12 feet! We barely saw the sun and we loved ever minute. It was the type of month that we live for.  Just look how happy we are:

In February the snow just kept coming. It snowed for 12 days straight and we got 78” of snow in one storm alone. That’s a lot of snow to fall at once!

In March we got the best of both worlds with plenty of sunny days on the slopes and a few sleeper powder days. We got a total of 42” of snow which was capped with daily concerts at the base of the resort during Spring Grüv. It was a perfect month for powder and après.

In April we celebrated the amazing winter season with awesome events like the 21st Annual Pond Skimming Competition and the on mountain Easter egg hunt which included a golden egg with a free season pass! It was a fun season and now we are counting down the days until opening day.  See you November 17, 2017.
