In Like a Lion and Out With Spring Events!

And so the story goes, March comes in like a lion and out like a lamb. This year, that may be truer than ever, though with a bit warmer and wetter precipitation than most have hoped. Sir Punxsutawney Phil’s prediction back in February seems to be ringing true. Blame it on the groundhog, climate change, or Queen Elsa – all I know is that we’re not too worried up here on the mountain, you know why? Because we’ve got a great base pack thanks to our amazing snow makers, sunshine to warm the soul, and soft turns to top it off! We’re rolling right into our absolute favorite time of the season, SPRING SKIING BABY. The courtyard vibes are unmatched, the bevys are cold and never hard to find, plus it’s the biggest time of year for our major events. We have favorites returning for weekends worth of fun and adventure for the whole family.
