A foot of new snow is piled on top of a $48 Why Not Wednesday!   Bring along any unopened Coca-Cola product and you can check out amazing conditions at a great discount.  Today features the opening of the Topridge Chair, with ungroomed conditions awaiting experts on Uncas.   Watch a video of the mountain on Tuesday during the first good dump of the season!  Please check our Winter Storm Watch forecast frequently for updates, as the storm is still underway.  Snowmakers are powering away on Open Pit, Headwaters, Village Slopes, and Lower Cloud.  We hope to open the Straight Brook Area (featuring our new summit lodge!) this weekend, stay in touch for updates.

Special Notes

The storm delivered over 11" of a perfect, light fluffy powder- a lovely treat for this early in the season, and groomers are busy blending all of it into the base.  Need a gift card?  Our cards are available in any denomination, they are rechargeable for convenient future use, and they never expire.  Today's lunch special is Irish Nachos for $8.  Or check out the mid-mountain offerings at the new Saddle Lodge!  Please note that gondola-serviced terrain is for intermediate and expert levels, beginners should head to Bear Cub Run. 

The new storm has also dressed up our Nordic Center at the Ski Bowl, open Noon-6pm today.  Trail access is included with valid lift tickets and season passes.  Get ready for our Snowshoe Race on Saturday- register in advance online, or day-of in Ski Bowl Lodge.
