Thank goodness it's Friday- Mother Nature is predicted to sprinkle us with flurries all day, helping us get into the holiday and skiing spirit!  Our midweek skiers have been loving the soft snow and fantastic coverage.  Lower Sleighride has a few berms and rollers now, check out a little more freestyle action added to the mix.  Groomers are laying down the goods on 100% of open terrain, and snowmakers have lit up Showcase, 2B, Uncas, and Tannery while finishing Lower Sunway as well.   All of this terrain is planned to open throughout the weekend, so stay tuned.  You can now check out a longer stretch of Sunway, open to the 3B trail.  Please note the Northwoods Gondola is open for intermediates and experts only today- beginners should find their turns on Bear Cub Run. 

Special Notes

Friday's lift ticket prices are discounted to $69 for adults, $59 for teens and seniors, and just $39 for juniors- save an additional $10pp when you donate a non-perishable food item at the window!  Enjoy lunch at the Food Court- Fridays's special is a Fish Fry- hand-breaded haddock with french fries and your choice of tartar or cocktail sauce for $12.  RFID Tip: Keep your new SKI3 Card in a pocket all by itself when passing through the gates.  Our Nordic Center at the Ski Bowl is open noon-6pm today!  Safety reminder: Riding the lift with small children?  Load so the smallest one is located between you and the lift attendant.
