Snow news is good news!

Snow news is good news! Snow depth at many resorts is still pretty awesome; 63” at Alpine Meadows, 50” at Boreal, 66” at Heavenly, 88” at Kirkwood, 64” at Northstar, 76” at Sierra-At-Tahoe, and 72” at Squaw Valley; some of  the best depth we’ve seen all season! But you better hit the slopes before it melts. Temperatures are below freezing at night, but up to 55 degrees F during the day.

Also, get ready for our “End-of-Season Sale” April 12th and 13th. We need to clear some of the shelves to make room for next season’s equipment, so this is your opportunity to purchase some great equipment at some very reasonable prices!  You owe it to yourself to at least come by and take a look!  We will be servingcomplimentary hot dogs and sodas, too (including vegetarian and kosher), and Nuki, our Siberian husky mascot will be there to help pass out balloons to the kids.  You don’t want to miss this!

MLK Weekend: 10% OFF now through the 20th

Martin Luther King Weekend (MLK) is rapidly approaching (January 18, 19 and 20th). The snow has been a little weak the last couple of weeks, but some resorts are doing better than others. Heavenly Valley is reporting a 31” to 39” base, probably the best we have found, with 4” to 6” from this last snowfall this past weekend. Boreal reports a 30” to 34” base. Diamond Peak 20” to 30”. Sugar Bowl 16” to 30”. Soda Springs 24”. Northstar and Squaw Valley, both 18” to 22”. Other resorts are looking similar. We found some quotable quotes from recent skiers online: “Finally some fresh snow. Wasn’t a lot maybe 3-5 inches, but got some fresh turns finally.” Another one, this one from Alpine: “Not many people. Short-to-no line. Fresh new snow… great day for snowboarding and skiing.” And another: “Fresh powder snow and not too many people.” That was this last weekend, of course. Who knows what the weather will be like next weekend (certainly not the weatherman), but there is snow, and most likely Spring Skiing conditions, so dig out your favorite Aloha shirt and lather on the sun screen! What the heck; if we are having Spring in January, maybe we will have Winter in February! Kind of a repeat of last year… maybe. And just to add to the fun, we will reduce our pricing by 10% all this week, through the 20th, in honor of the Reverend King. It’s the least we can do!

See you soon, and as always, Think Snow!
