The Ski Renters’ End of Season Sale is scheduled for Saturday, May 4th
Apparently the groundhog was right: he came out of his den and saw his shadow, and now we are enjoying at least six more weeks of winter. This is a tradition that began in Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania in 1887. As the story goes, each year, when the groundhog (known as Punxsutawney Phil), comes out of his den on Groundhog Day, February 2, if he sees his shadow he goes back into his den and we have six more weeks of winter. He must have seen his shadow and then some this year, as we have had more than 337 inches of snowfall since Groundhog Day, including eleven more inches in just the past three days! Spring skiing is about as good as it gets!
In spite of the great snow, most of the resorts are still planning on closing mid-April, with the exceptions of Squaw Valley and Mammoth Mountain. Accordingly, we are planning our End of Season Sale for May 4th, so mark your calendar. Skis, snowboards, boots, jackets, pants, and poles go on sale. This is a great opportunity to pick up some good used equipment at great prices. Like always, we will have free hot dogs and soft drinks to help you keep your energy up while you shop!
We’ll see you then—and in the mean time, think snow (because you can never have too much)!
