Update Thursday, 9 March @ 6:15am - Here we go!  Operations resume today from 12pm-8pm with 100% snow coverage, plus we're throwing out a $29 ticket special cause we're stoked to have great weather & sweet snow!  Please check SNOW REPORT page for additional slope & park updates.  Temps are definitely winter like and the forecast is calling for lots of sunshine today!  The crew has done a nice job with getting all back in order following a little bit of crazy weather, and we will have some pretty solid skiing & riding conditions today on the hill.  Grab the crew and an extra layer, and head on out to the slopes where Winter Is Still Here in a BIG way!  Enjoy, and don't forget that SEASON PASSES are NOW on-sale & SMASH with BURTON SNOWBOARDS is ON this weekend!  Also, today is COLLEGE DAY with Indeed Brewing Company...$19 tickets for all college students, food & drink specials, live music, prizes & giveaways in the Moosehead this evening!   

 

Update Tuesday, 7 March @ 11:30am:  Operations to resume on Thursday, March 9 at 12pm!   It's been pretty intense here around these parts over the past 24-36 hours...the unseasonably warm temps Sunday & Monday have been replaced with colder ones and looks like even more winter-like temps are coming this way as we move ahead.  The rains were fairly short-lived, and we even had a few flakes of snow falling here earlier today!  It has been quite breezy here today with serious sustained winds and gusts registering in that 40-60mph range, but these should are expected to diminish by tomorrow evening.  Our crews are beginning to hit the hill here this evening to start bringing it all back together.  Our plan is to get in a few rounds of grooming between now and Thursday, just so the slopes & parks are back in quality shape.  We still have a lot of slopes here on the hill, and I anticipate some quality skiing & riding here when we roll....plus, perhaps some more natural snow may bless us as we roll through the weekend and into next week!!

 

Monday, 6 March at 6:30am:  Operations suspended for Monday & Tuesday (March 6 & 7) due to the unseasonable and inclement weather.  However, our plan is to resume operations on either Wednesday or Thursday depending upon how all actually unfolds.  Just a slight hit of the "pause" button here, folks.  We still have a great deal of snow throughout the sloeps, plus, looks like we'll see some more chances of natural snow here as the week rolls along!

Don't forget that SMASH - Spirit Mountain's Annual Spring Happening is ON this Saturday!  Join us and Burton Snowboards for our 2017 SMASH Weekend full of good times, great events and family fun for all.  Lean-to-Ski & Ride Specials, Snowboard Demos, Rail Jams, Mini-Park, Slosh Pit, Silly Slalom, Costume Contest and much more!  

Just a little bump in the road and a few days of not-so-pleasant weather on tap, but seriously, no worries as we will be back skiing & riding here very soon....and, we expect quality slope & park conditions for the weekend ahead as the cold returns & hopefully some NEW snow as well!
