Here comes the SUN!

Taken Wednesday, 3/6 from Vista Glades.

Sun? Is that you? We've been fortunate to have some very comfortable weather for what seems like the last two weeks. But one thing we haven't had is sun! That already seems to be changing today as the sun is starting to peek out and is expected to stick around for the day Saturday. The temperatures could climb into the upper 30s by Sunday, so it seems that we'll be shedding a layer and skiing on the less bundled side as we're visited by a bit of spring-like weather!
Trails and Conditions:
For the second weekend in a row all 70 of our trails will have their ropes down. That means you'll have your pick of terrain from wide open lanes to tree-filled glades and anything and everything in between. We have had a few small snowfalls to keep things fresh this week, but you can expect the majority of snow surfaces to be packed powder out on the hill. The groomed snow feels pretty soft and should remain this way with the mild temps that are being called for the weekend. There are plenty of bump trails to check out on the steeper terrain such as Preacher and Playground, but you can also find some intermediate bumps on trails like Glades or Coyote. The Jungle Jib has recently re-opened with a couple new features and this weekend is your last chance to hit the giant US Airbag, which is here until the 10th. 
Tavern and Events:
There's a lot going on this weekend starting with Ski and Ride With The Point today. Once your legs are toast, catch the apr├Ęs party in the JMT. Yummy Harpoon will be on special. Today is also Free Nordic Ticket day and you can snag a Free Backcountry Tour starting at 1pm.
Saturday is Hope on the Slopes along with the Ride and Ski New England Party. Kevin Black will provide the soundtrack for the night with live music from 8-11pm. Sunday is trivia night from 6-8pm of course, but Sunday is also the final Subaru and Hyundai Customer Appreciation Day where you can ski and ride for free starting at noon with your Subaru/Hyundai registration. Don't let March get away from you, get to BV!
Passes, Get Your Season Passes!
Peanuts, popcorn, passes! Get yerrrr passes! Sooner than you know it we'll be watching the MLB's opening day. So, this means two things. Take in every possible moment of skiing and riding now AND get prepped for next season by picking up your 2013/2014 All Access Season Pass for the lowest price of the year. 
From now until April 1st our adult pass is $449. And when you buy an adult pass, you'll pay only $99 for a youth pass for kids ages 7-17.* This means a family of four with 2 adults and two dependent children, saves a whopping $360 by purchasing their passes right now. 
New this year, we're offering a Night Pass that allows you to ski and ride from 4pm into the evening for just $119. And, we've changed up our senior passes to lower both the prices and the age requirements. For folks age 65-74, we have our Senior Pass at $199 and for those age 75 and over, the Senior Plus Pass is just $29 for the whole season!
So get your pass now before the weather turns all basebally on you and with the extra cash you save...maybe head to a Red Sox game? Yankees? Your call!
*Child must be a dependent of the adult to be eligible for the $99 youth pass.
