“…We are the world, we are the children, We are the ones who make a brighter day, So let’s start giving, There’s a choice we’re making, We’re saving our own lives, It’s true we’ll make a better day, Just you and me..” (MJ ’85)
Snow is falling tonight at Holiday Valley and the slopes are skiing/riding fine. The cross country trails are open and we’ll be operating the Sky Flyer Coaster and Tubing Park tonight through Sunday. The Tubing Park has 20 single lanes and 3 new family lanes for those who would like to hook their tubes together and ride as a group. The Li'l Tuber’s area is groomed and open, along with the ice rink available for skating (go look in the attic for those skates! and give it a try). Back here on the slopes we have moguls on Chute and Morning Star, a "Whale Watch" on the east side of Yodeler and fresh snow on Shadows to ski in along with Falcon. The Wall has been groomed this week and it's in good shape. The Boarder cross course on Moon Shadow will open to all guests after the events there Saturday and Sunday. We’ll see a freestyle mogul event on Chute Saturday and on Sunday we’ll host a slopestyle competition on Foxfire. Slide on by and watch the young athletes compete.More details are available on our website. The Outpost, Riglet Park, and Terrain Garden located on the east side of School Haus are excellent skill development areas for freestyle/slopestyle skiing and riding. Snowmaking is off again this weekend but they will be running again mid-week next week to build up the spring reserves. Spring? Where did that come from? The days are starting to get longer and truth be known we are on day 66 of the 2014-15 season and right about the mid point of our winter. The morning sunrises have been spectacular this week and there is nothing better than hitting Morning Star or Crosscut at first tracks. The Grooming Crew continues to plane and till our slopes into great corduroy each morning and the snow depth is consistent and wall to wall on most all our trails. With the cold temps and natural snow in the immediate forecast glade skiing will be in play soon. Remember “We are the one who make a brighter day” so come on out and enjoy all winter has to offer and for sure it will be a brighter day! See you on the slopes! .
