York City --- February 10, 2013
Mount Snow, in West Dover,
Vermont will be attracting thousands of skiers in the coming days.
After Blizzard Nemo blanketed the mountain with over a foot of
fresh snow, all trails are expected to be open on a sunny Sunday.
towns in Vermont were hit with wind gusts of up to 45 mph on Saturday,
which forced Mount Snow to close certain lifts until the winds
died down. Mount Snow, for example, was only about half open,
though the new blizzard snowfall has now opened up 100 percent
of its slopes for Sunday. Mount Snow's lifts are designed to handle
high winds, says spokesman Dave Meeker. The new bubble
lift, for one, weighs a heavy 1,300 pounds before skiers climb
aboard, and was designed aerodynamically to withstand strong winds;
a shield completely encases riders so they stay comfortable on
the way up.
and boarders decide they cant handle it, resorts including
Mount Snow, Hunter, Ski Sundown and Smuggler's Notch have snow
guarantee policies that allow people to return their lift tickets
within an hour in exchange for a voucher to return later.
But for those
heading to Mount Snow on Sunday and the week ahead, can expect
perfect ski conditions, sun, little wind and temperatures in the
Snow, with its 80 trails and 20 lifts, is hosting special Cloud
Nine Nuptials on Valentines Day, February 14th. The southern Vermont
ski and golf resort is also offering a deal for Valentines
Day consisting of two lift tickets for $49 when purchased in advance
online. Your wedding procession will be hosted by Mount Snow with
a ride up a chairlift, the altar is a podium positioned at the
pinnacle of a heart painted on the snow, and formal footwear is
replaced with ski or snowboard boots. That will be the scene for
"ski couples" wanting to renew their vows or tie the
knot for the first time at a very romantic summit.
fun continues the next day with the Red Bull Frozen Rush. For
the first time ever, a short course off-road Pro4 racing truck
will take to the snow in Vermonts Green Mountains to battle
gravity and the elements. The four-wheel drive vehicle, designed
to handle just about anything a summertime off-road speedway can
throw at it, will face an onslaught of new challenges when it
enters Mount Snow's winters frozen playground. Soft snow,
steep terrain, ice and freezing temperatures is a recipe for disaster
in any vehicle, but that wont slow down champion off-road
racer, Ricky Johnson. Armed with a set of custom spiked and specially
designed tires from BFGoodrichs Research and Development
team, Ricky will wager his skills, experience, and even his trucks
capabilities as he attempts to conquer the slopes.
Snow, the largest and closet ski mountain to both Boston and
New York, has been well known since 1954 for its warm environment
and emphasis of placing safety first on the mountain. Recently,
Mount Snow spent over $8.5 million on new ski lifts. The Bluebird
Express just went into operation as a technologically advanced
chairlift and it is nothing short of incredible. The bubbles on
each chair can be lowered by the passengers to provide similar
protection as a gondola cabin, but with the convenience of keeping
skis and boards on their feet. The seven minute ride from base
to summit is so smooth the only reason you would want it to end
is so you can enjoy another amazing run down one of Mount Snows
Snow has earned several awards for customer service. When Mother
Nature is not making snow, Mount Snow is. Before the recent blizzard,
Mount Snow was functioning beautifully with over 50 trails on
a combination of natural and man made white gold. And during these
difficult times, the skiing was excellent. One can only imagine
what kind of winter paradise awaits both new and expert skiers
with a fresh, natural coating of over 15 inches from the sky.

the Bud Light Mardi Gras awaits you after finishing a long, challenging
run tomorrow. Is it Mount Snow or Mount Fun?
