Spring Conditions Update, Events and Discounts
Posted March 23, 2012
With the summer-like weather, skiers and riders are celebrating the spring by sporting tank tops, shorts and sunglasses! The spring conditions have been full of soft bumps and soaking up rays at the Roaring Brook Umbrella Bars and deck. We piled up the snow on Superstar trail, so if you like soft snow along with tons of sunshine, The Beast is the place to get your spring skiing and riding fix.
The unseasonably warm temperatures this week has caused our snow pack to melt faster than we hoped. Despite our Mountain Operation team's best efforts, for this weekend we will be offering skiing and riding on advanced terrain. Walking is required to access some terrain and there is no beginner terrain available.
We will be spinning the Bear Mountain Quad and Superstar Express Quad. Although we’re skiing and riding down two peaks, they are both isolated. So, if you’re interested in skiing or riding on the isle of Bear Mountain and you want to return to K-1, simply hop on a shuttle – they’ll be going back and forth throughout the day.
The final Monster Energy's K-Town Showdown event is on! The rail jam will take place at the base of the Superpipe at Bear Mountain, March 24. With the changing conditions, be sure to check the Snow Report and the Calendar of Events for the latest updates on conditions and events.
For this weekend, key lifts are scheduled to be open from 8:00 a.m.-4:00 p.m. Lift tickets will be $59 for Adults (19-64), $50 for Young Adults/Seniors (13-18/65+) and $41 for Juniors (7-12).
Beyond skiing, riding, hitting rails and soaking up the sunshine, we have some great events and deals this weekend at Killington Resort and Pico Mountain.
Tweed Winter Carnival, March 23-24
Pico Mountain teams up with Tweed River Productions to kick off the weekend with the first ever Tweed Winter Carnival.
