The best ski weekend of the year is fast approaching, as is great snowmaking weather. It should be an ideal holiday weekend to get outside and enjoy some of the best conditions of the year. The weather is looking frigid, so instead of sitting home in front of your fireplace to warm up, have a seat and warm up in front of ours after some skiing, boarding, or tubing. There is no better feeling than skiing or boarding, while enjoying great conditions, then kicking back in front of one of our large fireplaces. We have all of your warm up options covered, from enjoying winter sports to enjoying a great meal at the Grille.
The winter is flying by, and before you know it, spring will be knocking on the door. Looking for evidence, pitchers and catchers are reporting to spring training next week! This is a great time of year to get out and enjoy the winter while it lasts. If you are joining us this weekend, please make sure you are bundled up and take precautions before spending extended periods of time outdoors. We hope you and your family enjoy some great time together this weekend while saying a special thank you to our founding fathers, whom made this possible.
Wait, what? Winter weather wallops with wonderful whiteout wildness! Bear Creek is finally receiving the stuff we all pray for. I am looking out my office window at the blizzard like conditions and can’t wait to boot up for the first time this season. I know, we have been open for more than two weeks, and conditions have been outstanding, but something about the fresh stuff, just makes it… what it is. Pure, wonderful, a magical, mystical, divine thing, that glorious frozen moisture from above. Thank you, heavens for dumping down on us your cold fluffy love. This is probably the fluffiest thing I have ever written, but I guess you can tell, I love this snow. I appreciate the mandatory exercise that comes with a big snowfall. It gets everyone off the couch and breathing in the cold air. Bear Creek seems to be in a great spot for this storm to hit us just perfect. We are already measuring over 15 inches deep and still piling up. Tomorrow should be an absolutely amazing day to hit the slopes, and I am predicting a lot of sick days Monday and Tuesday as well. This week ahead would be a great opportunity to take advantage of the great deals with a midweek ski and stay. I can’t wait to see all the likeminded snowboarders and skiers finally getting what they asked for. See you at the top of the mountain!
Winter is my favorite time of year, usually... Don’t get me wrong, I love this season no matter how the temps are but I live in Pennsylvania, not Louisiana, so hopefully the jet stream straightens out, the stars align and winter hits us hard. With January on the horizon and the weather pattern about to change and a baby on the way, I am very excited for the new year to start. As a lifelong snowboarder, and a PA native, I have always loved every part of the winter; snowball fights, shoveling, snowmen, building back yard jumps and rail set ups, base layers, fire places, hot chocolate, and chili. From sledding and snowshoeing and walking on ice, to lift rides and flat light and powder and ice. Winter, ahhh. I have been a Bear Creek employee since that first day, and even worked at Doe Mountain before that, so as far as wanting snow, well I think I want it more than anyone. Actually it is pretty cool that some of my good friends have also been at Bear Creek since the earliest days of existence. Anyway, now that winter is very past due, I hope the change will come in quickly. Our Snowmaking team is tired of waiting, the pumps are primed, the groomers are on standby, the sleds are still shiny, so please winter, come to Bear Creek tonight! Help us celebrate the new year, get cold, like you always do.
