February is upon us. February is traditionally a month that has the best winter conditions of the year. It is a month that allows us an opportunity to enjoy winter in its full glory. February is also the home of Valentine’s Day as well as the top ski weekend of the year, Presidents Day Weekend. As a child, I looked at February as the prime time for skiing. I viewed it much the same way I viewed July for amusement parks and baseball. It was the peak of the winter season. It was generally a month that was uninterrupted by warm ups, was a month when the snow had a deep base, and to top it all, a break from school was present right in the middle of the month. By the time March arrives, my mind would start switching to spring, but this month was the prime month for winter. I would often try to ski 15-20 times during the month of February, knowing it wouldn’t get any better than this for the ski season. With any luck, we would get help from Mother Nature and the month would be complete. Along with being a month to enjoy the sport you love, it’s also a time to share your love with others. My advice would be to make time for both this month and enjoy the month thoroughly.
At Bear Creek, February is a time of great excitement and great times. It is the perfect month to book your winter vacation, with the prime winter month ahead. In addition, we have live entertainment throughout the resort including music at The Grille on Tuesdays and a whole evening of entertainment at The Trails End every Saturday. This season, mid-week is very affordable for college students, club members, military, and fire department employees with $22 all-day lift tickets on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursdays.
This month is a short month that will go by fast. Don’t miss out on everything it has to offer. At a time when other businesses and locations are slow, Bear Creek is full of excitement. Have a happy Valentine’s Day and Presidents Weekend.
