March is always a month of transition. It seems that this year the transition arrived weeks ahead of schedule. The ski season has been trying for both our resort and our guests. We had very few stretches of consistent cold weather and snowmaking temperatures. We have tried our best to provide the winter sport activities, that so many love, with the hospitality and service level that we pride ourselves in delivering. We just want to pass along a huge thanks to all of our passionate winter guests and want to assure everyone that we will do everything in our power to finish out the 16/17 ski season as strong as possible. We have announced that snowmaking will return for the first weekend of March and we will stay open as long as we can provide safe, enjoyable conditions. Let’s hope that we can end the season on a high note and look forward to a great 17/18 winter.
Beyond our winter sports, the resort will continue to be in full swing. Spring Wine Festival arrives the weekend of April 8th and 9th. This event has become a real staple of our yearly calendar. Last year we saw over 3,000 guests during the two day event. The event features over 40 vendors, including area wineries, food vendors, craft vendors, and live entertainment. This is one you don’t want to miss out on!
Keep an eye out for the return of some other great promotions and events as well such as Margarita Mondays, Music Under the Stars, Half-Priced Sushi Wednesdays, and Sunday Night Jazz on the Deck. As the season changes, the excitement will remain at Bear Creek. Have a happy St. Patrick’s Day and a wonderful month of March!
