West Dover, Vt. (March 26, 2013) – The calendar may say it’s spring, but things are looking more like mid-winter at Mount Snow thanks to almost six feet of snow that has fallen in the last month and the resort is providing guests the opportunity to enjoy it with lift ticket deals, summer sports on-snow and a scavenger hunt with the winner going home with a season pass for next year. There is still at least a couple more weeks of Vernal Eternal to go with events, festivals and live music planned through the first weekend of April.
For Good Friday, March 30, Mount Snow is offering $29 lift tickets when purchased at least 48 hours in advance online, but even if skiers and riders miss out on that deal lift tickets will be just $49 at the window on the day of; a sizable discount from the regular midweek rate of $75.
On Saturday, March 30 the resort will host its Inaugural On-Snow Golf Tournament. Mount Snow’s grooming operators are going to build a pitch-and-putt nine hole golf course on the wide, mellow grade of the South Bowl trail complete with greens and tee boxes for the scramble format tournament. Costumes are required and registration will occur Saturday morning in the Main Base Lodge; it is $20 per foursome and prizes will be awarded for lowest score, best individual costume, most improvement needed (highest score) and any hole-in-ones. Mount Snow will provide golf balls so participants just need to bring a pitching wedge and a putter. Skiers must remain clicked into their skis and snowboarders can swing with one foot out of their bindings.
A Golden Easter Egg will be hidden somewhere at the resort on Sunday, March 31 and there will be clues posted throughout the day. Whoever finds the Golden Easter Egg will go home with a 2013/2014 Mount Snow season pass. There will also be 1,000 small Easter eggs hidden around the resort holding candy and other goodies for families to enjoy.
