MOUNT SNOW, VT ??” Mount Snow first opened its doors to skiing on December 12, 1954. Now, almost fifty years later, Mount Snow is pleased to announce details surrounding its 50th anniversary celebration – voted one of Vermont’s Top Ten Events by The Vermont Chamber Of Commerce.

“We have chosen one weekend each month to pair up with a particular decade,” explained Mike Murphy, Mount Snow Communications Manager. “An entire season of celebration at Mount Snow kicks off on December 11. It should be a wild ride.”

The selected weekends include various on-snow promotions, contests and activities with themed apr??s-ski parties at the Snow Barn. This 50th winter season also marks the return of Fountain Mountain – the mythic man-made geyser that sprang from Snow Lake during the 1960s.

On December 11 – 12, Mount Snow will celebrate its actual birthday with a full weekend of 1950s fun. Fountain Mountain will flow once again, golden fireworks will decorate the sky, and the 50 Days of Giveaways promotion will kickoff. The Snow Barn will feature a 1950s cover band. On Sunday, December 12, $50 buys 2 lift tickets.

During the same weekend the Mount Snow Valley Chamber of Commerce commences their Nights Before Christmas Celebration, complete with a Gingerbread House Display, Tree Lighting and Country Inn Cookie Tour.

January 15 – 16 marks the return of the 1980s to Mount Snow. Neon colors and pop music will be all the rage during a weekend highlighted by the Mega Mother Hucker and Grommet Rail Jam events.

The 1990s come to town over February 12 -13. The second annual Snowstyle competition will take place at Carinthia, followed by fireworks. Hip-hop artist extraordinaire TONE LOC will perform at the Snow Barn on Saturday evening.

All flower children are invited March 19 – 20 during the 1960s tribute weekend jam-packed with plenty of 60’s music, fun events and fireworks. Mountain Idol, Strongman and woman contests and the Mountain Dew Vertical Challenge are scheduled during this Season Passholder Appreciation weekend.

No 50th Anniversary season celebration would be complete without honoring polyester and platform shoes. On April 9 – 10, the 1970s cover band Dynamite Disco Revue will take over the stage. Solid Gold Disco Blowout Weekend will also feature a fireworks display, costume contests and more.
