Holy smokes, we're halfway through the month of October already? Time is flying by as we eagerly await the start of our 2014-15 ski season. Yesterday may have hit 70 degrees here at the mountain, but the snow we saw on Friday, October 10th is a tell-tale sign that the seasons are certainly changing. Before we know it, our snow guns will be cranking and assuming all goes according to plan we'll be skiing and riding sometime in early to mid November.
Until we reach that point, we're trying to keep our mind off of powder and freshies by staying as busy as possible. We want to thank everyone that made the journey to join us for our annual Homecoming Weekend; it was great to see so many familiar faces once again after a long summer apart. The weekend was a blast and gave us a lovely taste of what lays ahead this winter - good times, good friends, and a whole lotta Loaf. Sugarloafers scored some good deals at the CVA used ski gear sale, enjoyed their first Bag Burger of the season, took quite a few photos from the scenic lift rides, and were in general very excited to be back home.
We hosted our annual Uphill Climb this past Sunday and had a fantastic turnout, with over 175 people participating in the demanding three mile, 2400 vertical foot run. Paco Defrancis (28:50) and Tina-Marie Poulin (34:35) took home the titles of men's and woman's overall champion, respectively. You can find photos on our Facebook page and a link to the full results on the event page.
We know it's not always easy to plan a ski trip with little ones, so we eliminated one of the hurdles families have to jump through with our Kids Ski Free promotion. If you book any package for two or more nights before October 31, your kids 12 and under will ski for free. No restricted dates. No gimmicks. Just free. You can check out the details here.
Keep doing your snow dances!
