From Slow Season to Snow Season

Snowlander editor's note

It's been an interesting start to the season thus far. Most area resorts made Opening Day announcements. Some of them happened as scheduled; some were delayed by one week, others were delayed indefinitely. For those who have been able to log some vertical this season, give thanks. For those who have gotten into their car and made a road trip to ski powder, I hope you realize how lucky you are. But every single one of us needs to dance. Snow dance, that is.

As we wait for the season to get into full swing, ski areas are still working hard to get or remain open. Event and holiday specials are being offered in one form or another by all of the region's resorts, so check out the Events Calendar (page 17) for the upcoming holiday events, and with individual resorts for their special holiday packages and offers.

So between reminiscing about previous season powder days, incessantly checking your weather app for changes in the upcoming forecast, and wearing out your favorite ski-movie DVD, remember to do your snow dances, sacrifice your old skis to Ullr and do whatever you need to do to get it to snow!

Hoping to see you all at the mountain very soon,
