SHRED IT TO ME, BABY

Whether you did a little snow dance, wished upon a snowy star or prayed to the snow gods, something has worked. I’m insanely jealous of the Island’s high school kids who are, as I type this, ripping through fresh powder on Mount Washington during the annual Spring Break SnoJam. The resort has received a ton of new snow over the past 48 hours and have a base hovering around 200cm.

It would seem that the luck ‘o the Irish has fallen on Mt. Washington’s skiers and snowboarders – rather appropriately – as the mountain just announced that the season will be extended past April 13 to open on weekends until the end of April!

If the fantastic Spring conditions aren’t enough to entice you, the mountain will also be taking advantage of daylight savings with extended operating hours as well as some other special surprises. I’ll keep you updated as soon as I know!

(P.S. Don’t forget to make your way up there on April 12 for the annual Barq’s Root Beer Slush Cup! Check out this video from 2007.)

  1. You should have seen the mountains this morning…sun shining on a blanket of white…beautiful!

  2. I’m excited for the insane amount of snow the local NorthShore mountains received. There is also more in the forecast. We’re going up to Cypress tomorrow after work.

    We wish we could have done on Sunday but we had to drive friends to the airport in the morning. I miss good, fresh snow!
