Man, i can’t remember a Christmas vacation week with so much snow. Over the span of about a week, Mother Nature dumped more than two feet of snow on the mountain (more at the summit), giving us three powder days in quick succession. It was the best holiday present we could have asked for, and it was a heck of a lot better than last year’s Christmas vacation. Can you even remember last year’s Christmas vacation? We can’t. (Each new powder day helps bury any painful memories of last year).
Now here we are in early January of 2013. We’ve got a big month coming up, with lots of cool events, and lots of snow (we sincerely hope). All the action starts Saturday, Jan. 5 with Tele Ski Day, when our free-heeled friends will be able to demo new skis, take a lesson, and enter the lung-busting Skin & Ski Race. Later that night, our Bunyan Room Saturday Nights series kicks off with Element 78 performing live in the Bunyan Room. To get a better idea of what to expect this weekend, and to see conditions for yourself, watch this week’s Almost Weekend Update with Jordan, Loon’s on-camera ‘talent’.
