A good day to play hookey and go skiing !

Rich and i have weekday passes to Mad River so when I work all weekend long and work at night, I won’t feel too guilty cutting out for a few hours and today is the day! Even if you don’t have a pass, you might want to consider it. Here’s from MRG’s website this morning:

Starting today we will be switching to special Spring hours and rates. We will be spinning the lifts from 9:30 AM to 4:30 PM and midweek lift tickets are a mere $29 for the rest of the season.  Today will simply be the best $29 you ever spent! Bluebird skies and temps in the upper 20’s. The skiing, in a word, is unbelievable, with 28″-36″ of Champlain Powder during the St. Patty’s Weekend “snow event”!   The skiing is downright ludicrous with some of the fluffiest powder this side of Utah.  You absolutely owe it to yourself to make the pilgrimage to Mad River Glen right now. you won’t be disappointed. The grooming “fleet” has been out in force pinning down the fluff on the novice and intermediate terrain.  It will be a corduroy paradise out there today  for those who like that kind of thing. The legendary steeps and bumps are about as good as they get and our glades, those famous glades, well you can only begin to imagine how good they are skiing. During the midweek period we will spin the Single Chair, the Sunnyside Double and the Callie’s Corner Handle Tow from 9:30 AM to 4:30 PM.   Obviously 100% of our fabled main mountain terrain is wide open with some of the finest conditions in recent memory.
