Another great ski weekend is in store for skiers and snowboarders. The return to colder weather means that are once again where they were at a few weeks ago. Mountains everywhere are promising a great weekend ahead. The weather should be colder than the past week and feature some snowfall to varying levels, depending on location. Expect overcast conditions, meaning a firm base and nicely groomed trails to enjoy.
Keep an eye out for mountains with chalets or warming huts at their summits. These are the ideal spots to enjoy a relaxing moment away from the slopes and near a fireplace.
If you are interested in trying out something new for a change, head to mountains that offer other activities beyond skiing. Some offer alpine luge (Sommet Saint-Sauveur), luge sleds (Le Massif and Vallée du Parc), while others still offer skiing until midnight and beyond with great electric ambiance and thematic events.
Still, if you wish to enjoy the slopes on skis, perhaps a ski demo is visiting nearby. These are the perfect opportunity to try on the latest skis and technology for free. Perhaps a newer ski will enable you to take your skiing to the next level or give you more confidence and control on the slopes.
In related news... there are rumors and speculation going around, that Vail Resorts may announce shortly that they have acquired Stowe Mountain Resort in Vermont. Definitely something to keep an eye out for should this pan out to be true.
I would like to invite you to share your experiences and adventures on the slopes with us on the SlopeEdge forums by clicking here. Perhaps you discovered a great new hidden slope, the perfect stash of snow in a glade, or an amazing first visit to a new mountain. We would love to hear about it.
Enjoy the fantastic weekend ahead... and happy skiing!
