So everyone is aware, our goal is to open for the season on the December 15-16 weekend but we'll certainly need some help from "Old Man Winter" if we are going to be able to pull that off. So keep an eye on the RAMP Weather Page and be sure to check out The Single Chair Weather Blog's forecast for the season ahead.
Don't forget that there are only 9 shopping days left to get your Mad Cards! Mad Cards are the best ski value we offer AND always a great gift idea. Even if you are only going to come up for one weekend this year it pays to take advantage of this deal. Order yours TODAY as that pesky deadline can really sneak up on you with the holiday crush.
Don't forget that if your kids are int eh kids programs we must have they're paperwork filled out before they can be placed in a group and before they can participate. Click here to find the Seasonal Kids Program forms. If you are unsure if you have done it already contact the Ski School Office.
Take care and...
The Mad Card is the best ski value of the season! A MAD CARD costs $144 and gets you 3 transferable day tickets that can be used any day throughout the 2012-13 season. That's only $48/day ($21 savings off a weekend ticket - $24 off a holiday ticket). Plus additional savings all season.
The catch is they are only available until December 15 - so be sure to capitalize today! The Mad Card is the perfect gift for the skier in your life.
Join us for a family-friendly New Year's Eve Celebration in the cozy Basebox Lodge. The party will take place on New Year's Eve from 6:30 to 10:30 PM and will feature; Gen. Stark's Pub will be open for that famous MRG conviviality too.
