Snowshoe celebrates season’s last hurrah with free skiing

March 16, 2011
The Inter-Mountain

Ski season isn't over yet. Snowshoe Mountain Resort has seen 15 inches of new snow fall in the last week, and on March 11 the resort announced that lodging guests will ski free for the last week of the season, March 21-27. Snowshoe's Last Hurrah festivities will also include savings on mountaintop lodging accommodations, rental equipment, retail offerings, adventure activities and the traditional end-of-season Pond Skimming event on March 26.

With some great late-season snow, Snowshoe is offering the region's most open terrain with 39 of the Basin area's 40 slopes expected to be open through the end of the season. That open terrain will include the resort's famed Western Territory, offering 1,500 vertical feet and nearly 1.5 miles of leg-burning action. For those guests not able to spend the night with the resort, walk-up lift tickets for the same period of March 21-27 will be available for $26, or 50 percent off of the resort's typical value season pricing for that period.

Lift tickets won't be the only discounted products at the resort. Snowshoe's rental shops will also be offering discounts on Head and Burton ski and snowboard rental equipment, and Snowshoe-owned retail shops will be offering discounts of up to 50 percent on a variety of products including outer wear, footwear, skis, boards, other ski and snowboard equipment and more. Snowshoe's Outdoor Adventure activities, including guided snowmobile tours and snowcat tours, will also be offering special Last Hurrah savings.

On March 26, Snowshoe will host the annual Last Hurrah Pond Skimming Event. Daring skiers and riders will attempt to skim their way across a man-made lake on the resort's beginner slope located just outside the Village. Snowshoe's DJ Judd will be providing musical entertainment and revelers will compete in a "most rad" costume contest and will enjoy a Happy Hour "Survivors Party" at Moonshine Pub.

Guests taking advantage of the free lift ticket offer will also see great savings on Snowshoe's mountaintop lodging accommodations. Lodging packages start a $125 a night for a gold-rated junior studio in the resort's picturesque Village. Accommodating up to four people, that's $32 per night for accommodations and skiing and riding.

Snowshoe has seen more than 140 inches of natural snowfall this season and continues to boast base depth averages of more than 3 feet across its open terrain.
