The three day weekend approaches and it's snowing in the mountains. This winter just keeps delivering the downhill goods. After last weekend's thaw and spring-like skiing, ski resorts needed a fresh coating of soft snow and that's just what they are getting today. Many resorts are also turning on their snow guns again, as winter temperatures return, to resurface over their decent base depths. The stars are aligning for another good ski weekend ahead, and it's a three day with the bonus MLK Monday.
In the past, before online booking and social media mania, MLK weekend would be a sell out on the ski slopes. Not so much the case anymore. Skiers have taken a wait and see before they ski approach, leaving availability up to the 11th hour. Ski resorts around New England are still flaunting availability and special rates for this long weekend. So, skiers and riders, it's not too late to make plans for a snowy MLK at your favorite ski mountain.
See you on the slopes
