Mid-winter snow conditions and spring ski events make this a great weekend to ski. Sunday River’s Parrot Head takes place this weekend, with Pond Skimming on Sunday. Sugarloaf is set to host the East Coast Pond Skimming Championships today. Killington’s Bear Mountain Mogul Challenge is on, and Okemo’s Slush Cup takes place today at Jackson Gore. BodeFest is happening at Cannon with Bode Miller himself. Bretton Woods lift tickets are $29 today and for the rest of the ski season.
That’s just a sampling of the ski fun going on around New England. So get out there for some spring skiing and sunshine while you can - sure beats doing your taxes!
