OPENING DAY AT SNOWSHOE: OUR FAVORITE SHOULD-BE-NATIONAL-HOLIDAY

get more from BRO

There are three things certain in life: taxes, death and Snowshoe’s iconic Opening Day Weekend. After patiently waiting for 236 days since closing last March, Opening Day is finally within reach. Scheduled for Friday, November 22, the “Island in the Sky” will open the season with a loud bang, thanks to its army of snow guns, and pulling out all the stops in the après department to celebrate the return of the season of seasons.  And since Opening Day weekend is not to be missed, you know the energy level and stoke factor will be over the top to welcome winter properly.

And it doesn’t start and end with just one weekend. The people in power have decided to make this winter season full of activities tailored to knuckleheads of all ages. Costumes, terrain park competitions, brew fests (keep an eye out for the locally crafted Shay’s Revenge Stout) and live acts will take the stage throughout the season.

Still need a few more reasons to call in sick?
How about an off-road adventure to the backcountry escape room, a soothing spa treatment?

Bottom-line?
Wax your boards and skis, put on your power song, and turn the phone to “Do Not Disturb.”

About Snowshoe Mountain:
This is Snowshoe – part pure adventure, part cushy comfort, 100% contagious happiness. Our three distinct areas all have personalities worth getting to know. With the perfect amount of vertical in all the right places. A slew of kickers, rails, and other flip-worthy features. Plenty of runs groomed with the same attention paid to top show dogs.
