I'm going to Powder Ridge on Saturday March 17 and would love some company. With the snow we are getting, the slopes should be pretty good. Also lift passes are only $25, which is a steal!
Powder Ridge is also the only mountain in the area to offer snow biking, which is a ton of fun and requires almost no skill beyond being able to ride a bike. First timers will get a lesson as part of the bike rental.
I listed the event for 11 AM but, for those who want to get a jump start, the mountain opens at 10 AM I believe. I would suggest getting there early because the rental lines can be quite long. We can meet in the lodge at 11 after everyone gets their gear together. For those bringing their own skis and boards, helmets are also required on the mountain. I have a light blue helmet so look for me. Or, PM me to get my cell phone if you want to take a few runs first.
The mountain offers regular "lodge" food, but for those with a more distinguished palate, the restaurant and full bar upstairs at Fire at the Ridge is excellent.
If you have questions, PM me. Hope to see a big group there!
