The First Snowfall of the Season

Categories: Guest Connection Weather Blog

It’s always exciting to see the flakes of winter return to Meadows. Each flake represents the potential for another season of powder plunging, cord carving, park popping pleasure at Your Mountain Home. Sure this snowfall will be short lived, and only the upper reaches of the permit area may sustain this little tease of all the great things yet to come. But it sure makes us eager for our yet to be determined opening day, and all the rest that follow.

We'd be remiss in not giving you a quick link to purchase your season pass (in case that's on your "Things to do with the first snow fall" list:

Season Passes

We asked our team to express - in five words or less - what they are doing now to get ready for the season, or what they are most stoked about looking ahead. Here are some of the responses:

The sound of snow falling.

Creating new drink menus!

Hot laps with friends

Ride breaks

Powder days in fright trees

The new trail map

The view from the Mazot

The whole team being together

Park laps in the sun,
Face shots in Private Reserve.
The kind of winter fun,
That we all deserve!

“Opportunities await to enrich lives!”

The Team new and returning!

"One team, one dream" 

”Fresh new jib fleet stoke!”

Setting up for sustainability success!

Setting up for a stellar season!

Happy guests with full stomachs

Excitement around new food products

Crimson Vine-maples 3 weeks early <sight>
That new Boot smell <smell>
Wax on, wax off <feel>
Fresh snow squeak, below 20 <sound>
Winter’s coming, mmm poutine <taste>
Sort of a 5 lines for 5 senses thing…

Forest Park to fright trees! Woohoo
