General Comments
Good afternoon and happy Fat Tuesday! We've got lots to celebrate today; bluebird sky, plenty of snow, and uncrowded wide open runs. This February spring weather is also perfect for hanging out on the deck with a book and a cold drink, perhaps a hurricane? Come up and ride for a couple hours, and then hang on the deck and work on your tan (don't forget your sunscreen). We welcome you to come on up and celebrate Mardi Gras with Meadows - let the good times roll!
Specials & Events
Park and Ride runs Sat/Sun with $25 round-trip transportation to Meadows. Coming up on Friday, we have a Fat Bike festival happening. There's a 20k skate race at the Nordic Center on Saturday, and a free avalanche awareness clinic happening on Saturday. We'll be open this coming Monday night with $15 tickets for the annual Shine a Light on Cancer event.
