Though the calendar says spring, and the ski season is drawing to a close, we’re not quite done yet! As of today, Wednesday, March 27, 2013, we’re still skiing and riding on all 22 of Ski Butternut’s trails, most with excellent edge-to-edge snow coverage, and we still have 32 features in our Twisted Terrain Park. It’s springtime, though, so come prepared with the sunblock, a laid-back attitude, and an appreciation for the heavier spring snow, especially on warmer afternoons.

And we’re gonna make sure that we roar through this spectacular March like lions, right ’til the end, not timidly melt away like lambs.

On that note, we’ve got 2 FUN EVENTS planned for this weekend:

On SATURDAY MARCH 30, we’ll celebrate the joys of spring skiing by getting downright tropical for our annual PARROT HEAD FESTIVAL. Come dressed in your best Hawaiian shirt, and be prepared to kick back on the deck of our main clubhouse lodge. From 12 noon to 2PM, we’ll be blasting some Jimmy Buffett tunes, serving up Cheeseburgers in Paradise and other beach-themed treats, and, if you’re lucky (and 21 or over), we might just roll out the blender and offer some more ‘adult’ beverages. As a family-friendly mountain, of course there will be stuff for the kids, too: A limbo contest, deck bowling, and an on-mountain scavenger hunt for colorful parrots (if you find a parrot, please turn it in to the main office to claim a prize. Please, only one prize per family per day.)

Then, on EASTER SUNDAY MARCH 31, a rare treat: an Easter that falls during ski season. To celebrate the day, we’ll have an on-mountain EASTER EGG HUNT, with colorful plastic eggs hidden around the mountain. Find an egg, turn it into the office, and claim a prize! (Please, only one prize per family per day.)

And lest I forget to mention: Tickets are only $25 for adults, $20 for juniors, and $15 for kids every day for the rest of the season, including this upcoming weekend. Or, if you buy next year’s season pass now, you can start using it immediately.

Come get some turns in while you still can!
