We begged, we pleaded and only when Winter Park Resort delayed opening day until November 15th, did the snow gods finally listen.
While the majority of the US shuddered at images of the Polar Plunge making it’s way down from Canada, Winter Park joyously threw its mitten clad hands in the air, as big fat flakes of snow started falling from the skies.
And it’s still falling!
The weather forecast below comes from Snowforecast.com (‘Predicting sick days since 1998’), and it is looking great for the season kick off in Winter Park, Colorado, with more than a foot on the books.
So, does this mean for opening day? Well, our contacts at the Resort remain coy about the runs that they plan to open on Saturday, but a gambling man might hedge their bets on Parkway & Larry Sale for good odds for now.
There’s also a few bonus events going on this Opening Day for Winter Park Resort’s 75th Anniversary, which puts the emphasis of the weekend more more on celebration, and less on getting as much vert’ as possible. Get in the lift line early for a chance to score some commemorative swag, free drink coupons, and head to the Derailer bar between 3 pm – 5 pm for live music and fun.
