UPDATE: monday, 4-8-13 AT 9:00aM:
On behalf of us all here at Bluewoood, I simply want to take this time to say a final few words of apprecation for your continued patronage and support throughout what has been a wonderful 2012/13 season. It was a special season in many ways for us, our staff, our families and all our many guests. We cannot thank you enough for being a part of this season, and know that when we all look back on this winter, there will be many smiles, good vibes and positive words as we were certainly very blessed with an ample number of quality snow days all winter long!
I think our little guy said it best when rolling down from the ski area yesterday...."it stinks the season is over...I love this place!" Pretty much sums it up....
Thanks again to all our loyal passholders and guests along with our many dedicated, passionate staff members....all of you are most certainly a huge part of the Ski Bluewood Family!
An EPIC winter it was....and, we are truly looking forward to another one in 2013/14!
Post from Sunday: We roll today with our Grand Finale' in what has truly been one amazing season here at BW. This final day is all about our commitment and dedication towards the freestyle terrain and terrain parks, so hopes are some come out to enjoy what should be a most stellar day to put the exclamation point on this 2012/13 season.
The Triple Nickel is slated to run from 10am-3pm, and our Park Crew is about to roll out to put the finishing touches and shaping efforts on the many features spread throughout the Nickel-side slopes. The Crew has stepped up to the challenge all season long, and just wait to see what we have in-store today for your final throwdowns, airs, slides and such here today....all leading to one end result~~GOOD TIMES!
Currently we have temps in the low 30s, and it is snowing here at the mountain! We've received nearly an inch of new snow overnight and could see several inches fall as the day moves along.
I want to quickly thank all the staff members, their families, our season passholders and our other guests whom joined us on the slopes yesterday for our Appreciation Day. Through all the ups and downs of the weather this past week....Ma Nature decided to give us one more blessing before our final day of skiing the main mountain~~so, she dropped the temps about 10 degrees and let the snow fall! This "event" lasted about an hour and a half, and was certainly a pleasant surprise~~and, most importantly, the "freshies" helped to provide some much-better-than-expected skiing conditions throughout the day. We are definitely most thankful for the many good fortunes the weather has provided us all season long here at Bluewood...and hopes are the future winter seasons are as kind!
So, about it from my end this morning...thanks again for your continued patronage and support. As many of you most certainly know, Bluewood is a very special ski area for many various reasons~~the laid back, family friendly environment~~the "no hustle & no bustle" stuff~~our commitment to community~~our commitment to respective youth & outreach programs~~our most excellent varied terrain~~some of the most awesome tree & off area skiing, anywhere~~some of the most skilled & hardworking snowcat operators and mountain ops crew in the industry~~our sweet terrain parks and commitment to freestyle terrain~~our many passionate, dedicated & skilled staff members~~and, YOU, our many loyal passholders and guests!
Ski Bluewood truly represents what ski areas are all about---awesome skiing, great people and GOOD TIMES......and, we are proud to be a part of the Bluewood Family!
PARTY IN THE PARK on Sunday, April 7, will have the Triple Nickel rolling from 10am-3pm (please note that the Nickel is the ONLY lift in operation on this day!). This day is dedicated towards freestyle terrain and will be primarily revolving around The Wood terrain park. The day is open to any freestylers (or any others wanting to enjoy the final day!)....featuring $20 Lift Tickets and that ticket price includes a hot-off-the-grill lunch! Season Passes are valid, however, no other discounts or coupons will be accepted this day. There will be no rental shop, no snow-sports school, and very limited food service options...this day is about THE PARKS at Bluewood, and we want to celebrate our revamped commitment to our terrain parks with an exclusive day for our park riders....come join the Park Crew on this inaugural season finale, and you can certainly expect some fresh features for this one!
