We got an inch of fresh snow at the base of the mountain today and a good 3 inches on the upper elevations, and it's really sticking to the trails nicely. We could see another inch or two tonight, and right now we're looking at 6 inches of snow tomorrow night into Wednesday!

The skiing and riding is fabulous and just keeps getting better with every flake of snow that falls. AND according to weather reports, the snow keeps coming this week with some light snow showers Thursday and Friday, so things should be in excellent shape if you want to spend Easter at the Loaf.

We have lots of activities planned for Sunday, starting with a downhill sunrise service - SuperQuad loads at 5:30 a.m. Traditional Easter Service is at 9 a.m. at Richard Bell Chapel, and another downhill worship will start at 11 a.m. at the bottom of the Double Runner chair. Children will be able to meet the Easter Bunny from 8:30-9:30 a.m. in the King Pine Room that day. There will also be a scavenger hunt for 8-12 year olds, and the Easter Costume Parade starts at 11 a.m.

Also, our annual Season Pass Holder Barbecue is 12-2 p.m. Sunday at the Shipyard Brew Haus. Don't forget to bring your pass!

Reggae Fest is getting closer every day, and time is running out to get your Platinum One-Love, all-venue pass. These babies get you into all things reggae, all weekend long, and they're nearly gone. Jamaican superstar Barrington Levy headlines this year's bash, with support from seven other bands, including the top US based reggae act, John Brown's Body. Get your tickets now at 1-800.THE.LOAF, and see why the original spring reggae bash is the biggest and the best.

Sun Peaks Resort
The final weekend of 2006-2007 winter operations is going to be fun as we get excited to celebrate Tod Mountain Days.

A new addition this year to Tod Mountain Days is the Comedy Festival taking place April 6th to 8th. With two complimentary outdoor shows for families during the day, and two shows scheduled for those of drinking age later in the evening we’ll be sure to have you rolling in the aisles with laughter.

We will also be hosting our two annual events, the Dummy Downhill on Saturday, April 7th and
the Slush Cup
Sunday, April 8th. Everyone is welcome to participate in both of these events. At the Dummy Downhill participants come up with their most creative design, attach it to a set of skis and launch it off our jump. Points are awarded for design, coolness, and destruction upon impact. This year will feature two classes, a Family Class and an Open Class.

On Sunday get ready for the Slush Cup. Participants get dressed up in their funniest costumes, and hurl themselves across the sixty foot pond of ice cold slushy water. Points are awarded for costume, style, silliness, and form as riders try to skim across the pond. It’s a great spectator sport if you’re not quite brave enough to join in!

GIRDWOOD, Alaska (March 29) - Olympian Stacey Cook (Mammoth Mountain, CA) and a healthy Jeremy Transue (Hunter, NY) set the stage Thursday for the Nature Valley U.S. Alpine Championships as they won FIS downhill races at sun-bathed Alyeska Resort.
