The latest from the Summit 411 mailer:
"Well...who'd have thought that after last year we'd be back on the white stuff before Thanksgiving? It just goes to show you that life runs in cycles. For every down, there's an up...etc., etc. I could wax on and on, but I digress.
It's our second earliest opening in resort history, so come and help us celebrate. If you haven't reactivated your Big S Pass, do it now at http://www.summitatsnoqualmie.com/reactivate to avoid lines of procrastinators. You'll thank me later...I promise!
Here's something that isn't cyclical. It's the Evo GRAND OPENING! My sources tell me that "It's not what you'd expect...so you'd better come and see it for yourself!" This event includes all of the hottest new snowboard and ski gear, as well as streetwear, shoes and tons of accessories. There's a huge tent sale with gear from 30%-70% off. Brands include Ride, K2, Salomon, Rossignol, Nikita, Oakley, Billabong, Element, Etnies, Option, Armada and more. So if you're yearning for that special piece of equipment that you don't have yet, you'd best check it out. The sale runs Friday-Tuesday. And if you tell them "the backcountry beast from Alpental sent me," you get an additional 10% off at the register! But there's even more reason to attend...
The GRAND OPENING also includes a movie trifecta free of charge on Saturday night- Teddy Bear Crisis, Absinthe's "Futureproof", and Matchstick's "The Hit List." Film starts rolling at 6PM. That's way better than any re-runs you see on t.v. or lame "edited for time and content" movies on cable.
And in the hopes that everyone will get involved, there's the "Get Snowed In" party at Pyramid on November 18th/19th. It's a benefit for the Surfrider Foundation/Snowrider Project, so your dollars help out a worthy cause. For more info visit: http://www.summitatsnoqualmie.com/info/winter/premieres.asp.
