It’s going to be a great Martin Luther King Jr. Holiday Weekend here at Alpine Meadows, with tons of snow (almost 13 feet at the top!) and warm, spring-like weather.
The first stop you’re going to want to make is at Estelle Sports, where ski and snowboard jackets and pants (excluding fleeces and base layers) are 20 percent off for the holiday weekend! (January 14-17).
Then on Saturday from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. you can test-drive the latest alpine touring and telemark gear, free of charge, from brands like Black Diamond, Dynafit, K2, Garmont, Scarpa, G3, Rotefella and Ski Trab at the Alpenglow Demo Day.
If that’s not enough, THE party of the weekend will be at Alpine Meadows’ famous Ice Bar, located at the base of the Sherwood Chair. The sun-drenched hot spot features cold beverages and barbecued bratwurst – and the party adds a hula-hoop contest, music from the one-and-only band wagon, a snow sculpture contest, and the inevitable snowball fights that are par for the course.
Drink specials at the Ice Bar Kick Off Party include the Naughty Toddy – ($5 Hot Toddy – Ice Bar Style), and Anderson Valley Boont Amber Ale, also going for $5.
So come on up and enjoy the great snow, beautiful weather, fantastic events, and the long weekend!
