Spring might seem like the time of budding flowers and cute little animals, but if you're like us you'll gladly trade those for some exciting spring snow sports, cold brews, and kickin' jams. And that's exactly what to expect at Mount Snow this spring. Mount Snow's Reggaefest, a music fest with a healthy dose of spring skiing, will soon return for another weekend of good tunes and good times.
For fans of live music, spring, sunsine and snowsports, Reggaefest is a winning combination.The annual Mount Snow reggae festival includes some excellent acts this year, including Sister Sparrow and the Dirty Birds, Midnite, and Passafire. If you go, you can also test your mettle at the Bud Light Sink or Swim, a pond-skimming competition across a 100-foot frozen pond, and the annual Duct Tape Derby - think soapbox derby, but with duct tape, cardboard sleds, and lots of snow.
There are plenty of other things to entertain you at Mount Snow, including some of the best spring skiing and snowboarding in the region. Spring also means shorter lines and less crowded slopes - if you ask Mount Snow regulars, it might just be the best time of the year to ski.
What if reggae isn't your scene? That's OK! The Mount Snow reggae festival isn't the only spring attraction on the slopes. If you're less about the music and more about the cool libations that often accompany it, you might enjoy the Winter Brewers Festival instead. Following the weekend after Reggaefest, the Mount Snow Brewers Fest features twenty breweries pouring more than 40 different beers alongside live music and that same great skiing. Attendees can order online ahead of time for a discount, or buy their tickets with a lift ticket at the window.
After you've had your fill of festivals, you'll find plenty else to do in the Mount Snow area. Look for tasty, yet inexpensive restaurants in Wilmington, or do some shopping, snowshoeing or hiking -- Mount Snow's central location means that nothing is too far away.
