It’s been snowing in Southern Idaho! Pomerelle Mountain Resort and Magic Mountain Resort are keeping ski season going with fun events, tubing hills, and more.
Pomerelle Mountain Resort typically has some of the deepest snow in the state, and even during this low-water winter it boasts a base depth of 46 inches and a top depth of 54 inches. (Bonus: It was snowing at Pomerelle and Magic Mountain at the time of this writing.)
Check out the Ladies Day Program from 9 a.m.-4 p.m. on Tuesdays during March to fine-tune your skiing — or even get started! Participating skiers and snowboarders get access to four full-day lift tickets, four 1.5-hour clinics tailored to ability, and four lunches for only $129. Current season pass holders get $10 off program cost. You can register at Pomerelle, at Idaho Water Sports in Burley, or at Claude’s Sports in Twin Falls.
On March 17, head up to the mountain to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day with all sorts of snowy shenanigans (don’t forget to wear green). A shamrock hunt begins at 9 a.m. and will feature plenty of prizes: A goody bag for a regular shamrock, a Pomerelle sweatshirt for a golden shamrock, or a gift certificate for a full-day lift pass for a silver shamrock.
Good at guessing? Take a stab at estimating how many gold pieces are in the pot during the Pot of Gold Challenge and you could win a prize. The winner will be notified at 3 p.m.
It’s still snowing up at Magic Mountain Resort! The resort’s 120 acres have 38 inches of snow. Be sure to check out the resort’s calendar before you head up to make sure you’ll be able to hit the slopes that day; the resort has been closed on some Mondays, Tuesdays, and Wednesdays during the month of February.
If skiing isn’t your style, you can still play in the powder on Magic Mountain’s tubing hill. A two-hour pass will only set you back $15 — a bargain for fun seekers!
Unfortunately, local favorite Soldier Mountain is closed until further notice, but check the website for updates — hopefully a few big storm systems will get the resort up and running again.
