We kicked it off during our 50th season, but it’s so much fun, we’ve decided to make it an annual holiday event!

The Light Up the Night lineup features a slopeside fireworks show, torchlight parade, pray for snow bonfire, and a sit-down dinner on the third floor. Smoky’s Bar & Grill will also be open late.

The festivities and fireworks are free, and there will be plenty of standing room to watch the light show in the base area and on outdoor balconies.

Feel free to bring a lawn chair if you’d like to relax during the light show and please dress for winter mountain weather conditions! [Read more...]

A two-day celebration of ski culture.

What is it about skiing and riding that brings so many people together? How about: friends, gear, groovy ski movies, and most importantly… Beer!

Join us for a new kind of winter carnival event with the all-new Beer & Gear Festival.

Day 1 (Saturday) – Ignite Your Passion

Day 1 starts with a gear demos from our great local shops. Check out the latest technology with FREE demos (for a run or two) from Gravity Sports and Hometown Sports. A Beer Garden featuring the liquid delights of Salmon River Brewery will be on tap from noon – 4 pm.

We’ll wrap up Day 1 on the third floor as we host Winter Wildland Alliance’s Backcountry Film Festival. (Admission is FREE. Doors open at 5 pm, film starts at 6pm). The SideStash Cafe will be open late serving draft beer, wine, sodas, soups and sandwiches. The festival features 90 minutes of independent ski films with an intermission mid-way. Winter Wildland Alliance will host a raffle at intermission. Funds raised stay in the local community to support like-minded, human-powered recreation efforts and to raise awareness of winter management issues, avalanche training/safety and winter education programs.

This year’s program includes seven films:

  • Winner of the Best of the Backcountry award, Skiing the Void from Sweetgrass Productions is a reflection on taking chances during their two-year odyssey in the Andes.
  • A festival cut of Further, from Teton Gravity Research, brings the return of Jeremy Jones and friends to push the limits of their mountain experience under their own power.
  • Luc Mehl, winner of the Hans Sari Scholarship and winner of this year’s Best Grassroots Film, chronicles an epic trip across the wild in Alaska Wilderness Classic.
  •  A Story of Trust is a call for climate recovery from a nine-year-old activist and the winner of this year’s Best Environmental Film.
  • Denali Experiment is a look at a different type of expedition film from Camp4Collective.
  • From Switchback Entertainment comes Freedom Chair, an athlete’s journey back to the slopes and his love of winter.

We invite you to watch a trailer here.

Local backcountry, avalanche, and gear experts from Payette Powder Guides, Ullr Skis, Gravity Sports and Brundage Mountain SnowCat Adventures will be on hand to answer questions about safely exploring the backcountry in our area.

Facial Massage Combo:

This pampering experience leaves your face radiantly glowing and your body feeling relaxed yet revitalized. A gentle facial cleansing and nutritive mask is just the beginning. While your face absorbs the rich anti-oxidents from the mask, our skilled therapist proceeds with a full body massage or if you prefer, a hand, foot, neck and shoulder massage. There are no extractions during this treatment so you look stunning for whatever is next.

Salt Glow and Aromatherapy Massage Combo:

Energize your skin while improving its appearance. Our Salt Glow gives a deep exfoliation and is complemented with an application of hydrating lotion scented with your choice of aromatherapy. Roll that decadence right into a full body aromatherapy massage for extreme rejuvenation. The powerful effects of essential oils, synergistically combined with a full body massage elicits relaxation, eliminates toxins and renews energy.

The drawing is free to enter, but you must be present to win, so plan on joining us for this apres ski celebration!
