Are you ready for ski season? I know we’re all enjoying the amazing fall weather, but really, it’s not too early to start gearing up for the upcoming winter. With a number of world-class ski resorts just up the hill from Nevada City (Sugar Bowl, Boreal, Royal Gorge, Northstar, Squaw Valley and Alpine Meadows) there are a lot of great opportunities to play in the snow, whether you ski, snowboard, cross-country ski or just want to go sledding. The InnSide Nevada City blog has put together a great pre-ski season giveaway package to get you excited for snow. To get the legs in shape we’ve got one spot in the upcoming South Yuba Club’s Ski Conditioning workout series, which starts the week of November 5th. We’ve also got 2 tickets to Sugar Bowl Ski Resort*, and remember if you’re going to buy a season pass this year the early season rates ends on October 31st. Mountain Recreation is offering up a $25 gift certificate and a free ski/board tuning. Their pre-season juniors rentals are currently available, get your child equipped for $99. Flowlow Gear has offered up a pair of Ridge Gloves (click here to watch a behind the scenes video on the gloves) and Snowlands Network is hosting a screening of PowderWhore’s ski film “Elevation” and we’ve got a pair of tickets to the November 12th show at Mountain Recreation (free beer by Sierra Nevada Brewing Company). So how do you win this package worth over $400? Post a comment on this blog post about your favorite memory of the snow and I’ll draw the winner on Halloween.
