Hands down, 2012-13 has been one heck of a comeback season. Sure the temperatures have been erratic, we've had more than our share of the "r" word, but overall, the snowfall totals have come back strong and in some places set new all-time highs. After last season, we earned it and resorts like Snowshoe Mountain Resort, are celebrating the snow success with an extended spring season.

Thanks to early snowfall in October 2012, the West Virginia resort was able to enjoy their earliest opening date in a decade – kicking the season off to a great start. Excellent snow conditions have persisted thoroughout the season and now, in the final weeks of 2012-13, the resort is proud to announce their last day of the season will be March 31, 2013.

The resort’s Unlimited Pass is available for $249 through March 31 ($299 after that date). Within the first 10 days on sale, pass sales have already exceeded all of the season passes sold the previous two years combined. 

"Conditions are great, the snow continues to fall, and the price is right, so people want to get their pass now, enjoy a great March of skiing and riding, and then be set for next year," says Snowshoe's president Frank DeBerry.

Along with great conditions for spring skiers and riders, the final weeks of the season hold a busy calendar or events and live music, sure to make the springtime celebration unforgettable both on and off snow.
