Cleveland snowsports enthusiasts should take note—[R69R, Boston Mills] is holding its Open House Oct. 14-16, and it is the best time to purchase a season pass, lessons and specialty programs for the 2011/2012 season. Savings of up to $100 per pass are available.


An adult pass is $339 and a junior/youth (ages seven-12) pass is $289. On Oct. 17 both passes go up by $100. Pick-A-Day passes for adults (13+) will be $239 at the open house and a junior Pick-A-Day (ages eight-12) pass is $219. Both go up $50 on Oct. 18.


Open House hours are 10 a.m.-8 p.m. on Friday and 10 a.m-6 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday. 


There will be information on Women's Snow Discovery, race programs, Freestyle Bootcamp and all of BMBW's youth lesson programs. The Women's Discovery six-week program is $309 at the open house, which includes lessons, lift tickets and equipment rentals. The cost is $339 after the open house. 


The sixth annual October Steez Rail Jam takes place on Saturday. The event is suitable for all ages with features for every freestyle talent level. It's a preseason chance to hit the slopes. Come out, throw down and enjoy. The event is held on ice shavings.


The Buckeye Sports Center will be hosting a huge “blowout” sale on gear and apparel, and the BMBW Ski Patrol Swap Tent will have used equipment for sale. If you're looking for new gear—this is the time to sell your old equipment. 


The ski area, which also includes Brandywine, will be hosting chairlift rides over the weekend so that you can enjoy the colorful Ohio fall foliage from the top of the ski hill. However, you are only able to ride up and must walk down— a good opportunity to get those ski legs in shape.
