Three US Ski Areas Re-Open For 2009-10 Season ‘Last Blast’ (01-Jun-10)

USA, June 1, 2010 - Three ski areas

Three ski areas on the East and west Coasts of the US have re-opened for snow sports this weekend just for the US national Memorial Day holiday period.

On the West Coast Donner Summit and Squaw Valley ski areas re-opened due primarily to fresh snow falling last week.

On the east Coast, Stowe in Vermont took a different approach and unveiled a huge pile of snow it had stockpiled through the winter to use for one off ‘Last Trick’ Rail Jam over Memorial Day weekend. 

The giant pile of snow, formerly the resort’s halfpipe, provided the venue for Stowe’s park crew to set up the rails, boxes and jumps for one more jam session.

The event was open to all skiers, snowboarders and spectators with music provided and prizes and giveaways for participants to add to the mood.
