Black Mountain Skiing and Winter Fun for the Family

Black Mountain is known for its family friendly atmosphere, gentle learning slopes for beginner and novice skiers, and scenic views of Mount Washington.  More advance skiers are also challenged by more traditional trails and this makes Black Mountain just about perfect for everyone.  Skiing, snowboards, lessons, and race programs are in abundance and ready to be enjoyed by skiers of all ages.  However, there is more to do at Black Mountain than just skiing!  

Winter events at Black Mountain are in abundance, but we are especially looking forward to the Winterfest and Winter Wildquack Duck Race on January 16th.  So what is this all about?  It is all about fun!  First, they have a step, icy luge track and spend days making sure that it is as icy as it can be.  Spectators can buy a duck, a heat of ducks, or as many ducks as they desire!  The more ducks you buy, the better your odds are.  Consider it getting your ducks in a row.  Then the race begins!  The duck quacks and hundreds of ducks are released at once in a made dash towards the finish line.  The first 10 ducks of each 100 ducks makes it to the finals.  Winners get ready, as you will take home 30% of the ticket sales up to $1,000 and over 50 prizes will be awarded to participants.  In addition to the race, activities will include pony rides, snow and ice sculpting contents, skiing with the Wild Quack Duck and an Apr├Ęs party. 

Winter events at Black Mountain are numerous and include Ride and Ski Weekend Tour, College Break Winter Fest, Shovel Handle Pub Race, and oh yes...chairlift speed dating!  I think that you are getting the hang of it, as Black Mountain Inn is all about fun!  To make it a little easier, when you stay at the Old Field House Inn you will also be able to purchase your ski tickets at a 50% discount.  Here's to winter fun!
