Powder Hound Bursts Into Flames

Well over 1,000 people were on hand to officially welcome the pending winter season by praying for snow and sacrificing a 20 foot powder hound at the Big Sky Brewing Company in Missoula, MT on Friday, October 16th.

Many thanks to Todd, Trinda and the dozens of volunteers that organized and rallied to make the Burning Dog Festival a fantastic event and raise money for avalanche education and forecasting in West Central Montana. By the way, what was that crazy table game and which team won?
Powder dog ignites and then glows to the delight of the large crowd.








Silver Mountain Resort was proud to be an event sponsor and is looking forward to the pending snow that will surely come as a result of this annual ritual. I can see the clouds starting to form already!

Silver Mountain Summer Wrap Up

Okay, I know I have been bad about blogging this summer. With all the fun I've been having (playing tennis, golfing, water skiing, Village concerts, surfing, hiking, mountain biking, fly fishing, working, Brewsfest, moving, fairs, rodeos, boating, flying, etc.), I did not carve out any time to write about it.

I will try to pick up the pace now that the summer season is over and most of the summer gear is put away. Thankfully, the summer fun never ends at Silver Rapids and we invite you to take advantage of our "back to school" offer to come splash, surf and stay.

Last weekend we celebrated Oktoberfest with a great party in the Village and the SilverRoxx downhill mountain bike races up top. One word to sum it up: epic! Many thanks to all of you who came out despite the crazy weather (it snowed on Saturday morning and was quite breezy on Sunday.)
We really appreciate the fantastic turn out and congratulate everyone who participated.

Starting next weekend and through 10/31, there will be a "haunted mine shaft" set up in the Village. There, of course, will be trick or treating around the Village and nearby neighborhood, pumpkin races in the lazy river and a whole lot more fun planned for Halloween. Noah's will feature an adult costume party and a special presentation of "Shredder" (filmed right here in the Silver Valley) so get your costumes ready!

Oh, did I mention we have a really great season pass sale in progress for the upcoming winter season. Two words: get one! Hope to see you real soon.
