Miracle March is upon us ladies and gents! Snow is in the forecast for the week ahead, and it will start falling tomorrow! There’s also a BIG STORM brewing next week, with the potential to drop FEET of fresh powdery deliciousness at Sierra! There are so many different rituals we use to inspire the snow gods to deliver all the goods! In case you aren’t hip to these superstitions, it is my duty as Sierra’s Snow Reporter to fill you in so we can have plenty of days like this!
1. Wash Your Car
After a storm, cars can get pretty dirty around Lake Tahoe. Many people believe as soon as you wash your car, another big storm will roll in to dirty it right back up! I think it’s time for EVERYONE to cruise on over to the car wash and inspire the snow gods.
2. Wear Your PJ’s Inside Out
Many people swear by this snow-day ritual. The idea is to confuse the snow gods by wearing your pj’s inside out and the result is a down-pour of big n’ fluffy snowflakes! At the very least, this ritual gives you a fun night in with the family!
3. Break it Down With Your Best Snow Dance
Go outside and bust a move with a snow dance to motivate the snow gods! The more you dance, the more snow they will bring to Sierra and don’t forget to chant, “Let it snow! Let it snow! Let it snow!”
4. Set a TON of new rails on the Mountain
Our Terrain Park Crew has been working hard all week to premiere our Signature Park on Bashful and they continue to set-up more rails & boxes for you to enjoy. The more rails they place, the more snow the gods will drop – but we don’t mind, its job security for the crew and more fun for all of you!
5. Put Your Rally Cap On
The easiest snow day ritual to take part in is to wear your beanie or hat inside out! This lets the snow gods know that you are ready to rally, so bring on the snow!!
Even if you don’t believe in superstitions, get out there are do all of these rituals just in case! Start praying this storm brings us FEET of fresh snow to play in and gear up for all the super fun POW DAYS ahead of us!
