Mohawk offers FREE skiing this Sunday


Here’s something hard to pass up: FREE skiing and snowboarding at Mohawk Mountain in Cornwall on Sunday.

That’s right FREE. All you have to do is show up, go to lift ticket window and get a free pass. The free offer is just for FREE lift tickets, not rental equipment.

It’s Mohawk’s way of thanking people for a great ski/snowboard season as it calls it quits for 2013-14.

“Traditionally, we celebrate our fantastic season by saying THANK YOU to all of our valued guests, and will offer FREE lift tickets to everyone who visits us on our last day of operations, Sunday, March 30, 2014,” it posted on its web site and Facebook page.mohawk

The customer appreciation day starts at 8:30 AM and continues through 4 PM.

I suggest you get there early to enjoy the best conditions and grab a good parking spot. As you would expect, this free day attracts a large crowd. Be warned: the dirt parking lot can be very muddy; hold off on getting the car washed.

At this point there’s a 50 percent chance of rain with temperatures in the upper 40s.

Mohawk still has a good snow base and expects to have most of its trails open this weekend.

Check out its LIVE CAM.

They could probably extend the season another week or so, but it makes sense to close when few people show up.

The Powder Ridge ski area ended its Connecticut season last weekend.

Ski Sundown is still open every day with 100 percent of its trails open.

Mount Southington will reopen Friday and this weekend, likely its last. Hmm, wonder if they will offer free skiing on Sunday too; a nice way to celebrate the end of its 50th season. No word yet; check its web site for the latest word.

Woodbury is also still hanging tough, but time is ticking away for Connecticut’s ski areas.

It’s been a wonderful ski/snowboard season in the Banana Belt of New England.

And, thanks Mohawk for one last, AND FREE, day on the ski slopes of Connecticut!
