No matter your preferred medium of winter recreation, March offered a little something for everyone. From fresh powder to plush corduroy, there was no shortage of new snow. March visitors made sure to transform the mountain into their own canvas – painting turns and carving edges masterful enough to give Michelangelo and Van Gogh a run for their money.

That’s a wrap on MARCH 2024!
