Mount Snow, Vermont (March 24, 2003) – Come soak up the sun, cruise the corduroy, bash the bumps and play in our parks & pipes because spring is here at Mount Snow. Mount Snow celebrates the day of fool’s, April 1st, with 4 lift tickets for the price of 1. With nearly 180 of natural snow on the ground, the spring skiing and riding is going strong.
