stopping Blue Mountain Resort from offering outdoor adventure both on and off the slopes! The Resort is releasing
some of the best discounts of the year all week in addition to several other events and outdoor adventure.
Even though temperatures are rising, there is still a lot of snow left on the trails at Blue Mountain Resort and the
conditions make for some great skiing and snowboarding. To celebrate spring skiing, the Resort is kicking off their
Mercury Rising Event next week! Lift tickets will be discounted to reflect the forecasted temperature. Every evening at
10pm, guests can tune in to WFMZ’s news broadcast and visit www.skibluemt.com for the next day’s discounts.

Depending on the forecasted temperatures, discounts will be as follows:
 Temperatures in the 30’s = 30% off lift tickets
 Temperatures in the 40’s = 40% off lift tickets
 Temperatures in the 50’s = 50% off lit tickets
