What do you call beans that aren’t yours? Nacho Beans!! Bob’s Bean Bomb, a legendary, mouth-watering bean dip with a cult-like following, is making a special appearance this weekend in the form of Bean Bomb Nachos. Feast on layers of heavy tortilla chips loaded with Bob’s signature spicy Bean Bomb, melted sharp cheddar cheese, black olives, onions, tomatoes and sour cream. Noon to 3. Of course, the regular menu in the Day Lodge will still be available.

It’s time to demo some new skis! We are a Fischer Hole Ski Demo and Race center, an Atomic Race Demo Center, a Salomon Race Demo center, an Alpina Demo center, and a Rossignol Touring center. Our selection of skis, boots, poles and bindings is very strong and diverse for racing and touring, and there is no charge to try any of them. There’s no better way to find the perfect ski package than to try them first! The “Let it Snow Sale ” continues!!

Best conditions of the season! Good luck VASA racers!
