What’s that you say? It’s going to be 80 degrees this weekend? Well, spring is upon us but there is still SNOW up in the mountains! So lets take in one last breath of Winter Wonder and head up to Ski Apache for some sledding and tubing! As always, MINI Rallies are open to all MINI and Classic Mini Owners!
The final stretch of the drive should be full of “twisties” and the scenery will be awesome. The roads are clear but the there’s just enough snow left to have some end of the season winter fun. (And it washes off your car way easier than the sticky gypsum from white sands!)
Aside from the regular snow activities, Ski Apache will be hosting a “Shamrock Relay” in celebration of St. Patrick’s Day. Teams of two will compete against each other in a 3-legged race, taco eating and a tandem dash to the finish line. (Tacos and dashing? Oh Man!) This event starts at noon and prizes given out at 3. FREE if you’re interested.
Also if you get hungry, you can pack a lunch or there are a large variety of restaurants to choose from as well!
