Retro G.N.A.R.

Filed Under (Mountain Updates) by admin on 01-02-2012

So I’m a little behind the 8 ball, I only watched G.N.A.R. for the first time last week.  For those of you who haven’t seen G.N.A.R, it is a tribute to the late great Shane McConkey and the legacy he left behind.  The most important takeaway is that Shane reminded everyone that skiing was supposed to be fun.

I like to think that over the last few seasons “Saving Magic” we have had quite a bit of fun in the process.  Sometimes this fun is derived from necessity.  Magic doesn’t have a base village for shopping so when conditions are bad, we still ski.  After all, skiing two open trails wearing a fake moustache is far better than skiing thirty open trails with no moustache at all.

This weekend is Magic’s 50th anniversary retro day and après party, the Grande dame of Magic style fun. So put on your favorite retro gear and join in the fun all day and night long.   High jinks are sure to be about on the trails and in the lodge so throw on something ridiculous and see how much better you ski.
