If you’re a skier or snowboarder, chances are you also excel at après ski. I myself am a Double Black Diamond après, and have the boozy fireside tales to prove it. On Friday, Whitefish Mountain Resort in Montana came to Calgary to introduce a new excuse to party in the name of winter sport: Avant Ski. In case the Ski the Fish stickers don’t give it away, that’s Riley Polumbus, PR person extraordinaire from Big Mountain, as many people still call the ski hill in northern Montana. There’s limited time left to Avant Ski, since the official start to the Whitefish Resort season is coming up fast — December 6. Riley managed to work some sweet PR nothings in between the wine and the nibbles, which turned out to be somethings, like this super deal on Sunday-Thursday lodging and lift ticket: $84 per person, all season at Whitefish.
Blue Besos went to Whitefish for opening weekend last year… here’s a look back at the adventure.
