DOVER- There are a variety of events at Mount Snow this weekend to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day and the abundant snowfall the area has received.

Just as every year, there are special pricing lift tickets for Mount Snow. Tickets for Friday, March 16, start at $29 but the price will increase as quantities sell out. Tickets must be purchased in advance online at Tickets purchased at Mount Snow on Friday will be $49.

On Friday thousands of the most fervent (and verdant) fans descend on the mountain to party on Cuzzins deck, ski in costume, and rock out to live Irish music outdoors. There will be eggs and kegs in the morning, the annual Pot O’ Gold scavenger hunt for a season pass, lift ticket deals, and more.

Stop by Mount Snow Sports at The Grand Summit for the wine and cheese prize party on Friday. Join in for some wine and cheese and a chance to win amazing retail prizes.

Top the night off at the Snow Barn with the Bud Light Shamrock Fest featuring Head for the Hills with Pinedrop on Friday. Doors open at 8 pm, the show starts around 9 pm. Must be 21-plus. Tickets will be $15 online and $20 at the door if still available.

On Saturday, March 17, head over to Carinthia for the Carinthia Open Mega Plaza (COMP). Carinthia’s acclaimed park builders constructed a one-of-a-kind, plaza-style setup that will be loaded with rails, boxes, and a whole arsenal of unique features found nowhere else. Athletes will need to choose their line carefully so they can go big, get technical, and flex their style to walk away with a piece of the $6,500 purse for pros or gear from event sponsors for the ams in this jam-style format competition. The plaza will be located near the base area of Carinthia, easily accessible to spectators. The entry fee is $50 online or $65 onsite. Participants must register by 11:59 pm Thursday in order to get the online discount. Registration fee includes a one-day lift ticket for March 17 and entry into the competition. There is a maximum of 120 competitors.

Must be 21-plus. Tickets will be $20 online, and $25 at the door if still available. Online ticket sales will end at 11:59 pm March 16.
