Snow has been the word in Deadwood the past couple of weeks — but not because it’s something we aren’t used to — more so because of the amount of snow, and the timing. Early November has, in the past, brought some heavy snow to the area, but it’s always somewhat of a shock. In October, fall gets into swing, nights get cooler, leaves change; then November, weather gets a bit cooler as Mother Nature sets us up for winter. But sometimes, BOOM, winter is thrown upon us.
But anyway, those of us living in the northern Black Hills know it snowed and our backs are finally recovering. And judging by our Webcam hits, there are thousands of others out there that know too, only they just had to click to see, not shovel! But the main story here is what we can do in the snow…
Snowmobiles have started to filter into the area … while state trails don’t open until December, tracks on private land are plentiful and the state trail folks are gearing up their grooming equipment. Ski resorts are making final preparations for the season — Mystic Miner at Deer Mountain and Terry Peak will both open around Thanksgiving.
If you’re looking for a top winter vacation destination, think Deadwood. Rooms in town are as low as $39 — and there are a number of packages available for ski and stay packages — as well as some for snowmobiling, including rental.
Gas prices are the lowest they’ve been in a while, snowy conditions look to stay and there are some great meal and gaming promotions going on throughout town — we’re ready for you!
See you soon.
