With the cardboard box sled races held last weekend at Mystic Miner (a GREAT time, something I suggest!), that marked the close of Mystic’s runs (formerly Deer Mountain). Terry Peak Ski Area remains open until Sunday, April 3. So there’s still a few days to get a few more turns in!

But looking ahead to next year, Mystic Miner is having their annual dynamite ski season pass sale going on now through April 7 – what’s the dynamite sale you ask? For $149, you can ski all year long!!! $149 for the entire ski season. Not a bad deal! Check out for more info.

Now let’s bring on the spring!

Haileo Deadwood Fans! The luck of the Irish is going to be in Historic Deadwood on March 17 & 19. It is time to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day with parades and a pub crawl. On Thursday Deadwood will kick-off St. Paddy’s day with its annual parade. Open container will be allowed between the hours of 5-10 pm. Remember to wear your green or else you will get pinched.

Saturday will be full of Irish fun! Pub Crawl and Poker Run Registration will start at 11 am at the Franklin Hotel.

If you can’t find anything green to wear on St. Paddy’s day the Silverado and ME (Deadwood Chamber of Commerce) are selling shirts. The shirts are of course green and say Top Five things I learned on St. Patrick’s Day in Deadwood. To learn what the shirts say they are $12 each. The shirts are benefitting the new Northern Hills Alliance daycare center here in Deadwood.

If you are hungry for some good Irish stew the Deadwood VFW will be hosting an Irish stew, bake sale, and silent auction on Thursday from 4:30-6:30 pm. Tickets for the Irish stew and Biscuit Dinner are $5 per person and all proceeds will go to local community projects.

Hello Deadwood fans! I survived my first event with the Deadwood Chamber of Commerce. If you didn’t come to Mardi Gras well that was your bad, because it was an amazing time. Historic Deadwood was packed full of people and fun. Friday night started off with the People’s Parade where we marched down Main Street Deadwood. After the parade we went to the Buffalo and crowned our King and Queen of Mardi Gras. Congratulations to Misty and Corbin Bateman of Sheridan, Wyo who won via Facebook votes. The royalty helped choose the winners of the costume contest where there was over $500 in cash and prizes.

Saturday was packed full of fun for everyone. If you have read my blog before you know that I was overly excited for the Cajun cook-off. There were 5 different places in Deadwood that participated in the cook –off. A congratulations needs to go out to Deadwood’s Four Aces for taking first place in the Mardi Gras Cajun cook-off. Their food was excellent and I enjoyed it very much! Not to forget about the cake decorating contest that was held at Deadwood’s Bullock. The cakes were amazing and I don’t understand how someone can make a cake look like it is a piece of art work. Wow is all I have to say! Saturday night was probably the funniest time I have had in Deadwood. A parade of lights ran up Historic Main Street here in Deadwood. Prizes were given out to a variety of different floats. Best overall went to Deadwood’s Saloon #10, which was a very large Vikings ship. Mayor’s Choice went to a large float that had Medusa’s head on it. There was also a float that had Towlie and Kenny (South Park characters) fishin in the dark.

The fun never ends here in Deadwood and the next event is just around the corner with the St. Patrick’s Day celebration. It will be two days full of Irish fun. Thursday March 17 open container will be from 5-10 pm. There will also be the Annual St. Patrick’s day parade starting at 5 pm. We will carry the fun over to Saturday March 19 for the Annual Pub Crawl. Ten different clans will take over Main Street Deadwood. Registration starts at 11 am in Deadwood’s Franklin Hotel and the crawl will start at 2 pm. Open container will start at 2 pm so the clans will be able to crawl safely. We can’t have a Deadwood festivity without another parade on Saturday starting at 7 pm. The pub crawls final location will be at the Franklin Hotel where everyone will meet up at 8 pm.

If you missed Mardi Gras don’t kick yourself to hard, because you will have other chances to have an amazing time here in Deadwood. First off you can become Irish with the St. Patrick’s Day celebration starts on March 17. If you can’t make it on Thursday you still be Irish on Saturday March 19. Hope to see everyone there!
