It's Mary Jane's birthday, and the people at Winter Park have come up with plenty of ways to celebrate, making it worth your while to make the drive this weekend.
Always wanted to throw on a pair of skis and get towed around at 30 mph by a horse, but were afraid you'd take a nasty spill in the process? Check out Saturday's 2 p.m. Skijoring clinic. And in true Mary Jane fashion--a mountain known for its moguls--get tips on how to ski bumps any time during the day at the top of the Super Gauge Express lift.
After the lifts close, stick around for the live music, the drink specials, the parade and the fireworks. Just be sure to tip one back in honor of the 34-year-old.
