Snow dance trending, time to get your groove on

The snow dance is trending and we are here for it! It started at RED Mountain and took off like the wave at a sports event, rippling from one ski resort to the next.

Those are the vibes our snow seeking community is all about. It starts with sliding on snow but it’s more than that, it’s making friends on chairlifts, taking in the view from the peaks, raising a shot ski to Ullr and dancing to apres grooves. And a million other little things that elevate skiing and snowboarding beyond recreational sport to subcultural phenomenon.

So join the likes of RED, SilverStar, Mt Seymour, Sun Peaks, Revy, Panorama and Troll, and do your snow dance this week. (Read on to see a roundup of all the fun snow dances so far.)

Trust me, it will do you good.

It all started with RED Mountain posting a simple video of staff doing their snow dance... which led to this:
