Favorite Ski Songs

Smugglers’ Notch

Ron Carter, Operations Manager for the Entertainment Team

Favorite Song: I choose the music based on the mood I’m in, which then often determines where I’ll ski. How about Motley Crue’s “Kickstart My Heart” for a bomber run down Rumrunner.

Best Deal: So many to choose from.

PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT: Ron, from Smuggs, did point out that for safety’s sake, you want to be aware of what’s happening on the hill, so it’s best not to have the volume blasting as you listen to music while skiing or riding, or, you might consider coming down the mountain with only one earpiece in so that you can hear what’s happening around you.

    Hey Heather;…
    Pete here !…
    Thanks for mentioning my song “COME ON SNOW”. ….
    Let’s hope there’s a few more snowfalls this March, and maybe one or two in early April. I would love to have this song on every Snow Lover’s lips next fall, in anticipation of a great winter of SnowSports and general winter fun. ….
    For anyone who’d like to hear the song, visit … it’s there.
    ….. And it’s not only available from, but from iTunes and GroupieTunes as well. Info about that is on the MySpace page. ….
    Enjoy the rest of the snow season, and have a GREAT spring and summer. …..
    Take care and keep smiling … good for the soul ! …..

    Musically Your Friend,
    Pete Dowan {:-)

    Pete’s song is really fun and uplifting (for snow lovers)! Worth checking out.

    The James Bond theme song is a great ski scene, but you know there is an old Bond movie with a chase scene on skis. My skiing friends in college observed that it is always the third skiing villain that skis off a cliff, gets shot, collides with a tree, etc. So we’d compete NOT to be the third man as we skied down the trail. By the way, the third man principle applies to other chase scenes in other cheesy Bond movies.
