Saint Paddy’s Day Party & Live Music in the Upper Lot Pub
A Smoky’s St. Patrick’s Day! Come celebrate St. Paddy’s Day with us at the mountain!
Start the day with a Treasure Hunt, try your hand at Cabbage Bowling (a future Olympic sport?) then enjoy Corned Beef and Cabbage or Guinness Brats with Irish French Fries for lunch before settling in for live music in the Upper Lot.
Lucky Seven Treasure Hunt
Look for the seven Shamrocks located around the mountain and turn them into Guest Services for a ‘pot of gold’/bag of prizes.
3rd Annual Cabbage Bowling Tournament
This is exactly what you think it is. Chuck a cabbage at a set of ‘pins’ (Guinness cans) and win fun prizes. Tourney starts at 3:00 pm on the deck on the ‘Main Street’ side of Smoky’s.
As part of the St. Patty’s Day celebration we have live music from Pine Whiskey Yell Band 2-5 pm in the Upper Lot.
Born out of a desperate need for craft beer, deep powder, plastic jug moonshine, fast-moving rivers, and a deep-seated fear that artificial intelligence will ruin hard-driving bluegrass… High Pine Whiskey Yell came together as a band in 2018. This four-piece group of modern-day rounders focuses on telling true stories.
Bringing experience from a multitude of projects, this Idaho string band is sure to win you over with its take on bluegrass and the Americana tradition. Although newly formed, its members have played in numerous bands and projects throughout the years incorporating those experiences into Idaho storytelling that is High Pine Whiskey Yell.
Scotty Tyler’s fiddling playing is aggressive enough to land an Idaho brown trout, yet soothing enough pacify a wookie in a festival hammock. Tyler Schmidt’s wielding of the mandolin is nothing short of broadsword-esque and captures the true essence of the mandolin’s spirit animal (jaguar-rattlesnake). Brian Carrington guitar flat-picking could woo even the most elusive of sasquatches out of the woods. And Chad Lamer’s upright bass playing… well let’s just say they sometimes give him water, beer, and let him ride inside the truck.
