17" of New...Chair 2 On High Wind Hold

Chair 2 is on Wind hold due to 90mph gusts and sustained winds over 60mph. It has been an epic day for many reasons today. 17" of new snow befor 9am was an awesome suprise!. We were only forecast for 1-3". But with the snow came super dense fog and extremely high winds at the Summit. The fog  and winds delayed early morning avalanche midigation work which delayed the opening of Chair 3. But once it opened...no words. It does not look likely that Chair 2 will open today, but that just means that there will be plenty of fresh for tomorrow.

A Special Christmas Forecast

‘Twas 5am in the morning, when all through Mission Ridge’s Lodge like house Not a creature was stirring, not even a Pika (which is like a really fat mouse). The beer mugs were placed, on the bar shelves with care In hopes that fresh ale, soon would be there. The Groomers were nestled, all snug in their Snow Cats, For their hard work they deserve at least the tip of all your hats. And the Snow Makers are more than up for the task Each one undoubtedly donned in a warm winter cap, For the Ridge was just about to wake from its off hours nap. When over the radio arose such a clatter, That this snow reporter set down his coffee mug, to see what twas the matter. And what to my wondering eyes should appear, But a beautiful sun on the rise and bluebird skies drawing near. We’ll have comfy temps throughout the day, and a high near 28, And little to no wind that’ll sure make you feel great. The groomed runs are fitted with fresh corduroy pants, And Joel the groomer said he even saw Prop Man doing a midnight snow dance. While this morning there may be no new snow on the ground, The Lift Mechanics And Ops will have chairs 1,2, and 3 a runnin’ for you to make many a round. And we hope that your stockings were stuffed to the brim And know that your tummy will surely get it’s its fill, And look forward to soon seeing you on the hill. Happy Holidays to you and yours from everyone here at Mission Ridge!
