Pre-Season Update

The Mission Ridge Snowmaking crew is back at it again building those nice big piles of snow! The last 36 hours have seen the return of good snowmaking temps and not just near the Base Area, but from top to bottom has the inversion has lifted. The 7-10 day forecast is looking promising as temps are supposed to continue to drop as the week progresses and there are good chances of snow Tuesday through Wednesday night. We know the big question on everyone's mind is when is opening day?! Opening day is still conditions dependent and the crews across the mountain are working hard to make first chair a reality as soon as possible. We are excited to get the season kicked off and know you are too! we are hopeful that the forecast snow pans out and that temps remain cold, the wind light, and the stoke high! Hang in there we are almost there and look forward to seeing you on the mountain soon to kick off the season! -Tony

Snowmaking Is Underway

The countdown has ended and snowmaking is officially underway! November 1st is probably my favorite day of the year as the guns are fired up and snowmaking operations start on the mountain. It might seem a little strange but it is so exciting to see a cloud of moisture hanging over the base area as you round the final curve to the parking lot. The roar of the guns, the white piles (called snowmaking whales)  slowly getting bigger, and a general excitement in the air all combine for an exciting start to the season. Temps early in the week were cold and ideal for snowmaking. Things have warmed up a bit as Halloween turned into the first of November, but the Snowmaking crew has been able to get some decent production near the Base Area.  Temperatures are currently inverted with warmer temps at the top of the mountain and the coldest temps near the Base Area. The forecast cals for overnight temperatures to begin to drop at the beginning of next week so hopefully we will see guns running in the Upper Basin soon! See you on the mountain soon! -Tony
