Saturday 2/24 Forecast

10am Update:The clouds are beginning to clear, revealing some amazing views from the Summit. Great visibility and several inches of snow are combining to make for great skiing all over the mountain. Get on out there and join in on the fun! The calendar says March, but winter is still here, bringing even more snowfall this morning to add to our total for the week! The skiing has been soft and fun this week and we're expecting that to continue today. In the LibTech 100Laps Park, we'll be hosting the Tell A Friend Tour and King of the Rope competition. Get in on the fun to find out who will wear the crown when the clouds clear this afternoon. -Kai

Friday 3/23 Forecast

10am Update: Powder Day! Several inches of blower pow on top of the dense snow from yesterday is skiing fantastic on the upper mountain. It's cold out there, so be sure to layer appropriately. There's plenty of terrain and it continues to snow, so if you get the chance to come up for the afternoon, I suggest you take it! We have received 3" of new snow this morning since 6am and it continues to snow fluffy flakes that are accumulating fast. Combined with 3" of new snow yesterday, this should make for some really great turns today. Let it snow! -Kai

Thursday 3/22 Forecast

9:30am Update: Visibility has steadily deteriorated since 8am. Please be cautious and try to ski near the trees to avoid falling due to vertigo. The new snow above Midway is sticking to the old snow surface and is smooth and fun! Ungroomed areas on and below Lower Tumwater is considerably stickier, so be aware of that transition as you make your way back to the lift and remember to not ski beyond your field of vision. The great thing about low-vis days is that it creates a whole new world out of runs we've been skiing all season and makes them exciting and challenging in a different way. Have fun! 2 inches of new snow overnight at Midway and we're expecting snow to continue off and on this morning. Clouds have settled in causing difficult visibility, primarily on the lower mountain at this time. Judging by the warm and wet snow in the base area, I'm expecting 2 inches of dense creamy snow on the upper mountain, which should make for some smooth fun turns. It should be a great day of storm skiing! -Kai

Sunday 3/18 Forecast

10am Update:The cold, clear night last night was very good to us and as a result, the leftover powder from yesterday on shaded aspects is as good or better than yesterday. On the other hand, surface conditions in direct sunlight are very firm, but expect to find some excellent spring corn as the sun works it's magic this morning. Have a great day soaking up some rays and ripping turns! It's shaping up to be another amazing day on the mountain. We're expecting clear skies and comfortable temperatures for cruisin' the corduroy and chasing down all those leftover powder stashes! -Kai

Saturday 3/17 Forecast

10am Update: We found the pot of white-gold at the end of the rainbow and it's 5" of fresh snow!  5" of new snow overnight! March just keeps on delivering with new snowfall and beautiful blue skies. The skiing has been excellent this week and we're taking that theme with us right in to the weekend. We have extended operating hours today on chairs 1 & 4, which will run until 6pm for the Dummy Downhill. After the dummy action, join us in the Hampton Lodge for live music, featuring Cosmic Serenity. -Kai

Friday 3/16 Forecast

9:45am Update: The clouds have settled in on the upper mountain, resulting in challenging visibility above Midway. However, the groomers are skiing great and off-piste, the snow is in good shape from yesterday, light and cold with a firm edgeable base underneath. Hopefully the conditions will work in our favor and these clouds will drop a little snow on the slopes as they make their way up and out of the area.  We're expecting another beautiful sunny day on the mountain. The groomed runs are excellent and there are still fresh tracks to be found off-piste, so get on up to the Ridge for a run in the sun! -Kai

snowboarder on a bluebird powder day

Thursday 3/15 Forecast

9:45am Update: Wow, fantastic skiing and riding on the Hill today! Bluebird conditions and the reported "inch" is skiing like 2-3 on top of a firm, but not icy, base. The groomed surfaces are dialed and tons of fun as well. Whatever your preference, today should be awesome! 6am Report: 1 inch of new snow in the past 48 hours and we're expecting sunny skies and stellar views at the Ridge today. Temperatures have been spring-like for the last few days, but it will remain cooler today, so expect fast and smooth groomers combined with variable conditions off piste under the new snow. I can't wait to get back out on the hill and carve it up! -Kai
