Thursday 3/16 Forecast

Spring has finally sprung! As the daylight hours get longer and the flowers begin to dust off their winter coats in the valley, spring conditions are also present on the mountain. Sharp edges are key today as firm and fast surface conditions exist, both on and off-piste, due to the freeze thaw effect of fluctuating temps in the last 24 hours.  Expect sunshine all day so the solar affect and rising temps should help soften up the slopes by the afternoon, chase the sunny aspects for the best skiing and riding. Winds will decrease to a mild breeze in the afternoon. Temps are predicted to level out in the next 24 hours with snow showers likely to fall tomorrow. The bluebird views are spectacular,  which reminds us that no matter what, a day on the mountain is a day well spent! See you out there, -Skier Amy

Friday 3/10 Forecast

After yesterday’s epic powder day the sun has decided to show up and shine on the party that is March Madness! We’ve received another 4” of new snow overnight, making a total of 14” in the last 48 hours. Strong winds at the summit and warm temps have affected the integrity of the snow, so be mindful of variable surface conditions. The snow has a denser consistency than our typically dry and fluffy pow and a thin grainy top crust layer exist at lower altitudes. Groomers are fast and firm today and soften up as you descend toward the base area. Due to strong winds today we will be operating Chair 4 instead of Chair 2 and expect balmy temps to continue throughout the day.  All in all, a day on the slopes is always a day well spent! See you out there, -Skier Amy
