Back of Skier making a powder turn

1/30/21 Conditions Report

10 AM Update: The snow is riding good and there are still pockets of powder to be found. They weren't calling for snow until later this afternoon but it was starting to snow at the top of 3 and the visibility was moderate with flat light at the top but became clear about a 1/4 of the way down. We are expecting to be very busy today. We are currently sold out on all ticket types, lessons, and rentals. We do anticipate filling up on parking this morning. Mission Ridge Premier, Core Value, and Twilight Passes are valid and do not require reservations but we recomend Passholders consider coming up in the afternoon or for Night Skiing tonight. Thanks to all the hard work by the Mountain Ops crews, all Chair 2 terrain is now open! Hiking/uphill access will be allowed from the top of Johnson's to access the top of Chair 2 and the Ridgeline. It is important that everyone takes it easy out there as unmarked/marked obstacles do exist, and coverage is variable. Chairs 1, 3, 4, the Pika Peak Rope Tow, and the 100LAPS Rope Tow are scheduled for operation from 9 am to 4 pm today with Chair 1, Chair 4, the Pika Peak Rope Tow, and the 100LAPS Rope Tow Scheduled for operation during Night Skiing from 4 pm - 9 pm. Please make sure to dress appropriately for the conditions and remember that we are asking that everyone use their car as their base camp as there is no inside seating at this time and capacity restrictions are in place for all inside spaces.

1/29/21 Conditions Report

10 am Update - Thanks to all the hard work by the Mountain Ops crews, all Chair 2 terrain is now open! Hiking/uphill access will be allowed from the top of Johnson's to access the top of Chair 2 and the Ridgeline. It is important that everyone takes it easy out there as unmarked/marked obstacles do exist, and coverage is variable. Early Morning Update - The cats have been hard at work while we slept getting those groomers dialed. Groomed runs will be soft, sweet and feeling like butter! You can still get lucky off-piste [non-groomed] and find some stashes from this weeks storm. Off-piste has filled in nicely throughout this past week, but as always use those first runs as a scouting mission to send it, as conditions vary off the groomed runs. Chairs 1, 3, 4, the Pika Peak Rope Tow, and the 100LAPS Rope Tow are scheduled for operation from 9 am to 4 pm today with Chair 1, Chair 4, the Pika Peak Rope Tow, and the 100LAPS Rope Tow Scheduled for operation during Night Skiing from 4 pm - 9 pm.

10 AM Update Wow, it's been another good morning! The 6" of new overnight made for some great turns this morning and the less steep off-piste was fun to play around in. This snowfall should set up for a great day of turns continuing into our night session. Be cautious on the steeper off-piste as those conditions are a lot more variable. The train to POW town rolls on. 12" in the last 48 hours have softened things up, there are still plenty of fresh lines to be had. 4" overnight will make for some excellent groomed runs and some refills around the mountain. Off-piste [non-groomed] will continue to be variable so take it slow on your first couple laps to get a feel for the snow beneath your feet. Chairs 1, 3, 4, the Pika Peak Rope Tow, and the 100LAPS Rope Tow are scheduled for operation from 9 am to 4 pm today with Chair 1, Chair 4, the Pika Peak Rope Tow, and the 100LAPS Rope Tow Scheduled for operation during Night Skiing from 4 pm - 9 pm.

1/27/21 Conditions Report

10 AM Update: Pow Pow Pow! Well, the stakes are saying 8", but it's riding a lot deeper than that in spots on the hill. Be cautious going off-piste on the steeper runs as you can get down to the firmer stuff pretty quick. Look for the off-piste to become more variable as the day goes on. The more adventurous should be able to find pow pockets throughout the day. We’ve received 8” of that beautiful dry, light, Mission Ridge blower pow overnight, so get ready for some fresh powder turns today! Just a reminder that off piste conditions have been very firm over the last week and because this powder is so light, look for off piste conditions to be variable. Take it easy your first couple of runs off piste to get a feel for the conditions. Forecast - Snow before 11am, then a chance of snow after 5pm. High near 28. Light and variable wind becoming southeast around 5 mph in the afternoon. Chance of precipitation is 100%. Total daytime snow accumulation of 1 to 3 inches possible. Chairs 1, 3, 4, the Pika Peak Rope Tow, and the 100LAPS Rope Tow are scheduled for operation from 9 am to 4 pm today with Chair 1, Chair 4, the Pika Peak Rope Tow, and the 100LAPS Rope Tow Scheduled for operation during Night Skiing from 4 pm - 9 pm.

1/26/21 Conditions Report

The next winter storm has arrived with snow likely today and a nice accumulation forecast for this evening with 4” to 8” of new snow possible over the next 24 hours. Groomed conditions really don’t get much better than they were yesterday morning and we are looking forward to more of the same today. Look for surface conditions to become more variable over the course of the day depending on new snowfall. It will be cold today, especially at the top of Chair 3 so make sure to layer up. For the moment, off-piste (non-groomed) conditions remain firm and variable but look to be refreshed over the next day or so. A 40 percent chance of snow. Cloudy, with a steady temperature around 13. Wind chill values as low as -1. Southeast wind 6 to 9 mph. Total daytime snow accumulation of less than a half inch possible. Chairs 1, 3, 4, the Pika Peak Rope Tow, and the 100LAPS Rope Tow are scheduled for operation from 9 am to 4 pm today.

1/25/21 Conditions Report

We’ve picked up a trace of new snow overnight and there is more on the way this week. The sun will reemerge today while snow-filled clouds gather in the distance. The best chance of new snow accumulation is Tuesday night/Wednesday this week. For today, we’re looking forward to some great groomed conditions under partly sunny skies. It will be on the cooler side with temps forecast for the low to mid-twenties. Off-piste (non-groomed) conditions continue to be firm and variable but that should be changing this week. Stick to the cords and let rip your boards. Partly sunny, with a high near 21. West wind 5 to 7 mph. Chairs 1, 3, 4, the Pika Peak Rope Tow, and the 100LAPS Rope Tow are scheduled for operation from 9 am to 4 pm today.

Skiers skiing under chair lift

1/24/21 Conditions Report

The weather is changing and we will see our first touch of new snow today on the front edge of a fresh storm. Chances of snow increase as we approach mid-week with the highest likelihood of accumulation Wednesday and Thursday. Surface conditions will continue to be outstanding on the groomed runs this morning with things becoming more variable throughout the course of the day depending on snowfall. We still recommend sticking to groomed trails for the most enjoyable conditions as off-piste (non-groomed) areas are still very firm and variable. In summary, we will be trading out the sunshine for snowfall today but the smiles will be sticking around indefinitely. Snow likely, mainly between 7am and 4pm. Cloudy, with a high near 20. West wind around 7 mph becoming south in the afternoon. Chance of precipitation is 70%. Total daytime snow accumulation of less than one inch possible.  Chairs 1, 3, 4, the Pika Peak Rope Tow, and the 100LAPS Rope Tow are scheduled for operation from 9 am to 4 pm today. Please make sure to dress appropriately for the conditions and remember that we are asking that everyone use their car as their base camp as there is no inside seating at this time and capacity restrictions are in place for all inside spaces.

two skiers making turns

1/23/21 Conditions Report

10 AM Update: Well, it feels like the last few days we've been stuck on repeat, the turns on the groomed runs are still good and the clear valley views are awesome this morning. It is a little colder today, so make sure to bring the proper layers.  The weekend is here and we are ready to cruise some corduroy. This week’s theme has been clear, calm, cool, corduroy and we have another day and night on our hands that will perfectly match that description. Sunshine will be soaked in on Saturday but Sunday will bring with it the front edge of the next storm cycle. We recommend sticking to the groomed runs as off-piste conditions are firm and variable and will benefit from a refresh of snow mid-week. Forecast - Sunny, with a high near 26. North wind 5 to 8 mph becoming west in the afternoon.   Chairs 1, 3, 4, the Pika Peak Rope Tow, and the 100LAPS Rope Tow are scheduled for operation from 9 am to 4 pm today with Chair 1, Chair 4, the Pika Peak Rope Tow, and the 100LAPS Rope Tow Scheduled for operation during Night Skiing from 4 pm - 9 pm.

10 AM Update: I know we come here for the turns, but don't forget to enjoy the views while you are here as well! It's a cool, crisp morning, and the groomers are skiing great and they are calling for mostly sunny today. With the way the mountain has been skiing and riding the last few days, expect to find consistent turns all over the mountain until we close tonight at 9 pm. Calm, clear, cool, corduroy. This assortment of alliteration always assures an awesome time out on the mountain. The grooming crew continues to deliver great groomed snow-covered ground for you to gleefully glide over. Make sure to bundle up today as the barometer will be bound between 20 and 30 degrees. Start your weekend off early and enjoy the enticing views while we eagerly await the extended forecast. Today calls for partly sunny skies to gradually become sunny, with a high near 23 degrees. Winds will be light and out of the northeast 5 to 7 mph. Chairs 1, 3, 4, the Pika Peak Rope Tow, and the 100LAPS Rope Tow are scheduled for operation from 9 am to 4 pm today with Chair 1, Chair 4, the Pika Peak Rope Tow, and the 100LAPS Rope Tow Scheduled for operation during Night Skiing from 4 pm - 9 pm.
