11/19/22 Conditions Report

Posted on November 19th, 2022

 Share

10am Update: Opening Day!! The turns on groomed runs have been absolutely incredible for this early in the season, reminding us once again of just how good the MR snowmaking team is! Look for conditions on the slopes to stay consistent throughout the day, with the sun making its way across the skyline. Temperatures at the summit are feeling just a touch cooler with a breeze, so be sure to bundle up for those early season laps. 

Early Morning Report: Good morning and welcome to the start of the 2022/2023 season! Mother Nature sure has dialed up a beautiful opening day for us, with stars currently dancing over the slopes and the forecast calling for plenty of sunshine. Today will be a great day to dust off those skis and snowboards for some early season laps. Remember to grab an extra layer and take those first turns easy style as we all reacquaint ourselves with the mountain we know and love. 

The 2022/23 season will kick off with a limited opening today, Saturday 11/19 and tomorrow, Sunday 11/20 from 9 am-4 pm each day. Chair 1, The Wenatchee Express (Chair 2), Chair 4, and the Pika Peak rope tow are scheduled for operation with limited terrain open off of each lift.

Early season conditions will exist. Low snow and difficult conditions present. Please stay on open runs and respect all rope lines/trail closures as they are there for your safety.

Sunny, with a high near 27. South wind around 6 mph.
