As predicted it is a wet and wild one out there! I just got in from a few runs on Chair 3 and the top 1/4 is fun and I even ventured off into some tree lines which were a little heavier, but not bad at all. From about mid-Chair 3 down, it becomes grabby, and wetter. You really want to have that warm weather wax on today. It's currently raining in the Base Area and the snow is grabby. It's a snow-rain mix at Midway, and heavy, wet snow at the top of Chair 3.
Early Morning Report
Wild winter weather. That is the best way to describe this morning. We received 10” of new snow overnight and the precipitation is still coming down. A heavy snow-rain mix is falling in the Base Area with heavy snow falling on the upper mountain. The forecast is a bit all over the place for today with several more inches of snow likely on the upper mountain. Rain before 7am, then snow between 7am and 10am, then rain after 10am is forecast for the Base Area. Conditions will be variable today depending on elevation. Expect heavy, wet snow across much of the mountain. Avalanche risk is high today. We will have Chairs 1, 3, 4, the Pika Peak Rope Tow, and the 100LAPS Rope Tow scheduled for operation from 9 am to 4 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.
It is important that everyone recognizes that this season is different from any we’ve experienced. It is up to every individual, both ski area employee and guest, to do their part to help protect the health and safety of our skiing and snowboarding community. Our expectation is that each one of us will follow protocols to help keep each other healthy. We ask all employees and guests to share in this responsibility and help us, “be the reason we have a season.”
