12/8 Conditions Report

10am Report-

First runs are in the bag, sun is shining, and views from the summit are incredible.

We’re experiencing softer conditions at the summit to Lower Tumwater, and getting firmer as you approach to Midway. Conditions will be variable throughout the mountain today.

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

 

8am Report –

It’s been a roller coster of weather this week with the snow and then the rain. That being said, we have received 2″-3″ of new snow throughout the mountain in the last 48hrs and the forecast is looking promising for the weekend. It’s looking like it’s going to be clear sky’s and groomed runs for us today, with variable conditions throughout the mountain.

Our Snowmaking Crew and many others across the mountain have been hard at work making it possible for us to enjoy yet another weekend on the slopes.

Chair 1, Chair 2, The Pika Peak Rope Tow, The Ottobahn Carpet, and the 100LAPS Rope Tow will be scheduled for operation today. The runs Sunspot, Tumwater, Mimi, and Pika Peak will be open as well as the 100LAPS Terrain Park. Additional terrain will open as conditions permit.

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