2 skiers on a stormy day

2/1/2021 Conditions Report

Posted on February 1st, 2021


9:30 am Update

It has been snowing hard this morning and there is about 1” of new snow on top of the PM groomed runs off of Chair 3. The turns on the upper portion of Skookum are super sweet and soft. The snow is drier up there making for wonderful skiing. The snow transitions to the heavier/wetter variety about the Chair 4 road crossover on Skookum and then becomes sticky and soft on Mimi heading into the Base Area. The forecast is calling for 2”-4” total of new snow today and things are looking promising for that to happen.

Early Morning Report

We are starting the day on the warmer side with temps in the base and at summit currently at 38 degrees. Snow will be nice and soft at the base and we anticipate some firming up as you rise in elevation as we anticipate cooler temps on the way up the mountain. Off-piste [non-groomed] will be variable throughout the day with snow reacting to the days dropping temperature. Expect your speed to pick up as the day moves on and things start to cool down.

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.

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.”



2/1 - Snow, mainly before 1pm. High near 31. South wind around 14 mph. Chance of precipitation is 90%. New snow accumulation of 2 to 4 inches possible. With temperatures a few degrees warmer in the base look for snow/rain depending on where those temperatures land for the day.
