2/4/2021 Conditions Report

Posted on February 4th, 2021


10 AM Update: The groomers were smooth this morning, and I found a couple of powder pockets off-piste on the top of Chair 3 and 4 that were fun. Off-piste becomes more variable as you work down from the top, so take it easy your first couple of runs to get a feel.

Blue skies are expected to continue today with more great views from the mountain. The grooming crew has been doing an excellent job with the groomed runs, and today is no different. Groomers will be soft and smooth with runs firming up as you descend the mountain. Off-piste [non-groomed] conditions will be variable around the mountain with the more exploratory skiers finding powder stashes here and there. Patrol has been hard at work with avalanche mitigation, be smart, be safe, and always ski with a buddy when venturing into hiking terrain.

Chairs 1, 3, 4, and the Pika Peak Rope Tow are scheduled for operation from 9 am to 4 pm with Chair 1, Chair 4, and the Pika Peak Rope Tow, Scheduled for operation during Night Skiing from 4 pm - 9 pm. The 100LAPS Rope Tow is currently closed as it is undergoing maintenance and will open as soon as possible.

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.”
