2/5/2021 Conditions Report

Posted on February 5th, 2021


10 AM Update:  The groomers were riding nice on Chair 3. I found some new powder pockets off-piste, and the sun was out over near the Hidden Valley section making for some spring-like turns.  The conditions off-piste about midway down chair 3 become more variable. Look for the runs to become more variable throughout the day.

It is looking like another beautiful day on the mountain. Groomers are expected to start fast and firm, runs will soften as the sun warms things up throughout the day. Off-piste [non-groomed] conditions will be variable, with windy conditions last night, expect wind deposited snow in new areas. A previously skied out run may have filled in just for you. Softest turns will be found near the tops of chairs 3 and 4 with conditions changing near mid mountain where I might suggest joining a groomed run for the rest of your lap.

Chairs 1, 3, 4, the Pika Peak rope tow, and 100LAPS Rope Tows are scheduled for operation from 9 am to 4 pm with Chair 1, Chair 4, the Pika Peak, and 100LAPS Rope Tows scheduled for operation during Night Skiing from 4 pm - 9 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.”



2/5 - A 30 percent chance of snow, mainly before 8am. Mostly sunny, with a high near 32. Windy, with a west wind 16 to 25 mph, with gusts as high as 40 mph. Total daytime snow accumulation of less than a half inch possible.
