3/16 Conditions Report

10AM Conditions Report: It’s a beautifully sunny Saturday! Wraparound views of the surrounding mountains and the Wenatchee Valley are providing wonderful sightseeing from every nook and cranny of the mountain. Right now the groomed snow is soft, but not Spring soft quite yet. The ungroomed snow is still firm at this point, give the sun another couple of hours and the entire mountain will be a Spring playground! Note that ungroomed snow will vary in surface type and that there are some areas with low coverage. Get out there and enjoy the super comfy temps and enjoy the Vitamin D!

Early Morning Report: Spring has arrived and the stoke is real! To start the day expect to find carveable groomers, especially on the runs that were groomed this morning. As the day goes on, switch to the runs that were groomed before midnight to continue skiing pristinely soft groomers. This morning runs off the groomers are expected to be rather firm.  Around noon and beyond you should find conditions across the mountain to be extra soft and super fun with sunny skies and the temps reaching a high of 42.

Join us for Tour de Blues today and tomorrow!

Skookum will be closed today and tomorrow for the Apple Cup races.
