10:25am Update

Chair 2 is now off hold. It is very warm on the Lower Mountain this morning, and the heavy snow conditions reflect that. Due to avalanche control and mechanical hold we have not skied the Upper Mountain, but the termperatures have so far held steady so expect the snow quality to be much better than below Midway. Bombers and all off-piste areas are now open. Several of these areas are opening for the first time this season, so please be cautious of hazards as you explore new terrain. Have fun!


Morning Report

My legs are a little tired from yesterday, but that is not going to stop me from getting out there today. Warming temperatures and a light mix of precip overnight will have an effect on the snow density and surface characteristics. Changes will be most apparent around Midway and the Lower Mountain. Patrol is performing avalanche mitigation work this morning and will open new terrain as conditions permit. I'm looking forward to another day of great skiing, I hope you are too!
