Friday Preview

Posted on December 7th, 2017


Who is ready to get back out on the mountain? A massive high pressure ridge moved in this past week and looks to persist through the weekend, at least until Tuesday. This has meant clear skies and no natural snow, but a lot of good temps for snowmaking. The MRSM crew has once again be out on the mountain, hard at work building up that base for your enjoyment!

Expect base area temperatures in the mid-20s and ridge-top daytime temperatures in the low 40's for much of the weekend. While it's cloudy and grey in the lowlands, sunny, clear skies will dominate at Mission Ridge. Conditions will be perfect to rediscover your form and wake up those legs in anticipation of the return of winter.

See you on the hill,
