Localized Lake Effect Storm Re-opens MRG!


10-20" (SERIOUSLY) of fluffy "Champlain Powder" has been delivered overnight and throughout the day and MRG is back in business on Friday! Oh and by the way… still DUMPING and doesn’t seem to be letting up!  We have received upwards of 20" of new snow this week so far and not a moment too soon!  It’s absolutely blower, the kind of “Champlain Powder” we sometimes get when the lake is unfrozen and the wind hits just right. Weird thing is that there is very little new snow just a few hundred feet in elevation down from the base area – very localized storm – very cool indeed!


The skiing on Friday should be some of the best of the season (yeah, we know) with deep pockets of freshies everywhere. The cats are out diligently tacking down as much of that golden fluff as they possibly can so the groomers should be magnificent tomorrow. Not sure of the exact trail count at this point but we certainly expect it to be nearly everything. (The open trails noted in the current trail report are merely a projection and there may be some rotation or closures as the day progresses). On Friday we plan to spin The Single, the Sunnyside Double, the Practice Slope and the Callie’s Corner  Handle Tow from 9 AM to 4 PM accessing nearly 100% of our legendary trails. On Saturday and for the rest of the President’s Week Holiday we plan to spin all 5 of our lifts. Stay tuned to this report for the latest updates as this storm doesn’t seem to be showing any signs of stopping!


Since we have had such a tough start to our season and our skiers have been so incredibly patient we want to make Midweek and Value Passes valid this weekend. Thanks for your resolve and lets all hope that we have finally turned the corner on the ski season and we can look forward to the best half a season ever!
