We enter the weekend before Christmas with nearly the entire main mountain open for skiing with coverage that is reminiscent of February not December. While the skiing is not as stellar as last week it is still pretty darn good and it should be a beautiful day with sunny skies and comfortable temperatures. Surface conditions have firmed up a bit and are best described as firm packed powder and frozen granular withs puffs of powder thrown in. The lower angle terrain and the groomers are skiing pretty darn nicely and a nice selection of runs have been buffed out overnight. The steeper, un-groomed trails are a tad firm for sure but absolutely edge-able with pockets of fluff in the troughs and along the edges. Today we plan to crank up the Single Chair & Sunnyside Double from 8:30 AM until 3:45 PM with nearly all (Upper Paradise is Closed) of our main mountain terrain wide open!
