During the "big Nor'eater" we picked up a fresh 4-6” of new snow. Normally we'd be pretty happy with a nice little midweek dump like that but it was a bit disappointing after all the hype this storm received. Oh well, apparently we are being a little greedy in a season that has provided us some incredible skiing to date. Even before the storm we had been enjoying some magnificent mid-season skiing conditions and the good news is that we might get another blast of snow later today through Friday which will set us up for another weekend of tremendous skiing. The precipitation from the storm came with cold temperatures and the resulting snow flakes were fine, which settled in densely along with some significant wind. For skiers that meant that the majority of the new snow drifted into the mountain's many nooks and crannies as well as amongst the trees. Our famous woods and glades have exquisite packed powder, and fresh lines abound for the adventurous skier. The trails are covered wall to wall with soft packed powder and there are pockets of chopped powder on moguls and along the edges. Overnight the cats rolled out the corduroy on a nice selection of our novice and intermediate trails for skiers to enjoy. Today we will offer 100% of our main mountain terrain serviced by 3 of 5 lifts scheduled to spin from 9 AM to 4 PM with far more civilized temperatures that should surge well into the upper 20's. Come on up and see for yourself, you never know until you go, go, GO!
