Another incredible day of skiing is in the books. Temperatures remained at the freezing mark and mostly cloudy skies kept the sun’s rays at bay. The snow is remarkably soft making for effortless edge to edge ski movement. Chute and Porcupine were the picks of the day with chalky smooth packed powder from wall-to-wall. While there is some scratch in-between moguls on the steep terrain soft turns were easy to find. We’ll look to the meteorologists who are predicting more snow starting Saturday afternoon to help cover up those bare spots and soften ski surfaces once again. Tomorrow morning the mountain operations team will be busy readying the mountain for skiers. Expect to find fresh corduroy off of the top of the Sunnyside Double and on the main thoroughfares into the Base Area. Be sure to stay tuned to the conditions page for the most up-to-date information. Please be aware and ski with care, let’s all have a long and healthy 2020 ski season!

On Saturday and Sunday the Single Chair, Sunnyside Double and Practice Slope will spin from 8:30AM until 4:00PM. Callie’s Corner Handle Tow and the Birdland Double will be open between 10AM and 3PM. If you’re thinking about visiting the mountain remember that your best deal can always be found in advance online, purchase tickets ahead of time and save!
