Jan. 14 update from Bob & Jon

It’s here – the mid-January break! It’s going to be a great weekend with sunshine, warm temps and spring snow. A little caveat -  the snow is firm in the morning before the sun softens things up, but the groomers cover all the named runs every morning. A tip there is that the canyon run is groomed top to bottom, but in places the mountain can be firm. It’s a good idea to wear your helmet.

 

It looks like through Monday and into the next two weeks we’ll be having this type of weather, with a little bit of precip now and then to help soften things up. We’re looking at temperatures in the mid 30’s to low 40’s during the day and getting down into the high 20’s at night which firms everything up.

We’ll be running full operations with two base areas, 8 lifts, 3 lodges, no reservations required so make your plans now to come on up!
