Mountain Report

Tips Up: (1/18/18 5:00 p.m.) The freezing level dropped below the base overnight and we picked up between 4-5 inches of snow early this morning. For much of the day we were under blue skies but it clouded up this afternoon and we picked up another 2-3 inches of snow as the lifts were closing.  Cooler temps and more snow is expected as we head into the weekend.  Everything from Northway to Silver Basin opened today, but there were still untracked lines as Patrol did their sweeps at the end of the day so bring your pow shredding appetite tomorrow!  We still have thin coverage in places so keep an eye out for unmarked objects and remember to always ski in control. 

As a reminder we’ll be open for night skiing Friday and Sunday until 6pm, and Saturday until 8pm.  Also grab your gal pals and head up for International Women’s Ski Day this Saturday with a full day of fun activities and chances to win cool prizes!  The Mountain Music Series continues with live music on Saturday from 2-5pm on the Sundeck with Acorn Project.  Try a new approach to the mountain; catch a ride with one of our transportation partners and enjoy a relaxing drive with front row parking and discounted lift tickets.  Also just a reminder 5-packs of tickets are available online until January 31st so grab yours now before this sweet deal ends.  We’ll see you at the top!
