Inside Scoop March 22

“In a white room with black curtains near the station, Black roof country, no gold pavements, tired starlings, Silver horses ran down Moonbeams in your dark eyes, Dawn light smiles on you leaving, my contentment… (C ’68)

We continue to be in a white room. The Eagle area skied well Saturday morning and we’ll get all but Falcon groomed in tonight. This will be the first groom in that area since all the new fresh power so it will be exquisite Sunday morning, no over processing of the snow there!.Our Coaster and Tubing park are closed for the season, but the Coaster will reopen with Sky High  for summer operations in May. The slopes are in excellent condition. Come on out to ski and ride as we finish up March in mid-winter conditions. See you at the pond skim!!

Wow, oh Wow, you won't believe the incredible conditions this week. Since the beginning of the week it's just been snowing and snowing and SNOWING! Over 20 inches since Sunday night has given us the most wonderful skiing and snowboarding, so soft that your turns are silent. We have not had this much snow in March for years... It's like the old days! This weekend we'll be running 11 lifts including Eagle, with 52 slopes. The glades are covered and cross country trails are primo! 

Saturday brings the annual Pond Skimming and Box Race competitions and SUNSHINE! See you at Yodeler, with registration at 11, Box Race at 12:30 and Pond Skimming at 1:00. There will also be great music from DJ John Barry and a cookout and margarita bar! Sunday is the Spring Open slalom race on Edelweiss and you just might catch a few future stars out there, starting at 9:30AM.

We bid farewell to Twilight hours on Saturday and we will be closing at 4:30PM starting Sunday. Starting Monday, March 25 we will operate 6 lifts (Sunrise, Cindy's, Creekside, Mardi Gras, Yodeler and Morning Star) from 9AM to 4:30PM with over 30 slopes. Our target closing date is April 7 and by the look of the slopes right now and the weather forecast, we'll be skiing and riding on mighty fine conditions right up to the last day. This is a reminder that night passes are good during the day now that night skiing is over for the season. I’ll see you out there.
