Mountain Update Dec 29, 2012

Steve Crowley - Saturday, December 29, 2012

Tell all the people that you see, Follow me, Follow me down, Tell all the people that you see, Set them Free, Follow me down, You tell them they don’t have to run, We’re gonna pick up everyone, Come out and take me by the hand, Gonna bury all our troubles in the sand….. (RK ’69) 

And pick you up we will, currently have all 13 lifts operating with the addition of Eagle lift this Sunday. Snowmaking continues around the clock and Grooming crews are out each night to gain more terrain by compacting the natural snow, (we’ve received over 2 feet in the past week) along with moving and processing the man made snow. We experienced 14+ hours of east wind on Wednesday that allowed snow makers to get some great base gains on the eastern edges (skiers/riders right) of Yodeler, Chute, Edelweiss, Champagne, and Cindy’s. Crews made snow on Foxfire and Jim farmed it up into a 14 foot kicker for the US Air Bag event going on now at lower Foxfire more information available under current events web page.

The Tubing Park is now open with 5 groomed lanes and the Mountain Coaster is operating 1 to 8 PM every day throughout the holiday week as well. Coaster tickets can be purchased at any ticket sales point, they are not available at the coaster loading platform. Complimentary shuttles are operating and will pick you up to get you around the resort, just ask any lodge or lot attendant for assistance in getting a ride.

Cold nights and snow in the forecast right through the New Year will keep the skiing and riding great. With a focus on terrain parks the snow makers will be adding inventory for the features to be installed and shaped. The New Years Eve celebration this year will be one of the best ever with the brand new Holiday Valley Lodge THE place to be to view the parades and fireworks. I’ll see you on the slopes….soon.
