Mountain Update from Steve Crowley, Director of Mt Ops

Steve Crowley - Friday, December 21, 2012


 “Said woman take it slow, It’ll work itself out fine. All we need is just a little patience, Said sugar make it slow, And we’ll come together fine, All we need is just a little patience, Patience,,patience,,,patience, ooh, oh, yeah” GnR ’89

  Winter is on the way, really, as the front passes through tonight (Thursday) we have wet and windy conditions. The snow we have been able to make earlier this season is grooming up well each morning and we plan to get 2 more lifts open for Saturday morning. The forecast is for up to 10 inches of natural snow and decent snowmaking temperatures (below 24f). All of the Mountain team members are itching to get this season rolling. Looks like a busy week ahead as snowmaking and grooming will work around the clock to get more and more slopes and terrain open as we go into the Holiday week. It has been a slow start this year and patience is the word of the day as we all remember to be grateful for all that we have and think of those less fortunate in the nation and world around us.

    Our Mountain Coaster will open for the winter season this Friday and will operate daily right into the new year you can check our operating schedule posted on this site. Snowmaking will resume at the Tubing Park and the plan is to get a minimum of 5 lanes open for next week. Be safe in your travels and I’ll see you on the slopes!
