“There are winds of changes blowing, Gathering leaves up in it’s path, And the people who are the leaves, Will remain in our hearts, With love till eternity “ (EB ’67)

After a wild weather cycle last weekend our grooming crews have improved conditions daily. We will have all lifts operating this weekend. Snowmaking had limited operating conditions earlier this week but a full out run Thursday night into Friday. Snowmaking operations will stop Saturday morning as we have rising temperatures going into Sunday. The crew will be back in operation Sunday night, with a good run setting up into next week, and then We'll get more terrain parks open along with the Wall headwall.

Skiing and riding conditions are very good now and we will welcome our pass holders for an early opening Saturday morning on Yodeler lift. Racing events this weekend have the USSA snowboard SL on Cindy’s run Sunday and NFSC racing on Edelweiss Sunday as well. The moguls on Yodeler and Morning Star are improving with 4” of natural snow today and more in the forecast. Our Tubing Park has 12 lanes and the little tubers area open all weekend, noon to 9:00 Saturday through Monday. The Mountain coaster will be operating from 1PM to 8PM Saturday through Monday as well.

As always we offer complementary shuttle service around the resort, just ask a lodge or lot attendant for assistance. Shuttles run to the Tubing Park at the top of the hour on request during operating hours. I’ll see you at the Passholders early opening at Yodeler lift Saturday morning. First tracks plus coffee hot cocoa and Timbits, see all you Passholders there!
