Mountain Updates Feb. 1, 2013

Steve Crowley - Friday, February 01, 2013


  “ bye bye, you better keep in touch, I think your ears hear a whole lot of music, And like me you’ve heard a bit too much,  Too much of anything, is too much for me, Too much of everything gets too much for me, I think these hands have felt a lot, I don’t know what have I touched?  I think these eyes have seen a lot, I don’t know, maybe they’ve seen too much” (TW ’71) 

We’ve seen it all, is the saying this week with warm weather and thunder earlier in the week and now ohhh yea lake effect snow!! We have a good foot of new snow and good snowmaking temperatures going into the weekend. Some of the eastern edges of the slopes are thin now but will improve as we get more natural snow. Snowmaking will operate Friday into Saturday morning then stop during skiing/riding hours both Saturday and Sunday. All lifts will be open and the cross country trails are packed up top and the lower (golf course) trail. We’ll plan to winch the Wall headwall Saturday morning and hope to have it open for the weekend.  The Tubing Park and Mountain Coaster are open as well and conditions are improving daily. Moon Shadow is groomed up as a terrain park with several berms and rollers Snoozer park has features buillt and rails set for a competition there on Saturday morning. After the competition Snoozer will be open to the public. Foxfire park is open and has been rebuilt along with the Rail Park at the bottom of Mardi Gras. There's a competition mogul event on the Chute on Sunday but we also have moguls on Yodeler east side. Great weather ahead so come on out and enjoy.
