Mountain Updates Feb. 8, 2013

Steve Crowley - Friday, February 08, 2013

“Sweeping cobwebs from the edges of my mind, had to get away to see what we could find, Hope the days that lie ahead, bring us back to where they’ve led, listen not to what’s been said to you, Wouldn’t you know we’re riding on the Marrakesh express?” (GN ’68) 

Fresh crisp air, sunny slopes, and great snow will sweep the cobwebs, a solid bet. Our base has been building to mid winter conditions with some big nights of making snow this past week. Moguls are available on Chute and Yodeler and the terrain parks have had extensive rebuilds this week. Foxfire saw two good days of snowmaking and Jim has been out shaping and setting features there and will finish up Friday morning. Moon Shadow park consists of all snow features that were built for a Boardercross contest and have been modified and now are open daily for all riders and skiers. Check it out!

Grooming crews are busy each night moving snow, leveling snow mounds, and tilling up a fresh corduroy surface each morning. We are still light on natural snow so our glades remain closed, With the hype around the big storm this weekend we might get enough snow to get the glades...stay tuned. 

All lifts are operating on the regular schedule along with the Mountain Coaster and our Tubing Park open Thursdays through Sundays. The Tubing Park has the little tubers hill for guests too small to ride the tows. Little Tubers are free, we just ask that an adult be with the little ones out there. Birthday party bookings at the Tubing Park are available for $20 per person including tubing, pizza or a hot dog and use of the party room. Cleveland Metro will be racing with us on Saturday on Cindy’s slope and USASA and NFSC will be racing on Edelweiss Saturday and Sunday. It is a great time to hit the slopes, we’ll see you out there.
