 This week’s warm weather and rain made the thin spots on the slopes even thinner, so grooming is not possible and a few critical connections are no longer there. We will not be open for skiing and riding this weekend, Dec. 3-4. However, it looks like we’ll be able to make snow Friday and Saturday nights, possibly Sunday. More serious cold weather is predicted starting later Wednesday and we’re targeting Friday, December 9 to reopen.
