We're looking at some interesting conditions today. The 6-10 inches forecast last night did not exactly materialize. It did snow, and is currently snowing on top of the mountain. The lower portion though....it's another story. Right now we have a very wet sleet falling at the base area. Temperatures are around 37 degrees. At this time we do not have the accumulations needed to open tomorrow.
Everything we can provide to be ready has been done except grooming. We will groom the slopes the day/night before we open. However to put a snowcat on the mountain right now would cause some extensive damage to the lower half of the mountain. So what we're looking for now is colder temps. The moisture is certainly there.
So maybe now we all do the temperature dance rather than snow dance! Thanks for hanging in there. You guys are great!
you dont have to open on a powder day every year. we dont care if its slushy at the bottom or if its even a little icy, we just want to slide on snow.
Our goal is not to open with a powder day. With the saturation of the snow on the lower half of the mountain, if we allow people to ski it, it would only last about 1-2 hours.
Is there a way to get a full screen image of the PH camera. Clicking on it does enlarge it some, but it doesn't allow you to see the timestamp. I prefer not to save it.
Took awhile to figure out where the blog is located, noted by B. I assume others may have similar issues.
Unfortunately we do not have enough bandwidth to increase the size of the webcam image and accomodate the large amounts of traffic we receive on the page. Many people choose to open the webcam and leave it up all day long which we love, but does require we accomodate a lot of data going out.
A fix to the blog button has been created! You'll see a link rotate with the podcast link on the homepage under CONNECT.
