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!
