Mountain Report

We couldn't have asked for a better opening day with solid snow coverage on 9 trails and 65 acres available to ski and ride - and it's only going to get better from here!

Despite stronger winds today, trail conditions were as good as we could have hoped for on opening day with machine groomed trails and a few inches of fresh, natural snow at the summit. The first Saturday of the 2017-18 winter season is also shaping up to be a great day of riding, with 9 trails open and summit access via the Gondola and East Basin lift. Open trails will include Bear Claw Extension, Exodus, Upper Bear Claw, Upper Picked Rock, Grand Junction, Lower Picked Rock, Link, Seven Brothers, and Lower Bear Claw. We're expecting all open trails to be machine groomed and ready for carving. Open terrain tomorrow will be suitable for intermediate and advanced skiers and riders only, but we're working to get some beginner terrain open as soon as possible.

Our snowmakers were hard at work today blasting fresh snow onto several trails, including Sunset, Haulback, Lower Walking Boss, Upper Flying Fox, Crosscut, Basin Street, and Springboard. Overnight into Saturday they are planning to make more snow on Snubber, Sarsaparilla and Rampasture. Snowmaking will continue throughout Saturday as long as temperatures remain cool enough to keep the guns running. Expect more trails and lifts to open in the near future as our dedicated team of snowmakers continue to work around the clock. See you on the slopes!

Terrain Parks

I just spoke to our terrain park crew, and it looks like we'll have one of our Top Secret parks open on Lower Picked Rock this weekend with 4 jibs and 1 jump. We'll also have 2 jibs open slopeside by The Mountain Club.

This report is updated twice daily (morning & afternoon) and more frequently as changes on the mountain dictate. This report reflects conditions as of the time and date noted and is subject to change at any time. Conditions subsequent to the time and date of this report may be different. Lifts and trails may open or close due to weather, usage or maintenance. Reports posted after 2 p.m. reflect what is predicted for the next day and are subject to change the next morning. If a trail is marked as 'groomed,' that means that it has been groomed within the past 12 hours. If a trail is marked as 'snowmaking,' this means that it either currently has snowmaking operations underway or has been subject to snowmaking within the past 12 hours.
