Mountain Report

It is always going to be a good day when I can report fresh snow, and today I get to tell you that we received 1" of new snow at the summit!

Yesterday was absolutely phenomenal with an unexpected sunny day and textbook perfect spring conditions. Last night the temps dropped into the upper 20s above mid-mountain, but this is fine as it will help keep the snow in good shape.  There may be a slight crust out there today and the top half of the mountain may be a little firm to start, but the mountain is going to soften up nicely as temps reach toward their highs in the low 40s. With 56 trails covering 345 acres of terrain from the deep spring bumps on Triple Trouble and Big Dipper to our legendary cruisers like Walking Boss and Blue Ox.

It is already 34 at the base and 28 at the summit with expected highs reaching 41.  It is mostly cloudy, and we expect the clouds to stick around all day and we may even see a passing shower or flurries throughout the day. We have seen everything spring has to offer this week. From beautiful sunny skies and highs in the upper 40s to a little mixed precipitation and even a little rain (which we haven't seen in quite some time).  Spring is all about fun, and if you are here today, that is exactly what you'll be having. I know the prospects of some passing showers doesn't sound very appealing, but they snow will be great and it definitely won't be cold.  If today is anything like yesterday, we won't even see any rain and the clouds will break to a beautiful blue sky (we can hope, can't we).
