Mountain Report

Well, that was unexpected. A mini-storm that was only supposed to drop an inch or two ended up dumping 4" at the base and 5.5" at the summit throughout the day, giving us our first legitimate, small-scale pow day of the year. It was awesome, and also adorable.

While today was a blast, tomorrow is shaping up to be pretty good, too. Our groomers will sculpt today's new snow into plush corduroy just in time for first chair, and we're even expecting the sun to come out for a while. In other big news, ski patrol tells me we'll drop the ropes on Lower Bear Claw tomorrow, giving us a top-to-bottom route for beginners. That'll give us 16 trails and 88 acres of skiing and riding - still the most open terrain in New Hampshire.

And don't think for a second that we're giving our snowmakers the night off. They'll continue cranking snow on 11 trails tonight, refreshing surfaces and building up a deep base on Brookway, Rampasture, Snubber, Blue Ox, Lower Picked Rock, Springboard, and some other crowd favorites. The snowmaking forecast looks excellent through at least this weekend, so look for even more new terrain to open soon.

For those looking to go uphill, we ask that there be no uphill skinning - at least until we can open a bit more terrain. If you'd like to brush up on our uphill travel policy, you can check it out here.

Terrain Parks

Two parks are open with 8 jibbing features. A snowmaking pipe and box is set up near the Tote Road Quad and you'll also find a set up with 6 elements on Sarsaparilla (lift ticket is required to access this park).

Conditions may vary with weather and skier/snowboarder traffic. Be aware of changing conditions. 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.
