Snow Reporter's Comments
The biggest storm of the year is delivering as promised. We saw a heavy, wet snow increase in intensity throughout the day, with ski patrol measuring 4 inches at the summit as of 2:30 p.m. The latest forecasts call for snow to absolutely nuke the mountain tonight, with anywhere from 12 to 18” expected by first chair on Thursday. Some forecasts are calling for even more, but we don’t want to jinx anything. Let’s just say we’re expecting a heck of a lot of snow.
It probably goes without saying that conditions should be incredible tomorrow, with deep powder in the woods, soft corduroy on the groomers, and 59 trails and 356 acres of terrain to explore. If you are headed up here tomorrow, please keep in mind that gusty winds may affect lift operations for a time. We’ll keep you posted with lift status updates throughout the day, so keep checking back here for the latest.
If you can’t make it up here tomorrow, don’t worry. All of this new snow is setting us up for a pretty awesome weekend – probably one of the best we've enjoyed all year. If I were you, I'd get up here on Friday and give yourself one of the best long weekends you've had in a long, long time.

With tonight's expected snowfall, Loon Mountain Park will likely be closed all of Thursday. All other parks may have delayed openings to allow us to shovel out features and get things back on point.

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.
