Snow Reporter's Comments
Today was proof that even a little bit of snow can do amazing things. With 2” of fresh blanketing the slopes this morning, the first few runs of the day were an awesome mix of chalky corduroy and cold, smoky powder. And with light snow continuing throughout the day, we picked up another inch by the afternoon. After a full groom tonight, first tracks tomorrow should be just as sweet.
While it may only take a little bit of snow to do amazing things, we have our sights set higher. Our snowmakers have moved over to South Peak, where they’re currently burying Cruiser and Boom Run. With stellar snowmaking temps headed our way this week, we’ll focus most of our firepower on that side of the mountain. We may even get a huge assist from Old Man Winter this weekend with a nor’easter, so stay tuned.
We'll have three lifts running on Wednesday, including the Gondola, North Peak Express Quad, and Sarsaparilla Carpet. All lifts open at 9 a.m.
The park on Lower Picked Rock is back, with three features this time around! There's a down rail, small jump, and barrel jib. There is also a park containing a flat box for beginner/intermediate riders by the Little Sister lift, and above that on the bottom of Little Sister are three features - a down c rail, a double down rail, and a down tube for intermediate/advanced riders. We're still making snow in LMP, so stay tuned!
If you haven’t purchased your New England Pass
yet, it's time to get in gear! You can't go wrong with one of these passes, since they give you access to three premier New England resorts, one of the longest seasons in the Northeast, and plenty of other perks.
And if you’re not ready to get a season pass, you should consider getting a Frequent Skier Card
. For a few bucks more than a regular lift ticket, you’ll get a free lift ticket, plus savings of up to $25 per lift ticket for the rest of the season. It pays for itself in just two days, so you should seriously think about getting one.
Shopping for new gear? Get here for Demo Day
this Saturday and try all the latest gear from Salomon, Head, K2, Dynastar, Line, Blizzard, Nordica, and more. For just $10, plus a valid lift ticket or season pass, you'll be able to try as much new gear as you'd like. And if you're a telemarker, we'll have skis and boots for you, too.
