Mountain Report

Our snowmakers and groomers never cease to amaze me. Take today, for instance.

After yesterday's wet weather and subsequent refreeze, I'd temperated my expectations somewhat for today's snow conditions. Turns out, I'd underestimated our grooming team. They spent all of last night working over all 8 trails and 62 acres of terrain (the most open terrain in New Hampshire, in fact) to give us fast, grippy, carveable snow for first chair. Now, I'm not saying it was midwinter packed powder (we'll get there) but the conditions and coverage certainly exceeded my expectations for mid-November.

And then there are the snowmakers. The huge amount of snow they made to open the mountain last Thursday has held up quite well, giving us very good coverage for so early in the season. But those snowmakers aren't content to rest on their snow-encrusted laurels. They spent all of last night - and all of today - cranking the guns on 9 trails, including Sunset, Haulback, Lower Walking Boss, Springboard, Lower Flume, Upper Flying Fox, Little Sister, Sarsaparilla, and Snubber. We'll keep the guns running right into Tuesday morning, which should allow us to make some good progress out there. Our goal is to open some new terrain - including beginner terrain - by the upcoming weekend. As always, you'll want to keep it tuned here for updates over the next few days.

Terrain Parks

We currently have one of our Top Secret parks open on Lower Picked Rock with 4 jibs and 1 jump. We also have 2 jibs open slopeside by The Mountain Club, so be sure to check them out.

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.
