Good morning skiers and riders! Woohoo! We've got about 8 inches of fresh snow on the ground.
We are open with 47 trails, 5 lifts and 153 acres, from 9am to 4pm. Lifts open today include: the Lookout Triple, South Quad, C-More Double & the Flying and Magic Carpets. Expect powder and packed powder conditions on the slopes.
We have also been taking advantage of the colder temperatures and were blasting the snow guns earlier this week, as part of our final phase of snowmaking. Read more about our snowmaking process on our snowmageddon blog.
The weather calls for mostly sunny skies, with a high of 21 degrees.
The Matinee Terrain Park, Director's Cut, Upper and Lower Double Feature Terrain Parks & The Reel Terrain Park will be open today.
The tubing park and Mountain Adventure Park will be closed today and will reopen for the weekend on Friday, January 30th. Click here for details on operating hours.

Mother Nature treated us to some rain yesterday afternoon and overnight. The good news is that our snowmakers have built a great base of snow so our base depths were not greatly impacted.
Going into Tuesday we will fire up the system and complete snowmaking on Evergreen, Arlberg, Lower Arlberg and North Conway. By Thursday we expect to have these trails completed and as a result we will have 100% of our snowmaking terrain open by Saturday, January 24. In addition to snowmaking on these trails we will go back to Middle, the Summit, top of Schneider and add some more snow to our Beginner Basin/Terrain Based Learning Area. Refreshing these areas will greatly improve our snow surface for the weekend.
Cold temperatures return tonight and will stay with us all week so it looks like a very productive week of snowmaking ahead.
With all the challenges thrown our way this year, my compliments go out to our snowmaking and grooming team who have allowed us to have great skiing for a majority of this season.
So take some time to thank a snowmaker or groomer if you see them.
Thanks and I look forward to seeing everyone at the mountain soon.
President & GM
