Saturday and Sunday will be bracketed by colder temps on Friday and Monday. Look for light snow at various points across the next several days. Click the link for an up-to-date view.




As of this writing, 119 of 120 trails open with a 24-40” base. Any guess on the one trail that’s closed?  With warmer temps, the bumps might take on more appeal.  If so, consider Black Out, Ledges, Triple Sec, Sel’s Choice, Punch Line, or Upper Limelight.

And staying in tune? As always, please consult with our local shops. For me, the warming temperatures are suggesting a nice red (wax or wine, either is OK with me).
