Saturday, 2/22
SVS Slopestyle

Sunday, 2/23
SVS Halfpipe

   We could use some sun and blue skies to go along with the recent snow.  Sure enough, brighter days ahead for Saturday and Sunday.  Click the link (above, in blue) for an up-to-date view.

The additional snow of Tuesday and Wednesday makes for  outstanding conditions.  Open slopes, glades or bumps – your choice — they’re all entertaining. As of this writing, the mountain is 100% open, 120 trails. Packed powder.

 And staying in tune?
 As always, please consult with our local shops.  For me, I’m in a rare February mood for red and maybe even yellow.
