THANK YOU, MOTHER NATURE!
Our gratitude is big this week for the incredible drastic decrease in temperatures and the blessing of heavy natural snow fall. We revved up the guns nightly from Thursday to Sunday and reopened Widow Maker and The Chute. Recovery and recoup bumped our number of open trails back up to 38/39.
In the midnight hour.
Winter Storm Stella hit us strong, dumping over 20″ of fresh powder across the slopes. We spent a good portion of our Tuesday plowing parking lots and shoveling walkways. Then plowing and shoveling again— and again and again. When Mother Nature takes on the hard work, it’s our job to make sure her work is appreciated. We plowed the way, and you heard the calling . Dedicated skiers and riders made it safe to the slopes for the best damn riding of the year.
Winter is still here and expected to stick around until the end of the March. Tentatively, that allows us to keep doors open into April. Cool temperatures and sunny days make the perfect match to keep on riding.
If you’re not reading this from the chairlift, you need to get here and ready to ride.
20+” of fresh pow is what we call March Madness.
See you today, tomorrow, and the next day on the slopes,

How are the snow conditions for a possible 3/23 Thursday ski day? I’m nervous that the hills will be quite icy after the melting and freezing. Should I wait until Friday to allow some softening or do you think Thursday will be ok with few ice patches? Thanks – Gates
Hey, Gates! We anticipate no ice, but the conditions will be mostly granular. We groom every night, so you can catch the best corduroy early morning. Expect conditions to change throughout the day pending traffic on the slopes and weather. See you on the slopes!
Y’all are the best. I’ve been trying to figure out a way to incorporate that GD song in a post. You nailed it!
I want a tshirt with the blue mountsin snow bkower on it! Lets have a contest on naming it.
That’s an awesome idea. We’ll pass it along to our marketing team!
