02-05-2016 15:40:48:13” of new snow. Cold temps top to bottom. No sticky factor. Excellent snow today! Bluebird skies and deep powder skiing. East and West Bowls are absolutely full of fresh snow. Tomorrow should be another good one. Check skijuneau.com in the morning to get weather updates and more mountain info or call our snow phone 586-5330. Right now, it’s snowing again so we’re looking pretty good to go.

Mountain Operations staff made snow earlier in the week and has been grooming the mountain in full force. The forecast looks like more of the same ahead. As long as the temps stay cold, we will be getting snow. So if you see rain at sea level, you better give us a look and see what it’s like up here.

For today– Ptarmigan, Hooter, and Porcupine Chairlifts will run from 9:00 AM to 3:30 PM. Bowls close at least 30 minutes before last chair. Cross country skiing is groomed for both skating and classic styles on the upper Nordic loop, access via the Trickster trail. Low snow conditions do exist on the lower mountain.

The whole month of February our Retail and Repair Shops will have great deals: $10 off full tunes, $5 off edge/wax combos, and T-Shirts for just $13! Thought for the day is “plan on groomers, hope of soft turns in the bowls”
