No new snow. Temperature at the top of the mountain is 34 degrees with winds around 20 knots, calmer winds and slighter warmer temps at the base. Visibility should be good everywhere. The summit could get some cloud cover. Light and occasional wintry mix expected here and there throughout the day. Grab the right jacket and get up here!
It's good on and off groomed trails. Temps haven’t gotten cold enough for the snow to firm up. Conditions all over are nice and soft spring-like, corn skiing. The lower mountain base is patchy below Hooter and around the Ptarmigan base. Once you get above there, the snowpack is much, much better, so don’t judge it by the parking lot view!
All chairlifts are running. Ptarmigan and Black Bear close at 3:30pm, the bowls closing at least 30 minutes before last chair.Hooter and Porcupine close at 4:00pm. All mountain services are open. Mountain Lift is be serving hot drinks, soup, and sandwiches out of the Eagle’s Nest. Roll Back Weekend is set for March 5th & 6th. The Eaglecrest Retail shop is selling T-Shirts for just $13.
The thought for the day comes from Rudy Garmisch and the ski flick Hot Dog, and reflects on our lower mountain snow cover – “You people. You may ski on zat side of ze hill or on zat side of ze hill, but stay out of ze meedle.”
