02-06-2016 06:17:57:We got 3 more inches of snow overnight. That puts us around 16" since in three days. Keeping checking back to get our official snowfall measurement later in the morning, really just just come up. The skiing is the best it's been in a while.

Since temps are staying cold, there's not that stickiness to the lower mountain surface. Snow accumulation does drop as you work your way down the mountain, but an inch or two did pile up in the parking lot late afternoon yesterday after the lifts closed.

Expect some great groomer skiing out East and on Most, Raven, and Log Jam on the West side. Off trail skiing is very high quality with all this new snow. East and West Bowls are filled with powder and largely untracked. 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 its like up here.

For today Mountain Lift will be serving out of the Eagle's Nest. All chairlift are running. Lifts start at 9am. Hooter and porcupine will close at 4. Ptarmigan and Black Bear at 3:30. 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!
