Dave finds the goods in the woods
We received 3 inches of new snow in the past 24 hours, 8 inches in the past 4 days, and 321 inches this season so far!
Lifts and Trails
We are 99 percent open. Tomorrow we plan to have top to bottom skiing and riding on all 3 mountains with 6 lifts operating. We have 77 out of 78 trails open with terrain for all ability levels. Freefall, the Black Hole, and Madonna Liftline open from the traverse on Upper FIS. Surface conditions are packed powder and powder with average base depths of 24 to 54 inches. We plan to groom 41 trails tonight, including Upper FIS, Snow Snake, and Smugglers’ Alley for a grand total of 156 acres of freshly groomed terrain.

Big ole’ daffy
Wow what a day it was! We received 5 inches of new snow overnight and 9 inches in the past 3 days. My first run of the day was Upper FIS. It was groomed last night and it had a beautiful blanket of fresh snow on top of the corduroy. I had to tell to you that stopping to take pictures took a great deal of discipline. All I wanted to do was to keep floating through the powder!
Tomorrow we plan to have top to bottom skiing and riding on all 3 mountains with 6 lifts operating. We now have 74 trails open with terrain for all ability levels.
Nice cross with the grab
