K2 Ski Demo in Parking Lot #1

Today was very exciting with so much activity going on. K2 ski demo today in the upper parking lot, the Extreme Skiing Challenge on Full Nelson, and the Teton Gravity Research Stokemobile in front of the Base Lodge. We received another inch of new snow today and 4 inches in the past 3 days. Tomorrow we plan to have top to bottom skiing and riding on all 3 mountains with 6 lifts operating. We now have 53 trails open with terrain for all ability levels. 38 trails will be groomed for tomorrow, including Upper FIS, Bootleggers, and Curley’s Cutback for a grand total of 148 acres. Tomorrow’s forecast is calling for partly to mostly cloudy skies with a chance of flurries and temperatures between 20 and 34 degrees.

Extreme Skiing Challenge

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAIt was so much fun watching these very talented skiers. I saw one young skier do at least three 360’s and he spun both ways, which is even harder. Today’s competition was 18 years and younger but, tomorrows competition will have all age brackets. We had skiers come from as far away as Whistler, BC and Eldora, CO. I had a wonderful time today and I am really looking forward to all the action tomorrow.

Tonight we plan to groom 33 trails, including Upper FIS, Smugglers’ Alley, and Snow Snake for a grand total of 133 acres of freshly groomed terrain. Tomorrow’s forecast is calling for flurries and snow showers with an inch of accumulation possible with temperatures between 20 and 33 degrees. We are also expecting another 2 inches of new snow Sunday night into Monday.

Adding up pretty fast!

We received 3 inches of new snow today and 6 inches in the past 6 days. It was really snowing hard for a while this afternoon. The new snow is bounding well with the existing snow. This afternoon, Ski Patrol opened Lower Pipeline which also opened Upper Treasure Run. I was lucky enough to ski Upper Treasure Run and the new snow was fantastic.  We have top to bottom skiing and riding on all 3 mountains with all 8 lifts operating. We have 44 trails open with terrain for all ability levels. 36 trails will be groomed tonight, including Upper FIS, Smugglers’ Alley, and Snow Snake for a grand total of 139 acres of freshly groomed terrain.
