    Very firm and fast this morning (8am). Softened up a couple hours later and the harvest began. Great coverage seen on Black Diamond. Not sure about Exterm or Bravo but they were all "back in play"...

    Having the upper mountain lifts open helps a lot with the lift lines, especially at Bravo and Gate House. Had Heaven's Gate and North Lynx been on windhold, the base area lift lines would've been a...

    I will say this... ski patrol is pretty generous with trail openings, meaning that if they have a trail closed, its closed for a reason. I would suggest NOT ducking the rope on Lower Birdland or...

    Correct. I did not make it up there today, but saw the guns going on upper Jester. They had moved them around to hit various parts of the trail and to have enough capacity to light up Lower...

    Today was actually a lot of fun on "hero snow". Yes, it r@!#ed but temps stayed in the 30s for the most part and we probably walked away with little depth damage, unlike last week when it was 60...

    These temps have definitely been chilly and lift rides are cold, but if you're prepared, there is some good skiing to be had. This was my first weekend back with lift ops and I saw most people were...

    We had a great night last night, making some severely large piles on the route from the bottom of HG to the base area, both via Gondolier and Coffee Run, as well as on First Time. Amazing what...

    Pretty much, from what I gather. GMVS will train on Inverness before the mountain opens to the public, but the demand isn't there for two separate (but connected) ski areas to be open before the...

    So looks like a couple cold nights of snowmaking this week was all it took to open up Lower DS/Lower Jester/Coffee Run AND Stein's. I'd say this is the most trails we've had open for Thanksgiving...

    Just shut down... temps bumped up to above 30 degrees. But prior to that, we got some good base on Lower DS/Lower Jester/Coffee Run. Still will require more runtime, though. Same with Stein's. We...

    I believe they are waiting to push out Downspout and Jester, letting it drain out first. That may be on the push list for tonight. There's nothing wrong with HG. I rode it Friday night. I believe...

    SB/Fling is all towers. We hit it hard when it was cold and is a fairly easy run to maintain, providing the wind is good.

    We're offline until Thursday night, when we're back at it when temps...
