    Timberline To Open Palmer For Skiing This Weekend

    Weather permitting, Timberline will be opening Palmer on weekends for advanced skiing and snowboarding starting Oct. 7 and 8. Lift tickets will be available for purchase at Timberline’s Wy’East Day Lodge. Get your 2017/2018 Timberline Season Pass and use it this weekend!

    Early season snow conditions are exceptionally variable with the possibility of ice in the mornings and thaw in the afternoon. Skiers and riders are urged to use extreme caution. We strongly recommend Palmer for advanced skiers and snowboarders only.

    Stay tuned to Timberline Lodge Conditions for future operating times and lift schedule.
    Enjoy and post some pics. It will likely be only Palmer to the mid station, but it will be great to get out this early. Think snow.

    Yup I mentioned they are going for the first open steal (post 34) after A Basin mentioned opening in about a week.

    A-Basin and Loveland look very, very close to opening in the next few days. Was snowing this morning too with temps in the low teens.

    2017/2018 Days

    A-Basin - 10/13

    Loveland Pass - 10/6

    2016/2017 Days - 34 (inc. 10 BC)
    2015/2016 Days - 57 (inc. 2 BC)
    2014/2015 Days - 58
    2013/2014 Days - 47 (inc. 6 BC)

    I'll tell you where. Someplace warm. A place where the beer flows like wine. Where beautiful women instinctively flock like the salmon of Capistrano. I'm talking about a little place called Aspen.

    Plus they made snow all day yesterday through Tuesday morning before day time get unfavorable. Hopefully that does the trick!

    BTW this cold air is moving to the Northeast and I bet Killington goes for it next week as well as Sunday River.

    Yes, but it will modify before it gets here and not be anywhere near as cold when it does. K and SR may have a window next week, I don't see them trying the very narrow to likely rain this week.

    There's some hope for next Monday night-Wednesday morning but it looks marginal just to make snow...impossible to open.
    2017-2018 1 Day and counting...
