Waking up to a moderate snowfall here is rather exciting. Currently cloudy conditions with quite a bit of snow falling. Temperatures today will be in the -8 to -10 range. Yesterday was on/off light snow showers which did start accumulating by mid morning, however most of what we got came overnight. Today and tomorrow will hopefully bring over 40cm of snow.

Limited runs are open on the mountain and with the Olympic trials going on this weekend you can expect even fewer runs open. The new snow will certainly help overall conditions but I’m wondering when the Sailer and main gondola will open. Conditions aren’t that bad but since the heavy rain we had last weekend I haven’t been able to get anywhere near the top of the mountain to take a closer look. We’re all hoping its going to reopen before the weekend arrives.

Conditions for the next few day are looking good with cloudy skies, steadily rising temperatures and a lot of snow.

Great time to be out there right now.
