Well it’s official... the Sailer Gondola is open today along with some more Sailer and Second runs! Wonderful news for those that are here or coming this weekend.

As I write this the sun is shining, temperature at the base of -6 and very light winds. Today should remain relatively calm as far as winds go with the sun out most of the day and no snow anticipated. Yesterday was on and off snow fall most of the day but the windy conditions in the afternoon and evening hours didn’t make it much fun out there at all. The main gondola was sporadic in operation most of the afternoon too but if you were fortunate to make it to the Second runs you literally had the mountain to yourself. The runs were in great shape and should remain so today.

The clouds may roll in tonight without bringing and snow with them and the temperatures over the weekend should gradually sink to the -10 degree range with the winds increasing somewhat bringing the wind-chill down to -20.

Have a great sunscreen day.
