MOUNTAIN REPORT

January 18, 3:53 PM

Conditions today are firm and frozen. The groomed trails were the only way to go and that terrain is limited due to our thin snowpack. Porcupine, Hooter, and Ptarmigan Chairlifts are running 9:00 AM to 3:30 PM, enjoy an additional 30 minutes with the increased daylight. Groomed runs today are Easy Bowl, Throat, Williwaw, Sneaky, Muskeg, Dolly Varden, and Stickleback.

For the tomorrow, Saturday, Black Bear Chairlift will not be running, and West Side & Middle Mountain terrain is closed. Given the current conditions, we strongly encourage everyone to ski to the groomed trails. The best route is from the top of Ptarmigan down through Easy Bowl.

The good news is that it’s snowing lightly tonight, and the forecast suggests it will get stronger Sunday & Monday. We’ve also been testing the new snowmaking pipeline and pump station. Currently, we have snow guns blowing all the way at the top of Sourdough! It’s super exciting to start seeing all the hard work pay off. Please keep an eye out for our ropes and signage. Check back tomorrow morning for updates on groomed terrain!

January is Learn To Ski & Snowboard Month. Please refer your non snow-sliding friends and family to the website for more information about our January Specials, Learn To Ski Weekend, and Learn To Adapt Day is this Sunday! Also, note that we have a recorded and updated snow conditions hotline. Dial (907) 790-2000, x2 for the general mountain conditions and x3 for the Nordic trail conditions.

Today’s thought reflects on the always accurate weather forecasts – “The trouble with weather forecasting is that it’s right too often to ignore it and wrong too often for us to rely on it.” Hmm, we better cross our fingers! Have a great day!
