MOUNTAIN REPORT

March 21, 1:04 PM

It remains balmy out today with outstanding spring skiing conditions all over the mountain. The temperature at the base of the mountain is 43 degrees with calm winds, 48 degrees at the top of the mountain with a light ESE wind at 10 knots. It’s mostly cloudy today, we had a light drizzle this morning. Temps are in the mid 40s. Tomorrow will be more of the same. The snow is still lots of fun. Conditions are firm in the morning, becoming more soft and forgiving later morning and afternoon.

The Porcupine, Hooter, and Ptarmigan chairlifts start loading at 9 AM and run until 4:00 PM. The mountain ops crew is keeping busy grooming what they can for our pleasure, and those runs include Sneaky, Sourdough, Ego, and the Porcupine Learning area.

Here’s your inspirational thought for the day – “Don’t give up on your dreams so soon … sleep longer.” Have a great day.
