March 6, 9:14 AM

Bit of a delayed start this morning, but Ptarmigan, Hooter, & Porcupine are now open. There was an accident blocking Douglas Highway and employees couldn't make it up earlier this morning. Black Bear will open later this morning. It’s 28° at the summit with SE winds 13 knots; 33° at the base. Today is gorgeous with partly cloudy skies and snow showers forecasted. We just had a 16-day run with 96” of snowfall. It started snowing again yesterday (day 17) and really picked up in the late afternoon. Today is day 18, and there’s now 8” of new snow at the Powder Patch and 3.1” at the base! Fresh coat of powder today! Groomed trails: Muskeg, Dolly Varden, Stickleback, Trickster, Sneaky, Sourdough, Ego, Lower Hilary’s, Lower Spruce Chute, Log Jam, Easy Bowl, Williwaw, Grubstake, Sluice Box, Otter Slide, Motherlode. Eaglecrest is open Wed-Sun. The bar is open Fri-Sun. Eagle’s Nest restrooms are closed today for maintenance. Today’s thought: “Fix the heel. Fix the problem. Just kidding. Today is National Telemark Ski Day! Bend the knee for some face shots.”
