February 28, 1:11 PM

Wild day up here! Lots of snow and wind! Black Bear is now closed because of the gusts. Ski Patrol is also doing some grounds maintenance so we can bring in a groomer tomorrow and clear out the snow from under the chairlift towers by the Drifter trail. As of this morning, we had 15" in 24 hours and 72" in the last 12 days. We are closed Monday-Tuesday, and the parking lot will also be closed! So. Much. Snow! We have to dig out and all over the base campus and parking lots. If you drive up here, you'll have to park at the end of Fish Creek Road. The forecast shows A LOT more snow on the way! Temps look to be nice and cold too. We'll see everyone back here for an extra powdery Powder Wednesday! If you choose to hike, ski tour, or split board, KNOW BEFORE YOU GO! Eaglecrest is backcountry when we are not operating and the avalanche conditions are dangerous. Today’s thought: “No one ever died from sleeping in an unmade bed.” Erma Bombeck.
