We are holding onto the snow as best we can with the wet weather. Fortunately, we are supposed to start receiving snow around noon today, and are forecast to receive up to 6 inches based on the Winter Weather Advisory in our area. It will also get cold following today’s snow, which will help refreeze some of the wetness on the trails. Since it is supposed to be damp this morning leading up to the snow, we ask that you only ski on the Blizzard trail and practice area today. Despite a few bare spots, there are still some great stretches of snow, and skiing is always better than not skiing!

Our base is still holding up remarkably well with only a few bare spots, but with rain in the forecast today, for the sake of preservation, all trails will be closed for skiing today except for the Blizzard Park. The good news is that AFTER this rain, we have three to five inches of SNOW forecasted for tomorrow. Typically, when snow follows rain, we have to let the base and ground have time to re-freeze , and so we expect to keep the trails closed tomorrow (Wednesday) and then plan to be back out skiing again on Thursday on fresh new snow! We will keep you posted.
A bad day for skiing can be a great day for shopping! The February Sale is in full force with 40-50% off most soft goods, plus a huge sale on cross country skis and boots, including Fischer Speedmax Skate and Classic skis for $499, Rossignol Xium WCS Skate skis for $427, Fischer RCS Skate skis for $399, and Salomon S-Lab Classic Cold skis for $299.
Do your snow dance!
