Rare April Weekend
As you may have heard by now, we are offering a rare April weekend of skiing and riding this Saturday and Sunday. Originally, we were hoping to open Friday but with snow conditions we have right now, it's going to take our grooming crew the rest of this week, including most of Friday to get the snow in suitable shape. On Monday night, after the rain we had, the temperature dropped from about 60 degrees to 20 degrees in just a few hours. Needless to say, it was a little firm out here on Tuesday and today with that sudden of a temperature change in addition to the rain. Now, we have this impending spring storm on our door step for tomorrow and Friday. Even though we could receive 6+ inches of snow, the heavier and wetter snow that is being predicted is not normally the kind of snow that makes for great powder turns. The conditions will be better this weekend if we groom what snow we do receive into the existing base. It should be a great weekend to get out here and make your last turns of the season. I will see you on the slopes!
