TODAYDec 18, 2014:
It is snowing this morning and we have already seen a skim coat of accumulation and we expect it to continue throughout the day. Forecasts are saying we should pick up a couple of inches out of this little system. We were pretty darn fortunate weather-wise yesterday as we saw some heavy fog but never any significant precipitation. The mist was thick enough to coat the man-made structures such as lift towers and chairs in a thin glaze. Fortunately for us the snow surface absorbed the moisture and we didn't lose any snow as temps hovered around the freezing mark. The surface conditions have firmed up a bit and are now best described as frozen granular. It would be disingenuous to say we're still enjoying hero conditions but the coverage would make you think the calendar read February. Today we plan to crank up the Single Chair & SunnySide Double from 9 AM until 3:45 PM with nearly 100% (Upper Paradise is Closed) of our main mountain terrain wide open!
