Comments CommentsSnow report was a bit generous (18 trails open). Four ways down from the top of the triple, plus two ways off the platter pull. No signs of life for the double chair (some new unpainted siding on the base terminal with a large bulldozer parked in front of it).

Only snowmaking run off the triple was Juniper, which was decent. Other runs were Galloping Goose to Goose Pitch (the latter was ungroomed/bulletproof), Spruce to Black Beauty, and Beauty Loop. Each were groomed with some thin spots and rocks. Lower Black Beauty was a little tricky due to virtually all of the traffic funneling into it. Some golf balls, as to be expected after the thaw/freeze.

Off the platter, Ninow was okay, but Jubilee had some thin spots. The only snowmaking hose I saw was in this area, which leads me to believe there are no immediate plans to make snow anywhere else on the main mountain.

Triple chairlift was generally ski-on, but had skiers on almost every chair.

Hopefully we get some significant snowfall so that more can open.
