Comments CommentsYesterday, we visited Lost Valley for their last evening of weekday operations for the season. Thanks to their impressive snowmaking system, they are the last small ski areas operating in the state. They'll be operating this Saturday and Sunday, and then they'll reopen for one more day next Saturday. From Chair 1, Deer Run was open, leading to Foxhole, Bobcat, & Big Buck. From Chair 2, Squirrel Run & Bear were open. Most open trails still had wall to wall coverage in most sections, although Deer Run, Foxhole, & Squirrel Run all had narrow choke points. It looked like they had done quite a bit of snow farming from closed trails to increase coverage on the open terrain. Their mountain ops team really is one of the best around.

The mountain was far less busy than a normal weeknight, and there was never a wait for either chairlift. Temperatures were in the 20s and low 30s, and snow conditions were a mix of loose and frozen granular. It was an enjoyable evening of skiing, and it was nice to see them putting in the effort to stay open for as long as they are able. This weekend's storm should help them nicely.
