Locals Snow Report from the Snowman
December 5th, 2022 @ 11:44 AM – Over the weekend lots of heavy wet snow came down (2+ feet) on top of the mid-ratio snow that fell on Thursday (2-3 Feet). Will be interesting to see what happens to the top once it clears and gets bombed and blasted.
In areas that don’t slide coverage will be great with a 59 to 98-inch base on the hill from Main Lodge to the top.
Lifts open this week 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 10, 11, 12, 16, 17, 22, G1, G2, and the Village Gondola (Weather Permitting). Little Eagle will reopen for the season on Friday morning. At this point, it looks like there will be pt cloudy skies for Tuesday morning so expect the top to open around mid-day.
I will be back out on the hill once things clear out and will post fresh photos a get you an updated video snow report.
