Snow Conditions Report

12-22-2016 – Snow Report Update

Snow condition: The groomers area great machine groomed packed power with just about all runs getting groomed nightly during the holiday season. Your best bet for fresh groomed is to get in line just before the lifts open.

Off the groomers you will find some nice skier & snowboarder packed out snow. Some area’s are getting a bit firm now but every thing is still very turnable not to firm yet.

Enjoy the holiday season and get ready for lot’s of powder days ahead! Snowman out
