Every year I spend on skis I am reminded of how lucky I am. I know that I am very fortunate to live where I can be so close to a mountain and be healthy...

Today's Daily Snow Reporter Video



Deep thoughts by Big Dave**:


11:00am Today's word of the day is Groomerific. The corduroy is smooth and fast today as you cruise the slopes. The grooming staff has done an amazing job this season refreshing the mountain every night so we can have smooth runs every morning. The slopes are empty, the lift lines are non-existent, and the sun is doing everything it can to stay out.

8:00am The sun is starting to rise and we have clear skies here in the village. It looks like a little wispy cloud on the summit but that should burn off quick. This should be the start of another beautiful day up here.

6:00am This high pressure system seems to be holding on here for the next few days. Even though this means no new snow it has given us great views and some beautiful days on the mountain. Sunshine and temperatures in the high 20's is what we have to look forward to today.

The last 2 nights temperatures have been below freezing when the grooming crew hits the slopes which means the corduroy is getting better and better. Enjoy cruising the mountain in the sunshine today!

Off groomed things will once again be a bit set up this morning. The sunshine will help soften things up this afternoon so be careful and pay attention to conditions as you venture off groomed. Chair 8 and the Hellroaring Basin will remain closed today until snow conditions improve out there but we will once again be running T-Bar 2.

Enjoy What We Have, Carpe Diem, And Pray For Snow! Big Dave

Treewell Safety

Skiing and snowboarding off the groomed runs and in deep powder snow is one of the most exciting and appealing parts of our sport. If you decide to leave the groomed trails, you are voluntarily accepting the risk of falling into tree wells or deep snow and suffocating.

A deep snow or tree well accident occurs when a rider or skier falls into an area of deep unconsolidated snow and becomes immobilized. The more the person struggles, the more entrapped in the snow they become. Deaths resulting from these kinds of accidents are referred to as a NARSID or Non-Avalanche Related Snow Immersion Death. Fortunately, these types of accidents are preventable.

WHAT YOU CAN DO TO PREVENT TREE WELL & DEEP SNOW ACCIDENTS
1. Avoid Deep Snow & Tree Areas
2. Always Ski with a Partner and Keep Your Partner in Sight
3. Ski & Ride in Control and Defensively
4. Have a Plan to Survive
