Dummy Derby Builders, a Study

You know how they say some people look like their pet? I wonder if there exists a similar correlation between builders of dummies and the dummies they create. The 2015 Dummy Derby is set for Saturday, April 4, and if you are someone who would...

Deep thoughts by Erick**:


11:00am The sun is bright and it is a gorgeous day! Things are starting to soften, and should be prime in about an hour and a half. 

Moe-mentum is the run of the day, with excellent grooming and smooth turns!

Be cautious as you ski Inspiration, the grooming on the upper portion is very good, but as you descend to the junction of Hogan's/Hogan's East the grooming stops, and becomes un-groomed down to Russ's Street.

This afternoon will be beautiful, so get your Monday chores done and come up for some beautiful weather, and soft turns!

8:15am Gorgeous morning so far, with a few high clouds floating overhead, and Sun in the sky. Come up for a great start to Monday.

6:15am Today should be fairly mild and nice throughout the day. We expect to see temperatures at the Summit near 50 degrees, so things should soften fairly quickly today. 

With a partly to mostly sunny sky, visibility should be a non-issue, and the vies will be available for the taking.

Everyday is a new story this time of year a the resort. With changing conditions and coverage, always try to contain your reckless abandon as you slide around the mountain. Spots that may have been good the last time you skied may not be as solid now.

Enjoy yourself and explore all of the different conditions here, from the top of Flower Point to the Base Lodge.  Still lots of skiing to be had!

And one aspect that will help you get as much skiing as possible, today should be fairly mellow as far as crowds and lift-lines go. It is a Monday, and that means less people and lots of space.

Do not forget about all the great events that are scheduled for the end of the season! This coming weekend is the annual Brewfest, taking place in the Village, followed immediately by the Dummy Derby, which is one of the most fun events, with a far amount of chaos and carnage.  Check out the Events page for all the information.

Less than two weeks left to fill your turn quota, so don't wast any time!

Ski ya out there!

**Low elevation snow conditions have prompted the temporary closure of Chairs 2 & 8 and selected lower mountain runs until surface conditions improve. Some runs listed as open may be partially closed. Chair 3 is running and the Fishbowl Terrain Park is 100% open. We still have plenty of ski-able top-to-bottom terrain, as well as fun, spring skiing on the upper mountain and the north side (Chairs 7 & 11). The Bigfoot T-Bar will stay open weekdays in lieu of Chair 8. Reduced ticket pricing is in effect.** 

 

***Special Ski Patrol notice: Please ski with caution as Spring-like conditions exist, both on and off-groom. With changing coverage, marked and unmarked hazards exist. Ski with care and in control. Hellroaring Basin and Chair 8 will be closed until further notice **

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
