Today's Daily Snow Reporter Video



Deep thoughts by Big Dave**:


11:00am A few clouds have moved in but overall there is still plenty of sunshine. The groomers are smooth and fast this morning so get up here and enjoy.

8:00am The sun is out and the lifts will start running in a mere hour from now. Take advantage of the clear skies this morning and come get in some uncrowded runs.

6:00am Today is going to start out similar to yesterday with cold temperatures, a light wind out of the North, and clear skies. It looks like this afternoon clouds will increase and snow is in the forecast for tomorrow.

Today should be another fantastic day of groomer skiing. There will be over 50 runs with smooth corduroy just waiting for you to carve up. Extra runs today; Ptarmigan Bowl, Corkscrew, Powder Trap, Upper Langley, Chute, and everything on T-Bar 2 and Chair 11.

I know off groomed conditions have been pretty firm for a while now but there is good coverage out there and plenty of fun to be had. Ski under control and use caution as you explore the Mountain.

Sunday Fun Day! 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
