Deep thoughts by Big Dave**:


11:00am It has started snowing again up here with temperatures in the upper 20's. The groomers are in the best shape of the season today and off groomed things have really softened up. Get out of work early and start your weekend with some turns this afternoon.

8:00am A quiet start to the day up here. Visibility is a bit in and out at the summit but the snow should be nice and soft, and the forecast looks good for today.

6:00am It is amazing how quickly the skiing can get good around here with only a few inches of new snow. Snow is expected today and all the way through the weekend so expect to find some great turns this morning and hopefully some new terrain opening in the next few days.

The corduroy should be really nice this morning. The machines have taken yesterday's snow and made a soft fresh surface for us to carve turns on. Enjoy some long cruisers on the new Flower Point Chair today, the snow over there always seems to be a little deeper.

All of a sudden by the end of yesterday the skiing off groomed was really fun. Things are starting to soften up around the resort. By the end of the weekend off groomed conditions should be great, just in time for the Holidays.

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
