Snow Report

Reported on Oct 1st, 2014 at 03:52PM by Small Riley*

Patrol: 406.862.2940

Happy October!

It's official: We have the best Season Pass Holders in the industry! You rock! While some of you still insist on waiting until the last minute to buy your pass, at least you know you may have to wait in line, or keep calling because the phones are busy, etc. and it was fun to see you at our in town sale events or up here at the Base Lodge.

We thank you all for buying your pass and now we can all start thinking about winter!

So a few things have happened since the last report...

1. We had our first significant snow, back on September 10th, that was fun!

2. SKI Magazine came out with there Annual Resort Guide and readers ranked us lucky #13!

3. We have a new weather station at the summit pumping out data on the hour! Take a look!

4. On Monday, September 22nd a helicopter placed all 17 lift towers for the new Flower Point lift!

We will write occasional reports here to let you know how things are prograssing up to Opening Day Saturday, December 6th.

In the meantime, please stay in touch on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and YouTube.

Enjoy the Fall!

Riley

Web Cams

Kapow!
Word from the top is that the DSL modem connecting the Summit cams to the Interwebs is fried. The Summit cams will be moved to our internal network “soon” (no more relying on DSL yay!), but as it is off season access to the summit is more limited so it may take some time. Thanks for your patience.
