La Nina Forecast

Winter is here!

After a hot summer and a gorgeous, color-filled fall we are back to our winter white. October's snow held its ground at the summit, and in this first week in November we've had nearly two feet of snow. It's got us all a bit giddy, which we all were anyway after forecasters declared a little weather phenomenon named La Niña-- you remember her right? When her name is called she visits us often and she’s an overpacker—always stuffing her luggage with extra snow.

The forecast for the winter is La Niña (see map) which calls for above average snow this winter. We’re officially, unofficially counting—meaning we are keeping track of the snow every day this month, however without our snow reporters here (they start in December) we will not report daily, however we will post here occasionally so feel free to check here or our weather page!

All this snow is quite welcome as we close in on Opening Day—Thursday, December 7. We’re very excited for this season! Well, we’re always excited but this year will be awesome as we celebrate our 70th Anniversary with a few special events. Plus we’ve moved Chair 5 to the East Rim, and yes we expect to have it ready for Opening Day. You will notice a few changes in the village because Ed & Mully’s Bar & Grill and the Bierstube were remodeled and look awesome.

But I digress—so far in November it’s snowed 50 percent of the time—and we have a month to go before opening. I hope you are as stoked as we are!

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.


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
