Deep thoughts by Carl*:

10:30 a.m. Update: It's a beautiful day up here! The groomers are still crisp and the off-piste conditions aren't too shabby either. Even though the sun is shining, it's still a bit nippy up top. Bundle up and get on up here!

6:00 a.m. Report:  Fun fact: Snow dances still work in spring.

The proof is in the last few days with 14 inches of new snow to start out the season of bloom. It still feels like midwinter conditions up top and if you've been up here in the last few days you already know that some parts of the mountain have been receiving consistent coatings of fresh snow every few hours since Sunday evening. We're expecting some warmer temperatures down low today so mixed precipitation is possible, but it's going to be a great day to stay up high and seek out the stashes. There are plenty of fresh turns to be had up here, the snowpack feels revitalized and we'll be carrying on through March loving every minute of it!

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
