Deep thoughts by Riley*:

Snow is on the way!

Cold mornings? Check! First snow of the season? Check! Changing out summer for winter? You betcha!

There’s plenty of time to do your snow dancing and sacrifices to Ullr so we can get lots of snow in time for Opening Day which is planned for Thursday, December 6. Until then we’re spending our free time getting out there to enjoy the incredible fall colors under our big blue sky.

That and prepping for the 2018/19 season. It’s kind of like what you do at home when you clean up the yard and prepare for winter. Or how you put away summer clothes and break out the winter ones. We’ll be taking bike carriers and gondola cars off Chair 1 and adding more chairs. We’ll replace summer wayfinding signs with their winter counterparts.

We’re also finishing up some bigger projects. The construction crew over at Ed & Mully’s has been busy working on Phase 2 of the remodel. For those of you who know the place, you may not recognize it and will be pretty stoked about the new look. For those of you who haven’t been yet, you’ll love it too—an excellent place to meet up for lunch or après ski.

In the marketing and sales department we are busy coming up with great deals as well as hitting the road attending ski and snowboard related events and other fun stuff.

If you are planning to come this winter and have questions, please contact us! We’re happy to help.

As we near Opening Day (again that’s Thursday, December 6) be sure to keep an eye on the webcams and weather forecast. Plus we’ll update this report once it starts accumulating sometime in November!

Until then… THINK SNOW!

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
