Operational & Forecast Outlook: January 6th, 2019
Hey there skiers and riders! We hope you are enjoying the brand new year and have already made some progress on your resolutions. If your resolution was to ski or ride more, we have some incredible news for you.
While the beginning of 2019 has been less than stellar as far as the weather is concerned, we have still been making the best of it thanks to the hard work of our amazing snowmakers. In between these sporadic warming and cooling cycles, our snowmakers have been taking up every opportunity to create new snow across the mountain.
As of this post, temperatures are falling rapidly to below freezing, and are expected to reach the low teens by Monday morning. We expect this to be the first of many snowmaking windows in the coming days and you can expect our snowmakers to crank out a ton of snow during this time.
After a very minor warm up on Tuesday morning lasting through Wednesday morning, temperatures will fall significantly once again, potentially reaching single digit lows by Friday. This represents a huge opportunity as far as snowmaking is concerned and our snowmakers are champing at the bit to show off our systems strength during this window. What is more that next weekend’s weather also looks spectacular combined with this huge snowmaking window.
In the short term, don't forget that the second half of College Week begins this Monday. College students presenting valid college photo ID can receive a discounted lift ticket for only $33! College students looking to learn skiing and riding this week can also take advantage of our College Week Single Pak, offering a Group Lesson, Rental, and Hunter East lift ticket for only $49.
That’s is all we have for you at the moment but you can expect regular updates on which trails and terrain we will be making snow on next here on our blog as well as twice daily on our Snow Report.
See you out on the hill!
