Black Bear

I went for a very nice 5-Lift Tour this morning. After riding BMX, Pali, Lenawee, Lazy J and Zuma Lift, we finished the tour with a ski down Loafer and a hike out The Steep Gullies Hike Back Trail. Loafer was very good and I was delighted to have an excellent ski down Black Bear in Montezuma Bowl. The snow was packed, but still very carvable. Mostly, it was fun to ski.

Morning Light In Zuma

Here is a very nice image of the early morning light down at the bottom of Zuma Lift a few days ago. Thanks to Guy Warren for sharing it with me.

Some Fine Skiing In The Beavers

There certainly is some fine skiing to be found out in The Beavers. With all the snow, we have moved past the "Limited Opening" phase of The Beavers debut. They will be open regularly with more and more pieces to come. You might even see some skiing at the East Woods Gate. Remember, we have to complete avalanche mitigation in The Steep Gullies before we can open The Beavers each day. Also with such a big hike to finish the ski, they are closed a bit sooner. Check out the Terrain section of our website for up to the minute open/closed status.

After another good storm, we may have to start talking about the East Wall.

Storm skiing on Saturday.

Bluebird Day

I was able to enjoy a bluebird day off at The Basin today. Crystal clear skies and cool temperatures with soft snow, we enjoyed a couple of laps out in The Beavers. We hardly saw anyone except at Rendezvous Point and the Hike Back. There is a lot of great skiing to be found in the gladed areas. As we have received more snow, the area is getting packed out and the skiing is getting better all the time.

The Place Just Got Bigger

Montezuma Bowl opened today. The Beavers were open for most of the day. We just received 18 inches of snow in 3 days. The skiing was awesome. As expected, we are having a very busy holiday weekend. Thank you to all the people that carpooled, rode the bus, arrived early or arrived late. The extra terrain is great for spreading people around. The place just got bigger. We had a little bogie with an electrical problem on our new rope tow, but other than that, it was a fine Saturday. Thanks for coming.
