Hey Sam,

Though not impossible, I wouldn't count on Montezuma Bowl being open for Thanksgiving. The Bowl has been in the ski area for three years now. During those three years, we have had openings in December, January, and February. If I had to guess an typical opening, I would say the first half of January.

looks like plenty of enough snow for me! I believe a Wednesday opening would work best for my schedule

Hi Al, Looks like you have a group of dedicated snowhounds ready to go. Just another thought, I realize you moved the camera's off of the Black Mountain Express, would you please aim one back towards Pali. It adds to the total experience of the Area. Thanks again for being so in touch with your patrons, JS

loveland's telling everybody there on the final stretch and i saw there video and pics NOT GOOD! get the guns cranking man....we need to win it.+ take home the memory of beating the motivated loveland snowmaking crew.... today they had the snowcats out and running...(just to show you how much more they are ahead of they really are. i don't like being negative but the chances of a bay winning it are slim!meaning GET IT GOING.....ski season is here and were waiting.....

so close.... but also not.

question....it seems like on the webcams the snow up at snow plume refuge are saying that the snow doesn't melt up there... the high noon cam looks like the snow melts (in the day)every time it gets above 45F..is this true or not.. anyway.. how much footage do yuo have now..also the guy doing your snowmaking page made a typo and said " we have an opening day, as of yet" lol


keep it up.

Come on Al, I need your help! I just got out of a meeting with my HR department. Apparently they think I spend too much time looking at your web cams at work!

The suspense is not good for my career!

Help me out!
