April Showers Bring May........8" New 96" Base

Geez, are we going to hit a 100" base again? This morning's 8" new is a May treat. Showers are forecast for the next 24 hours. Looks like it might be one of those days with periods of intense squalls and then sunspots. Springtime at Arapahoe Basin. The photos were taken at 7 AM this morning.

Hey Al,

I don't think you responded to my question about summer skiing and whether you guys will down-load BMX and ski off of the Norway chair (like in the early season) or if you would keep on or two bottom runs open and ski off of Lenawee chair.

Thanks again,

Mike

Hey Mike,

Exactly how we ski in June can vary greatly depending on snowpack, runoff, weather, etc. Right now we think on June 19 we will be skiing to the bottom and still using Lenawee Mountain Chair. There are times when downloading BMX or using Norway may make the most sense. We will remain flexible and take the most logical steps. As always, we make a plan, monitor the operations, and modify as necessary.
