Very Positive Terrain Update

Just took a ski tour with Tim, Mark L, and Tony C. In addition to skiing some groomers, we went out the Cornice Run, up and over the top of Pali, and down Slalom Slope. Lots of great news. The Saturday storm has been a really big boost. The cat drivers have covered a lot of ground packing all the runouts in Lenawee Parks as well as driving down the Cornice Run, over the top of Pali, and down Griz Ridge. With a forecast of 1-3" for tomorrow's storm, we have a very favorable W-NW wind predicted. Since there has been no wind since the last storm, there is lots of loose snow to our West in The Beavers. I think the good wind with a little new snow could really help Cornice, West Wall, Griz Ridge, Slalom Slope, Powderkeg, and Lenawee Parks. I know the snow this winter has been a little discouraging, but we have taken some positive steps recently. The Ski Patrol has opened Upper Powerline and they did some quality directed skiing in Lenawee Parks and Upper Exhbiition. The groomed surfaces today were outstanding. Slalom Slope was really good although not quite deep enough for the masses yet. A little bit of snow and it will be phenomenal. Hang in there. We are not too far from making a very positive turn in lifts and terrain.

Thanks for opening Lenawee for us. I wouldn't call it epic by any means, but it was really nice to make some turns on some fresh snow. Took my Dad up to ski for the day and he said it was easily the best place he's skied this year.

I guess we don't have an ETA on Cornice Run and West Wall?

What about Montezuma Bowl, when do you think are you going to open it?
