Took four runs in Zuma this morning. The total snowfall the last six days is 18". That has made a tremendous difference in Montezuma Bowl. The snowcats have made it to the bottom of the lift. To open we really need a good groomed blue run top to bottom. We are getting close to that. The cat drivers have covered a lot of ground. The Patrol has done a significant amount of avalanche work in West Zuma Bowl. Of course the question of the day is "When?" I think I would have to say one good storm will do it now. Let's keep our eyes on those weather forecasts and daily snow reports.
