Today was tremendous. We had 9" new and 16" from the storm. More is heading our way tonight and tomorrow. It was a big day for the ski patrol. They were prepping trails for opening and doing a lot of avalanche work. There was plenty of ski cutting, packing, and explosives work. We saw several very small slides, a decent sized slide in South Chute on Slalom Slope, and a HUGE AVALANCHE on Pali stretching from Main Street to the 2nd Alley.
The snowcat drivers have done a bunch of packing all over the mountain. Tonight should be another big night for them. Our next trails to open will be Wrangler, Lenawee Parks, Humbug, Powerline, and Cornice Run/West Wall. We may see some of those trails open Wednesday. As you have seen in the past, we may open a trail for a couple hours to let the snow get packed. We then may close it for the evening and let it set up and stiffen up over night. Just a tip, take it for what it is worth, but I would ski here Wednesday and pay attention to where the ski patrol is working.
