Montezuma Bowl will open Saturday. You can expect extraordinary conditions. One of the most frequent questions I get is "When will Montezuma Open?" My typical answer is when we have a 40ish" base. It does vary from year to year and some years it has taken us to the 45+" range to get open. Today we have a 35" base and this will be one of our best Zuma openings. The way the snow has fallen this year (amount, duration, wind direction) has been absolutely ideal for Montezuma Bowl. As I say that, it has also been ideal for Pali and pretty much the rest of the mountain.
Look to ski Miner's Glade, Independence, Shining Light, Columbine, and the 14ers. The way the snow is I expect our progression of trail openings back there to move along quickly.
