We have great news on the grooming front. For the first time this season, a snowcat made it to the bottom of Zuma Lift. Each year this event is a tremendous benchmark in our Montezuma Bowl snowfarming and snow management. The drivers have substantially compacted Columbine, Larkspur and Shining Light. There is still a tremendous amount of cat work to do but....................this is a very big deal. The forecast shows more unsettled weather over the next several days. More snow mixed with more compaction means good skiing heading our way.
Regarding the terrain where the snowcats don't go, we are making good progress in the Western half of the Bowl. Patroller Hagadorn is reporting good snow and good skiing in Long Chute. The pieces are coming together.
Who knows, we may have a holiday treat for everyone.
