156 Inches Since December 5

Yes, we have had 156 inches of snow since December 5. November was fairly dry and warm. I know a few people were even a little discouraged. A dry November only means one thing.......we had a dry November. Mother Nature started snowing December 5 and it has hardly stopped since then. We are buried.

This has been a cycle of very notable proportions. We do track snowfall by month. Our single biggest month on record was January 1996 with 136 inches. So getting 156 inches in about 5 1/2 weeks is certainly one of biggest and most continuous snow events we have experienced. And we all know how good the skiing is.

Dave Camara took this photo on Slalom Slope this morning while enjoying 11 inches of new snow.

That is because me and Matt came out there on December 9. We have incredible snow karma :) btw, our next trip is the week of February 19 so plan accordingly!

Could you talk about the Norway lift a little? Do you still adjust the height of the lower terminal when you have big snow events?

"fairly warm and dry" is a nice & PC way of describing November. EXTREMELY dry & warm was our reality, and I think the polar opposite, the extremities to this ski season (freeze/melt cycles in Dec. & jan.) are really what make this season one for the books...

I think it is time to start making plans to be skiing @ Abasin on Jul 4th 2017.
