And We Went Skiing

We did finally open. About 100 cars showed up and people enjoyed some deep, deep, deep snow. My phone/camera battery quit working long ago so no photos. It has been an exciting and very challenging 36 hours around here. The reward was snow about as good as it gets.

......And there will be plenty of great skiing tomorrow and the day after and the day after that and.........

Great job guys, and kudos to CDOT and CAIC, and the A Basin ski patrol. I was skiing A Basin on Tuesday when I walked to my car to get something and an A Basin staff member informed me that the mountain was closing. He was super polite and super apologetic. I told him, no worries - the weather does what it does and we need to remain safe, and that there's no need to waste energy getting negative over something we can't control: the weather. I wished him well. Despite an early closure, I think that we'll be reaping the rewards for weeks and months to come! Stay safe and stay positive! Skiing A Basin Monday and Tuesday was amazing and some of the best turns I've had in years! Keep up the great work guys. Your staff is amazing.

Hi Alan
Thanks as always for the great blog and all the hard work you guys do to keep the legend open for such a long season.
I am wondering how this year is stacking up against historical averages and records. i know you have access to previous snow data. And when was the last time you guys reported 18 inches twice in a week like you did a few weeks back? What a great season, thanks to the patrol and stay safe.
