It Was 4 Inches At Report Time, But...........

At 5 AM this morning our Snow Safety Forecaster reported 4 inches of new snow. It hasn't stopped snowing since. Our Base Area crew has been shoveling, plowing and snow blowing for hours. The Lift Ops crew is getting all the lifts ready. The Ski Patrol is already out there ski cutting and packing. The breakfast burritos are ready.

We are in a major transition period. We are expecting the snow to continue all day and into tonight. Sunday we should see a little sunshine, but by Sunday night we are expecting the next weather event to roll in. I can't brag about the grooming today because it is totally buried in new snow. Norway Lift will open at 9 AM and, who knows, if the snow keeps up we may have some afternoon surprises.

I suggest you go skiing.

This will be a very nice holiday.

Why does ABASIN clear snow stake in AM instead of at closing? A little deceiving to me. If it snows all day today and you get 8" till 4 and nothing after that... Next morning you look at snow stake and expect Pow day, get there and all been skied from day before. Most areas clean at 4 so you can see what fell overnight. Just my 2 cents. Love your blog Al and Love ABASIN! The center of the world IMO.
