Lenawee Will Open Friday

Lenawee Mountain Lift will open tomorrow, Friday October 25 about mid-morning. The chairlift will serve Lenawee Face and Dercum's Gulch. As the photos show, this will be an exceptional opening. The timing of this year's Upper Mountain Opening could not have worked out better. Streamflows, reservoir levels, and temperatures have been ideal for the last 2 weeks. This is also a very early upper mountain opening.  I believe the earliest since a legendary early winter back in the early 1960's. Tomorrow's opening will be about 2-3 weeks ahead of what we have experienced since the installation of snowmaking in 2002.
