Norway Trail and Lift

We had a beautiful morning with a very thick two inches falling between 5 AM and opening at 9 AM. The sun popped out off and on for a few hours and, through the mid to late afternoon, period snow squalls blew through. Light snow is falling now. Friday should be sunny with snow in play again Saturday.

With our new snowmaking infrastructure on Norway, we have made a fair bit of snow on the trail. The Ski Patrol has led a very effective packing program there to compliment the snowmakers' work. Tonight the snow cat drivers are going to do a major winch project and in the morning we hope to see some very wide corduroy from the Summit to Dercum's Gulch. My fingers are crossed for some good, good skiing. On top of that, look for Norway Lift to open Saturday. It will run weekends and holidays until sometime in May.
