All Good News

There is nothing but good news on the A-Basin Front. 2+ feet of snow. Great snowmaking temperatures. Increased stream flow. We have a lot to work with right now. While we have plenty of employees, not every change will be seen instantly. There is a lot of snowcat work to do. The avalanche teams are all over the hill including working on Pali and the The Steep Gullies. The snowmakers are extremely focused on Lenawee Face and Dercum's Gulch. 

For tomorrow we should see Sundance opening. By the end of the week, we should have Lenawee Mountain Lift, Lenawee Face, Dercum's Gulch and Humbug open. Getting to the Summit is no small task. There is some tricky snowmaking and grooming required to make it happen. This storm gave us a GI-NORMUS boost. Once we are on the Summit, lots of openings will quickly follow.

As always, the comments this time of year can be very interesting. Remember, The Basin is all about fun. Riding and skiing is all about fun. We will be serving up a bunch of that fun in the coming days. Personally, I am celebrating. You should be too.

This storm was a beauty.
