Some Sun and Blue Sky to Start the Year

After a long spell of cloudy/snowy weather, it’s easy to forget how much a sunny day can make a difference to the skiing. Today, we were reminded in spades, as an early morning haze cleared and revealed a beautiful bluebird day for all to enjoy.

Sunny weather is also enjoyed by the avalanche control team, as they can move through alpine terrain to do their control work quickly, rather than feeling their way slowly through white-out conditions. The faster they can move, the sooner well all get to enjoy the terrain that has not yet opened. As for soon-to-open alpine terrain, stay tuned – I’ll post a state-of-the-run update shortly, explaining how far along each run is, and what it’ll take to get these places open.

As for now, below are some photos from today, in case you missed it (or want to re-live it!):

    It looks like some of your trail crew forgot to switch their flat light lenses back to mirrored for the blue-bird day… Squinting all day is never fun!
