Today's Information

February 19, 2018

 

Good Monday Morning To Everyone, 

 

Today’s Operating Plan:  First of all I would like to thank everyone for all the hard work yesterday in accommodating our guests.  It has been a several years since we have seen a day as busy as yesterday, and all operations went quite well.  Congratulations go out to everyone.  Today the mountain has groomed up very nicely, and our surface condition is a combination of packed powder with loose granular.  Our average base depth is 20” to 28”.  All terrain was groomed last night except for the moguls on Exhibition.  We have 23 of 23 slopes and trails open with all 8 lifts in operation.  The terrain parks continue to be in great shape.  Today we have 9 rails, 6 boxes, and 9 snow features in Jib Junction.  In Park Place we have 1 rail, 2 boxes, and 5 snow features.  On the top of Velvet we have 2 boxes, 1 rail, and a tunnel in that location.   

 

Whitetail Adventure Snow Tubing:  Whitetail Adventure Snow Tubing is open today from 9:00 AM until 10:00 PM for the Presidents’ Day Holiday Weekend.  From Tuesday through Thursday Snow Tubing will be open from 4:00 PM until 10:00 PM.  We currently have all 16 lanes open as well as Kiddie Tubing.          

 

Weather:  Currently the temperature is 38° at the base and 34° at the summit.  The forecast for today calls for partly cloudy skies with a high temperature of 52°.  There is a chance of some very light rain later this afternoon.  Tonight our meteorologist is calling for cloudy skies with a low temperature of 41°.
