  • General Comments: The weather did what it wanted to on Thursday, and there's nothing we can do about that. But at the end of the day it was dumping snow, and nobody's going to kvetch about that! With a forecast of continued precipitation all night, we're looking at yet another Fresh Tracks Friday. Top that off with a forecast of sunshine for the morning, and we're looking at a fun bluebird day. If that sounds good, get yourself a spring pass for $139, or grab our current advance-purchase online deal: 2 tickets and a $25 food voucher deal for $99. Thinking about your plans for the weekend? Join us for Mazotfest on Saturday - it's a fun race that benefits our avalanche dog program. PUPPIES!!!!! And if you're scheming to be a better skier or rider, sign up for our steeps clinics on Saturday or our Telemark clinic on Sunday. Enjoy the rest of the day, and we'll see you up here soon!
  • Road Conditions: Wet roads. Carry chains or traction tires, slow down and drive carefully. Check Tripcheck for updates. Studded tire removal deadline was 3/31.
