  • General Comments: Good afternoon! We enjoyed another Friday with fresh snow on the ground, and sunshine streaming down. Last night's snowfall laid down very nicely, making for quality turns all over the mountain. Thanks to some morning sunshine, storm recovery went quickly, and we had the upper mountain for your shredding pleasure. Just another Fresh Tracks Friday!

    Plans for the weekend? Tomorrow is Mazotfest, a race for the avalanche puppies. Also tomorrow, we have steeps clinics. On Sunday, we have Telemark clinics. Tele is a tricky sport. A few pointers will take you a long way, so sign up now and free your heels from your mind. Speaking of signups, Pond Skim registration is open. Have a great day!

  • Road Conditions: Icy in spots. Chains Required. Traction tires allowed in place of chains on vehicles under 10,000 GVW and not towing. Check Tripcheck for updates. Studded tire removal deadline was 3/31.
