General Comments
Misty mountain conditions this morning will make way for mostly cloudy skies by this afternoon, with just a trace of precipitation in the forecast. Upper mountain is now looking unlikely due to the current weather. A touch of freezing fog overnight has left us with a few icy spots on the drive, so be prepared for slippery surfaces on the way up here, and limited visibility until the fog burns off. It's also National Gourmet Coffee Day, so consider working a coffee break into your routine today if you're in the mood to celebrate. We'll see you up here soon!

January is National Ski Safety Month
And it’s a great time to remember and follow rule #3 of the Responsibility Code:
You must not stop where you obstruct a trail, or are not visible from above.  

We're still hiring! Come join our awesome team. Get yourself a season pass and a base rate of $15-$23/hour for entry level jobs.
