General Comments
Good morning! It's been a wonderful night for grooming up here - good visibility, tolerable wind, and cooperative snow. Honestly, the night's been like that perfect burrito - you know, when you put in just the right amount of fililng and it wraps up perfect. That's what we've prepared for you today. Lots and lots of lovely hardpack and packed powder corduroy, the first day of HRM for the year, a couple more K at Nordic, and additional hours of operation. Yup, stuffing in those extra hours didn't burst that burrito either. Still perfect. We'll be adding toppings as the day goes on; the forecast contains swiftly dropping temps and a few inches of snow by sunset. As the weather moves in, Cascade may move out. Fingers crossed it stays running... Lift tickets today are $79. We can't quite recall the price of the burrito, but there's still time to come up and find out. See you soon for excellent groom and a fresh topping of snow just in time for Meadows After Dark!
