General Comments
The live Toyota cams tell the story - we’ve received too much warm rain in the base area to be able to operate on Friday. We will assess conditions tomorrow in anticipation of opening on Saturday, and announce it here by Friday afternoon.
We’ve received five-and-a-half inches of rain since Sunday, with an inch-and-a-half falling in just the last 12 hours. With temperatures in the base area in the mid-forties the rain has reduced our base from three feet last weekend to 14 inches this morning. With cooler (even normal) temps, this storm could have dropped five or more feet of snow!
We remain optimistic - we have a very favorable forecast for an epic snow season and as marathoners say - it’s not how you start, it’s how you finish!
We wish you all a Happy Thanksgiving - among those things we are thankful for are our loyal guests and an awesome team who love this mountain and the recreation it provides.
