Yippee! It's snowing like a big dog this morning. 6" so far in the base area with mucho more on the way. We want all our guests to be safe getting here so please be very cautious on the roads as slick conditions may exist. Our snow base depth is based on natural and manmade snow on the current open runs. A little more snow accumulation is going to be necessary to get everything else open but our snowmakers are doing their best to get main runs from the top open for tomorrow. Merry Merry!
