MID-JANUARY UPDATE

This past weekend was beyond a January thaw, it was seemingly April out there on the slopes. We saw a number of skiers sporting their Hawaiian shirts and shorty shorts making their way down the mountain. We are happy to report that our snowpack survived the two fifty degree consecutive days! As New England skiers and riders we remain eternally optimistic.

Our incredibly talented Mountain Operations team had the snow re-surfaced for Monday mornings opening and improved on it even more for today. The forecast and snow report is looking bright, as temperatures are returning to normal. Wednesday and Thursday night appear to be in the single digits. These temps will allow our die-hard snowmaking team to build our base and re-open more terrain. Mother Nature is going to provide some natural snow to boot. Currently 3 inches forecasted on Wednesday night into Thursday morning and 8 inches starting up late morning Saturday into Sunday. 

Be sure to check our Web Cam featuring a new Patrol Setting (scheduled 9am to 3pm daily) that changes point of view every 30 seconds and gives you a nice overview of several aspects on our two summits. This upcoming Saturday and Sunday is Martin Luther King weekend, tell all of your friends about our FOOD DRIVE taking place on Monday, January 20th. Bring (5) non-perishables and receive a $59 Adult Day Ticket or a $47 Junior/Teen/Senior Day Ticket. All food donated will go to our local food pantries in Danbury and Bristol.

Ski you on the slopes!
