Snowy morning.

It started snowing again right around 5:00 AM this morning and we picked-up a quick inch before things died down at 7:00 AM. The bigger news is the 6" we expect by Friday, which will be a nice addition to the 33" we've received so far this week.

We have picked up close to THREE FEET of new snow in the last week and the mountain's skiing and riding like mid-winter. If you haven't made the trip up yet, it's worth the drive. We'll be expanding our terrain offerings today to include beginner and novice trails with the opening of the Taxi quad and the Stateside moving carpet. With those lifts come trails for all ability levels.

NOTE: The Haynes will be closed to the public this afternoon to allow for race training. If you want those turns, get them in the morning.

ANOTHER NOTE: The Queen's Highway is now open so you can ski/ride from Stateside to Tramside. You just have to take a shuttle back to Stateside as Perry Merrill has yet to open.

The snowmakers made their way up to Montrealer yesterday and plan to be there through Thursday. After they've buried that trail, their focus will turn to connecting Stateside and Tramside. Stay tuned later in the week for more info on that.

The Jet triple, Taxi quad and Stateside moving carpet started spinning at 9:00 AM this morning and last chair is scheduled for 4:00 PM.

Looking to make some holiday turns? Ski and waterpark vacations start at just $225/night for a family of four. Details here.

Lift ticket and season pass info is available at both Stateside and Tramside Customer Service locations.

Splicing Cables With Bonnie

By Andrew, on Wed, Nov 27, 2013

View/Hide Photos

It's no secret that nothing lasts forever (except the Grateful Dead's legacy), and time wears away even the most well-built structures. The key to consitent quality with any equipment requires continued service and care. While providing patrons with uphill access, the constant weight and perpetual rotations cause our chairlift cables to slowly stretch over time.  Fixed grip chairlifts like our Jet Triple, Taxi Quad and Bonaventure Chair can run for several decades without requiring any cable splicing, core replacement and tightening. Our cable service providers, Dale R. Walters' Mountain Wire Rope Service specialize in wire rope splicing, repairs and inspections. Certified throughout the U.S., Walters, and his son J.T. service about 135 different areas across the East and Midwest. But wire rope techs are a dying breed, in a trade that requires several thousands of miles on the road and many consecutive months away from home, on top of a physically demanding regime exposed to the elements. With the help of our Mountain Ops. crew, Walters' Mountain Rope Service removed a portion of the Bonaventure cable's nylon core and replaced it with a tight, new section that will service our skiers and riders for years to come.
