Today remained cold through the afternoon, and clouds quickly rolled in as the clock ticked past noon. We were surprised to see some freezing rain that almost resembled snow nearer to the top of the hill. Maybe we'll get an April miracle as we prepare for our last day of lift service tomorrow. Ullr, if you're listening, please?

Today we'll be skiing and riding on 9 trails serviced by 2 lifts, both on Stateside. We plan to run the Jet Triple at 8:30 AM, and the Taxi Quad at 8:00 AM today. Both lifts close at 4:00 PM this evening.

THIS JUST IN: we got in touch with Ullr, and to make up for not giving us the 9” needed to make it a 500” season, ski or ride with us for one last hurrah TOMORROW for just FIVE DOLLARS. No, you’re not hallucinating. Buy your $5 lift ticket over at Stateside Customer Service, and we’ll see you at The Jet for first chair. All proceeds will go to the Flake Foundation to support local causes and events.

TRAM AND SPRING LIFT UPDATE: The Tram has closed for the winter season. The upgrade project is underway and the Tram is scheduled to re-open this summer. Stay tuned for video updates of the $5 million project throughout the spring.

"We're going to ski until...
well, until were tired of skiing."

That was a great line, I read it in the ski report here Friday morning.

Seems like my job is just about done here for the year. Allow me a pat on the back , to my own back, for underestimating just about every snowstorm this winter.. including last Friday.

What a year!

Though there were a few rather low, low points.. but more high points that were really high. And I think it will go down as a memorable season for so many deep powder days. And outside of a few frigid days, mostly Saturdays, it was a rather WARM AND SNOWY WINTER.

Easter weekend features a warming trend once again, classic spring conditions Saturday, a few fast groomer runs, then perfect sunshine and corn snow by midday, then fading sunshine late in the day. Raindrops Saturday night should be just about done by sunrise Sunday. We may be left with some clouds and fog though. Let's hope we can burn it off, allowing for a brighter midday, possibly with sunshine, and a high temperature 60° or better.

Rain showers go by again Sunday night, as new cold comes in on Monday. That means more beautiful spring skiing with sub-freezing temperatures at night, and warming Monday & Tuesday. We may have some rain showers come through mid-week, with a slight chance of a change back to snow showers before next weekend.

It is a pretty tough call for next weekend as some weather guidance shows wet; some show white, and some shows just mild and dry.
Let's root the latter.

I guess my job may not be done just yet after all.. if are going to ski into May, I should try and update next week.

Especially because there appears to be an opportunity for one more powder day, somewhere between April 22nd and 25th.

And why not? Every time we declare winter down, it gets back up and shows its strength. 

We love this weather!

Don't forget the sunscreen..
