Sunday, April 22nd at 6:35 AM: Brace yourselves, folks, the corn snow is coming. With temps expected in the 40s and sunny skies overhead all day, we think it's finally safe to say that spring is here. And what perfect timing; today is SCHLAMM JAM, a seasonal celebration of community and spirit. All the action will be over on Stateside and includes a rail jam, a silent auction, local food vendors AND FREE live music. We hope to see you over there.
Ski and ride today on 34 trails, serviced by 4 lifts. The Jet Triple is scheduled to load at 8:30 AM, while The Taxi Quad, Village Double, and Stateside Carpet will start to spin at 8:00 AM. As always, last chair for all lifts is at 4:00 PM.
At this point, we're going to call Spring's bluff, but to help Mother Nature get the point, as it were, we have started the annual Spring migration over to the Stateside area. Granted, she spitefully accelerated the timeline a bit when she unleashed 115-mph winds and ice on the tram cables early Tuesday morning. That fury caused us to have to shut down the tram and all of the trails and lifts that cross beneath it (Including beneath the Bonaventure Quad) while we conduct the needed maintenance. Remorsefully/resentfully/resistingly, all of Tramside operations (Lifts, Customer Service/Tickets, Rentals, and the cafeteria) have closed for the season. Tramside Daycare has moved to the Mountain Kids Adventure Center at Stateside.
The upside of all of this late-season madness? So much snow that we will be spinning lifts for seven-day-a-week operations through May 1. (We figured with all of this snow it'd be silly to go to just weekend-only operations when we could keep 'em spinning throughout the week if we focused on Stateside.) NOTE: With the shift to Stateside, we'll be hosting the annual Pond Skimming competition on Lower CanAm. Registration will be from 10-11:00 AM at the Stateside Lodge's Ski&Ride School desk. The comp starts at noon.
