Let the Trail Count Grow
Patience is a virtue... a great one (especially when dealing with snowmaking and new terrain). After days of burying both Monday Mourning and Cascades, our snowmakers got us a new trail today! Welcome to the party, Monday Mourning.
Temperatures may be sitting a bit high at the moment, but once they drop again tomorrow our snowmakers will be back in action. When temperatures allow, our snowmakers plan to fire up the guns on Escapade, Risky Business, Road Runner, Lower Lazy River and Sundance. To help wrap your head around the amount of snow our team has been putting, that is roughly 189 guns.
Our snowmakers have been working miracles on South Ridge over the past few days but despite a their tremendous efforts, it looks as though South Ridge opening will be on hold for another day. Mother Nature is calling the shots and all we can do is take advantage when opportunity allows. Don't you worry though, Thursday morning we will have a new terrain appetizer for an exciting Thanksgiving Weekend.
Our grooming team will once again be putting down the stripes on Sunday Punch, Jungle Road, Ecstasy and Right Stuff as well as adding Cascades, Monday Mourning and Easy Street to the list. Both Cascades and Monday Mourning have an impressive amount of snow so you may want to head in that direction for that morning corduroy.
The Locke Triple and Barker Express open at 9AM tomorrow with skiing and riding on Sunday Punch, Jungle Road Ecstasy, Right Stuff, Cascades and Monday Mourning. All current terrain is recommended for intermediate to advanced skiers and riders only but don't worry, some beginner terrain is coming your way soon.
Not only do we have some more terrain headed your way, we also have some tasty Thanksgiving Weekend events both on and off the slopes. Work off that turkey on the mountain and then relax for some après fun.
Lift tickets are $49 for adults, $39 for teens and $29 for juniors and seniors tomorrow. Save on lift tickets by booking online in advance or by getting your hands on a Kickstarter Pass -- valid every day until December 24 for just $159 for adults, $129 for teens, and $99 for juniors.
