Welcome to a rockin' MLK weekend!  We've got gorgeous conditions and beautiful coverage, and of course we are gearing up for another dump of natural snow starting up late this afternoon.  Our talented grooming staff has skillfully blended Thursday's 5" accumulation into a carpet of crisp corduroy to get your weekend started in style with vast amounts of terrain to explore!  Several of your favorite summit steeps are back in action today- snowmakers wrapped up overnight on Lies, Chatiemac, and Headwaters- you can check out the newest snow there mid-morning.  During the day, snowmakers will be powering away on Lower Sleighride, Wild Air, Pot Luck, The Arena, and Ski Bowl terrain.  Make sure to hit up Burnt Ridge Mountain on today's adventure- the North Side and High Peaks are open too!
