Mother Nature's interesting weather this week dressed us up with half a foot of new snow! The elevation-based storm delivered dryer accumulations up top that opened several glades, while the heavy base-building snow in the base was welcomed also. Snow showers and blustery weather will stay with us through Friday, offering groomers plenty of opportunity for making conditions more consistent as the weather leaves behind a nice-looking weekend forecast! The snow coverage is excellent and we're excited to blend the new accumulations into our strong base! On Saturday, plan on joining us for our Leap Day Scavenger Hunt- you can earn stickers throughout the mountain and get your card validated for a chance to win a new pair of skis! Check our e-ticket deals online to reload your SKI3 Card online in advance for direct-to-lift access, or plan to get your SKI3 Card at the mountain if you're joining us for the first time this season.

Thank you so much for tuning in, this is Emily with your More Gore Podcast for Thursday, February 27, Ski Day #97. As you know we have this murky weather system moving through- making everything just sort of damp and grey. Today the second half of it will be in play which will bring Rain and snow showers before noon, then a chance of snow showers. Temperature falling to around 27 by 5pm. East wind 9 to 16 mph becoming west in the afternoon. Winds could gust as high as 29 mph. New snow accumulation of 1 to 2 inches possible. but a heads up on some east winds around and falling temps through the 20s as we get into the mid and late afternoon- really this storm is just a couple of annoying weather days more than anything- nice to seem a break for Friday and beyond as things definitely get back into more of a mid-winter mood.
That said the snow is doing just fine even though the skies are dark. Groomers working their way around several of your favorites and look for that trail and count lift rebounding strongly into Friday. Conditions tightening up as we go through the day as the breezes and temps do their thing.
So 52 trails for today, serviced by 7 lifts including the Village Chair, which will be open through 8pm.
Today's food court lunch special is a garlic florentine calzone for $9.50. Passholders always save 20% off that special.
This weekend we have a Leap Day Scavenger hunt going on! There's six stops where you'll go around at specific times and get your card validated- earn a sticker at each one and then turn in your completed card for a chance at winning a new pair of skis.
Master the Mountain Clinics and Telemark Days both coming up for the weekend. Check out 90-minute clinics for telemark skiers of all abilities available at 10am, Noon, and 2pm both days of the weekend for just $29 and a SKI3 card loaded with that day's lift access required.
