Snow Reporter Comments

Buenos Dias my friends,
Cup:O:Joe in hand, Clear skies, cold temps, as the snow making team wraps up a solid night of snow making operations @KirkwoodMtn. The team focused its attention to the top of Cornice Express and over in the Caples Crest base area. Getting ready to open 10 chairs, (Chair 10 will be on a hard snow hold to start, expect Ski Patrol to access around 10am) 81 trails, 30 groomed with Zachary & Sentinel bowl groomed… Our park crew added an additional feature to our Bandit park giving us 8 features with work to commence on the Outlaw park later in the week as we make additional snow along the Outlaw park run. Temps are currently 24 @the base with 21 @the summit, winds light at the base with 15ish across the summit. Roads, Open / Clear easy drive…
Potentiometer is feeling a solid 7.5 with the #StokeFaktor coming in @8.4 giving us a #StokeLevel of 7.95 for the day @KirkwodoMtn… Come on up and enjoy the sun, mountain and the fact you don’t have to wait in a lift line while riding @KirkwoodMtn today ;)
Stay’n Thirsty & Stoked on life.
Coop
