Snow Reporter Comments

Buenos Dias my friends,
Cup:O:Joe in hand, looking out the window watching the sunrise @7800’  Clear skies, cold temps, winds light @the base with gusty conditions up top…
Temps are 22@the base with 27 @the summit (add in the wind chill for the summit) with winds 13@the base and 27-30ish @the summit…
Winds have really dried the snow pack out on the upper mountain from Eagle Bowl out to the Palisades. We are scheduled to open 11 lifts accessing 2300 acres (81 runs, 32 were groomed last night) Surface Tows Vista & Covered Wagon #1 & #2 will need a bit more snow for us to open them, but ya’ll are welcome to hike up to Thunder & Vista and Out to Fawn ridge as much as your heart desires (like we did for so many years) and by the way it’s good for you :)
Roads , Open / Clear easy drive, a few slick spots but just slow’yr roll and you will have an amazing day out here today… Our staff’s ready, lifts are being prep’d #StokeLevel is 8.6 with the potentiometer looking @7.5 giving us a solid stoke facktor of 8.0 ;)
Come on up and spend the day with us my friends, you will not be disappointed ;)
Stay’n Thirsty & Stoked on life.
Coop
