Winter Park received 10inches of snowfall today 11/25. Zephyr is going to open on Wed. 11/26 and Mary Jane will open Friday 11/28. There will be a tree lighting and some other cool things happening Thanksgiving day/evening.
Yeah you could get to it off 8 but better access from 6 and if your trying to get there now... Probably wouldn't be the best idea... Just wait till access opens through 6 and patrol does avy mitigation on it. Stays pretty fresh back there anyways, most people don't make the hike.
