I was at Sundown the last two days and the snow was absolutely fantastic. Best all year so far. It should be great all week since the temps appear to be staying low. All runs open. One small jump in the beginner terrain area and plenty of features in the park. Crowds were low over the holidays but I expect the weekend crowds to pick up now. The last two days there were no lines at the main 3 chair.

Had very little natural snow. I would guess maybe 2". But with their snowmaking equipment and grooming machines it was actually quite good.

Ya its no were close to 30" base. Copper had a 25" base a few weeks ago and that was a true 25"... 30" this early at sundown is hard to believe. Granite they have good snow making equipment but still..

Didn't they use to have a halfpipe? Will they have that this year?

Last Saturday I'd say the base was at least 24" and they have gotten real snow since then so it's probably fairly accurate. Only run I saw with a smaller base was Free Time at about 12". There were no brown spots and coverage was good since the temps have stayed low. They have good coverage with the snow guns since the place is small. When I left they were making snow in the jump areas so hopefully they've got some jumps up now.

Do they really have a 32inch base that's just as much as some Colorado resorts. I'm calling bull on this one.

Went to sundown saturday, it was very cold but snow was alright.. Park had a lot of features but not a single jump. So We left after 3 hours and went to Chestnut, snow was a little better and they had 5 jumps with a good amount of features. Both $20 so u make the call
