In season's past, as long as we can get a solid 18" base pack from the snowcats after a couple decent storms(which we're now achieving day by day), lifts should be churning VERY soon. Depending how these next couple days go with the weather(12"+) and resort/employee prep, we should be carving corduroy by this weekend and/or early next week.
The snow on top was great for this time of season. Plenty of pow stashes if you're willing to venture off the beaten path. The best snow is on top (keep to Com Stock). Once more lifts open, you'll be in a good spot for the season.
