You mine as well consider the season over. This is the worst season in memory. No major storms in the 10 day forecast. And if it finally does snow, the pent up demand is going to be epic. Predicting 10,000 people show up. Ughhhhhb
Friday 2/5/16: Stratton makes a heck of a recovery from a 50 degree 2" rain Wednesday. Mother Nature did help with 1" but Stratton did the right thing by running the guns....for as bad as Thursday was, I was impressed by Friday. Nice job grounds crew!
Well, the snow was about as good as i could be yesterday, thanks to El Niño. In thë morning, we had solid snow and the super pipe was awesome. I went off a jump and broke my collar bone but it was well worth it!
So glad I only decided to head up for the day. People falling every 5 minutes causing lift delays, bare spots on almost every blue or green I ran today, and giant patches of ice being uncovered by noon. The staff weren't even putting up warning poles it took almost all morning to finally flag a huge spot near the top of Gore peak (forgot the trail name, but mind you it was on the other side of a hill so anyone who didn't know could have hit it).
