March 18, 2014. Six inches of fresh powder on the 5am report.

Spring break skiing at it’s finest today. The snow began to fall yesterday night and continued through to this morning. While the initial report at 5am had six inches, total accumulation for the day will be higher as the flakes continue to fall. If you’re at a beginner/intermediate level of skiing, stick to trails that have been groomed and you will enjoy a more manageable powder day. If you are at a more advanced level, spacious trees on the front-side will provide cool, fluffy snow for you to push around.

A quiet morning of powder during spring break.

Temperatures will reach highs in the mid-twenties. There is a slight wind that will pick up through the day. With the day’s storm, there will be low visibility and cloud cover, so plan on dressing a little warmer than on previous sunny days.
