Sunny days have blessed the slopes this weekend with an umbrella of bright blue skies.  Cold nights have kept our snow coverage  optimum for mid-March. Come on out and carve up the fresh corduroy!  Lifts will be running today through April 1st from 9am-4:30pm daily.  The Clipper lift, Totem Park tows, Buck and Loki open at 9am; North Face and Ridge are open at 10am. The Backyard lift is closed for the season, but you can access all those trails from the Ridge lift - and as all you regulars know, the best snow is found on the mountain's backside later in the day, when the front side gets soft.

Terrain park updates: Basin Street boasts a 20ft double barrel rail, 16ft dance floor, and rollers. Jesters Alley has a 8ft double barrel and 20ft T-box. Little Vincent has a 12ft down rail, 16ft T-box, 21ft up rail, 20ft propane tank, 20ft tower tube, 8ft swing gate, and quarter pipe.
