Yes we are open for Thanksgiving! The snow is holding up so far. The skiing is best at 9 AM when we open.
“How will it be for Friday and Saturday?” I think the snow will be skiable but more for those who are wanting to get on snow. I am thinking the recreational skiers, may not be satisfied.
“What have skiers been saying?” The skiers have been saying that is just what they expected and are not disappointed for early season. They are/were happy to drive 5-8 hours to ski the past 2-3 days.
“Will you close if it gets soft to save the snow? No, we plan to be open but we will close if the trails becomes unsafe for the intermediate skier.
“What are your grooming plans?” We will groom as needed when we can.
“Do I have to worry about wearing orange?” I work on the trails in a brown carhart, we are on private land and we do not allow deer hunting. Most skiers have colorful clothing. We close at dark 5 PM for skiing during early season.
“Is there snow in the forecast” Yes!
