Timberline & West Mountain Update

Thursday, January 14, 2016

After picking up more than a foot of new snow this week, we've nearly doubled our open trail count, with skiing and riding available on 81 trails. And, with a long window of favorable snowmaking temperatures, we've been pressing on to expand open terrain in the Timberline area. 

The Timberline lift underwent its annual inspection and dynamic load test last week, and has been given the green light to operate-now all we need is some more coverage on the summit. 

The 12" of new snow that we saw on Wednesday, was so light and fluffy that it didn't stick to exposed surfaces at the summit. Our snowmaking team is currently blowing snow on the Lower Timberline trail, and plans to move upwards to the summit tomorrow.

Conditions permitting, we hope to have the Timberline Chair up and running by early next week. 

In other news, the West Mountain chair is next on the list to open for the season, and is the final stages of preparation. After receiving a new digital drive system, in addition to upgraded anti-rollback detection and emergency braking systems this summer, the West Mountain chair is slated for a dynamic load test next week. 

The West Mountain trail opened today, with light coverage, for condo and homeowner access only. 

Stay tuned for more lift updates, as we prepare these two lift to open, and think snowy thoughts for the second wave of powder, expected this Saturday.
