What a beautiful sight! The drive up the access road has people grinning due to the hard working snowmakers. Temps have been perfect for them to blast away on Kings Landing, Candyside, Upper Tote Road, Sluice and Upper Narrow Gauge. Groomers were able to flatten Hayburner for the first time this season, and the Mountain Ops Team believes it will be the trail of the day.
The skies are clear and forecasts are calling for a mostly sunny day today. Temps in the low 30's at the base and low to mid 20's up top. Winds will be light out of the Northwest.
Our groomers smoothed 5 trails last night; Kings Landing was left off the list due to continous snowmaking. Snowmakers threw a fresh coat Candyside as well to keep the turns fresh and are taking full advantage of these ideal tempatures. There is a pre-season terrain park setup above the SuperQuad on Tote Road, with 3 rail features.
Lift ticket prices will be set at $49 for all ages, but this weekend, you can purchase a lift ticket for just $40 with a donation of three or more cans of food for the 31st annual Tin Mountain Round Up. The SuperQuad is scheduled to spin from 8:30am until 3:50pm. We would like to remind you that early season conditions are variable and the terrain is recommended for advanced skiers and riders only.
