Guess what Sugarloafers!? Winter has finally returned and the snowstorm we've been waiting for is currently producing some big, fat flakes. Activity in and around the Loaf today has been buzzing with excitement. On and off the hill, we saw plenty of smiles; it seems like we're all more than ready for our first big pow day of the season. Tell grandma to throw an extra bird in the oven - you're going to work up quite an appetite shredding freshies all morning.
Turns today were a bit faster and firmer than they were yesterday as temperatures have dropped over the past 24 hours, but come tomorrow we're expecting a much softer ride thanks to 10-14" of snow predicted to fall tonight. The snow will continue to pile up this evening and taper off during the wee hours of the morning. Thanksgiving Day temperatures will range from 25-29 degrees at the base, and 15-19 degrees at the summit. Winds are predicted to be rather calm and will slowly shift from the northeast to the northwest as the day goes on. We could see some snow flurry activity during the day tomorrow through Friday.
With the snow on the way, our groomers are revving up and roaring to go. Some of the trails they'll be working on tonight include Gondi Line, Tote Road, The Birches, and Hayburner. Snowmakers will be up and running on Spurline, Peavy and Spillway X-Cuts. The snowguns will continue to work tomorrow during the day, and snowmakers plan to concentrate on Spillway, Haywire and Boardwalk.
We plan to have four lifts turning to get you up the hill tomorrow, winds and conditions permitting - the SuperQuad, Skyline, Skidway, and Double Runner East. Lift ticket prices are currently set at $59 for Adults & Teens, and $49 for Juniors & Seniors. As always, you can get the latest Lift and Trail information by checking out our Trails & Lifts status page or follow our @SugarloafSnow account on Twitter.
We have a pre-season park set up on Tote Road above the SuperQuad that includes four features - a flat box, hitching post, flat bar and flat rail to down box.
