Good morning Sugarloafers! Monday's snow has groomed beautifully into our base making for perfect corduroy to make your carves on today. Tote Road, Kings Landing, Hayburner, and Candyside were all smoothed out to perfection by our hard working groomers last night. This Wednesday morning is starting out clear and slightly warmer than yesterday with base temps between 30-34 degrees and summit temps between 25-29 degrees. Flurries and light snow showers are expected throughout the day today. Winds are coming out of the SW at 8-14mph at the base and 15-30mph at the summit.
Ski Patrol has been keeping a close eye on coverage, and let's just say that we could be seeing a rope or two drop today with additional lifts on tap for later in the week. Our snowmakers took last night off and will return tomorrow blasting trails including Narrow Gauge and Peavy X-Cut. If you haven't already seen the weather blog that our pal Keith Carson is writing this season, you can check it out right here. New topics are added every Thursday, so be sure check back in regularly.
The SuperQuad will spin from 8:30am until 3:50pm. Early season lift ticket prices are set at $59 for adults, $49 for teens, and $45 for juniors and seniors. There is an early season Terrain Park set up on upper Tote Road, above the SuperQuad, with 7 features. We would like to remind you that early season conditions are variable and are recommended for advanced skiers and riders only and some natural snow trails have thin cover. There will be no beginner terrain available.
