Today's Mountain Report
Updated Sat Feb 16th 7:08
Rise and shine, it's going to be a great Saturday on the slopes. Mother Nature threw everything but the kitchen sink at us yesterday with heavy snow squalls through the morning, translucent flakes down at the base turning to snow at the summit. For those out and about last night, your mixed precipitation in town was all snow up at Burke Mountain accumulating to around two inches by the time the system finished up. Temperatures never dipped much below freezing and were anticipating surfaces to be soft and spring-like again as we ski and ride on 100% open terrain. Skiers and riders should stay aware however of changing surface conditions throughout the day.
The grooming team is on the hill packing powder and putting a fresh till on the following: Powderhorn, Carriage Road, Deer Run, McHarg's Cut-off, Dipper Doodle, Upper/Big Dipper, Open Slope, Little Dipper, The Shoot, Upper/Lower Fox's Folly, Upper/Lower Warren's Way, Lower Bear Den, Upper/Lower Willoughby, High Meadow Pass, Binney Lane, Bunker Hill, Carter Country, and Dashney Mile.
Day tickets are available for purchase in guest services located at the Sherburne Base Lodge or Vertical Drop retail, located on the 2nd floor of the Hotel.
