Whew baby has it been a good week. It looks like Wilderness will be open this Friday for the first time in a while and we can thank the 22-26" of fresh snow we have received in the last week. It looks, feels, and sounds like a completely different mountain. If you have a second, you should pop over to our Facebook page and check out a few photos we posted of the lovely powder that has given the mountain a whole new vibe.

Cobrass will open on Friday with fresh natural and machine made snow and if everything goes right, we will have Spillway pushed out and ready by either Friday or Saturday for you to enjoy as well. We think a good portion of you will be stoked to hear that Valley Road has guns officially firing away in order to bring you a jump line soon.

Friday and this weekend we will have all six lifts open. We should at least have project 66 open trails this weekend and may open more so pay close attention to our snow report.
