There's some argument around about how much snow we're going to get out
of this (some are using the word 'foot'), but there seems to be little
argument that accompanying this natural snow are snowmaking temps as
far as the forecast can see. Seems like a good combo to me.
Just a couple of quick reminders about one deadline date for two
products geared to get you here often this season.
I like to call this product the answer.
-- Adults can ski for as low as $49 per day (Juniors, Seniors and Young
Adults for even less).
-- They're valid at all 7 American Skiing Company Resorts (Killington,
Pico and Mount Snow in Vermont, Attitash in New Hampshire,
Sugarloaf/USA and Sunday River in Maine as well as Steamboat in Colorado and The
Canyons in Utah).
-- You do have to commit to at least 6 days, but they don't have to be
-- After March 15, 2006 they become transferable - sharing is good.
There’s a tear in the cosmic sugar bag and powder is falling
everywhere. That, together with grins and cheers, is the key
ingredient in Mother Nature’s crème brulee. Not to worry,
everyone who shows up today will get a king sized portion.
The snow on Rudy’s was just
firm enough to let me make turns without feeling the bottom.
The line at Storm Peak was already forming when I got on the
first Burgess Creek chair, and before I knew it I was making
figure eights down Rainbow with the only other set of tracks.
Next I got on Storm Peak eager to see what the conditions
would be on top. It was warmer today and the wind was
coming from the south. There were a few rocks exposed
under the chair, but the face and everything skiers’ left was
loaded with snow. From there I glided over yesterday’s bumps
on Hurricane, hardly noticing them, and continued doing laps
on Storm Peak. I found fresh lines in Closets every run.
It's been snowing like crazy all week, and this morning there was over
a foot of new powder awaiting us here at Jackson Hole Mountain Resort.
We look forward to commencing what promises to be a spectacular and
memorable winter season. Tomorrow we open at 9am with Apres Vous and
Teewinot, and we expect Casper to open around midday. All major runs off the
lifts will be open, and conditions should be superb. Join us as we kick
off another fabulous season on the mountain! -AC
