Exceptional vertical drops, famous pistes and tremendous glacier skiing have given the Grands-Montets its prestigeous reputation. A resort of international renown due to the extent and variety of its itineraries. The geographical situation plus snow canons on the lower slopes permit the ski area to remain open until the beginning of May. EVENTS

Wild Cat
5-8" of new snow opened a bunch of terrain on the Cat - 15 trails opened today! (back up from 26 to 40 trails!). Granted many trails are open on thin cover, so you want to keep a watch where you're going . . . but it's just what we needed to get some meat back on the bones! This snow had some body to it, so it's here to stay! Snow is in the forecast all week as well, so if your throat is feeling a little scratchy . . . there's good medicine for that up here in Pinkham Notch! (wink, wink --- this isn't about sitting around a pot of lemon & honey tea!). WildCat

Open trails: 76
Open lifts: 9
Grooming: 52
Miles: 32.47
Acres: 384.43
Primary Surface: Packed Powder/Machine Groomed
Secondary Surface: Powder
Coming soon: THREE Maine Days this week!

The 4 inches of snow we received last night will be groomed out on 52 trails tonight, making for some excellent packed powder conditions. But you should still be able to find some powder on the sides tomorrow.

We'll have 76 trails open and nine lifts scheduled to run. We saw little or no wind today, and we can expect the same tomorrow, so that fresh snow should stay where it is.
Mother nature's timing with this new snow couldn't be more perfect. We have decided to extend our Maine Days this week to include Tuesday and Thursday, as well as the usual Wednesday. Maine residents can ski for $26 per day. And if you want to ski all three days, and I highly suggest that you do, we have some impressive ski and stay packages for Mainers.

Groomed to cruise ,...
Recent snowfalls, left more than 60 cms of fresh snow on the slopes, and Panorama's groomers are in supreme condition. Long, wide runs like Skyline off the Champagne Express and Heaven Can Wait on the Sunbird Chair are groomed to Panorama perfection and will leave you looking for more.

Sun Peaks
Today’s Forecast: Snow easing to a few flurries in the morning. Accumulation 3 to 5 centimetres. High minus 5. Winds southwest 25 to 35 km/h. Extended Outlook: Scattered flurries on Wednesday with a weak trough of low pressure lying over the Southern Interior. A ridge of high pressure should give some sunshine and less chance of flurries on Thursday. Sun Peaks
