kelly026Winter has finally arrived!  We were all wondering when, and if, it was ever going to get here.  Although a little late, it has brought with it some magnificent, light, fluffy snow to make up for it.

We have had 11 inches of snow last week, 15 inches of new snow this week and 9 to 21 inches forecasted through the upcoming weekend.

The slopes are in prime shape right now, every turn inspiring the next.  Effortless floating and gliding, creating a bliss that only a powder day can.  It is guaranteed to put a smile (and maybe a little powder) on your face.

Check out this photo gallery and picture yourself here, consider it inspiration and a nudge to make plans to come join us on the mountain this weekend.

Exploration. It was so simple.  Get off the beaten path and look in the places less traveled.  I decided to search out North-facing slopes in the trees.  Not just trees right off of the groomed runs, but deep into the trees.  The places that I was not sure where they led.

I didn’t manage to get out on the hill until late today, but it didn’t seem to matter too much.One inch of snow fell overnight and the second inch fell during operating hours today, so slopes remained carvalicious into the afternoon.

112213004Our snow reporting team got to take a mountain tour and check the snow depths at several different locations. We wanted to share the photos to give you a clear picture of where our snowpack stands as we head into a string of clear, dry days.

It’s hard to get down to the raw statistics without taking a moment to appreciate how stunning the snow-covered mountain looks against the cerulean blue sky. This may be my absolute favorite color combination. Gorgeous!
