Title

What a way to close out Snowvember! Today we started the day off with 3" of fresh followed by 8" falling throughout the day. Already the ski legs were burning with face shots aplenty. The National Weather Service's Winter Storm Warning doesn't expire until tomorrow morning, so that means some powder potential first thing tomorrow with another 3-5" forecasted overnight. For those of you waiting to hear when we plan to open more terrain, your answer is Friday. Preparations are already underway to open the Lakeview Triple and associated terrain ahead of the weekend!

Not a good resort for the disabled. Parking is far away from the lifts. If you're disabled go elsewhere.
