Update-2:44 Parts of Woolly Bugger was drifted so deeply that Molly got stuck....TWICE!
Update 02:33- Intimidator might be the glade of the day. Casablanca is a touch windblow in spots, but firm and edgeable. There are some fun wind drifts if you look around for them.
Update 09:49- Molly Chunkamunk is on hold .
Get ready for an excellent week of conditions. Temps have risen 51° in the past 48 hours, so it is safe to say that we have broken through to the other side of the cold front. Balmy temps return with daytime highs through Sunday ranging from 22-37.
The alternating fronts causing the swing in temperatures will bring snow. We are excitedly keeping an eye on next weekend since reports of snow are developing for Thursday-Saturday.
Even though we had no fresh snow through the weekend, the past two days of deep freeze and wind should dry out and redistribute the pow. I’m expecting yummy conditions. Our best powder hounds are on the scent running down nice pow pockets tucked about the mountain, especially in the trees. I will report back with their findings later this morning.
The Wheeler Slope Terrain Park and Tight Line are ungroomed today. You long-timers should get out there and relive the old Saddleback Bronco Buster challenge. Some of us noobs ran ungroomed Tight Line laps earlier in the season, and let me tell you, that trail has a whole different character ungroomed. Lots of fun.
In honor of this deep freeze, we’re FREEZING walk-up ticket prices at $84.
Tips of the Day
We had a full moon overnight, the Snow Moon, meaning we are officially on the downhill side of winter. If you haven’t visited the Tune Shop, then now is the time for a mid-season adjustment. Peirson and Jake will sharpen those edges and slather on a slick coat of wax for you. Be alert. The countdown to the last-last-chair is ticking, so if you haven’t been up yet you best get out sooner rather than later.
Registration for the King of the Mountain Snowmobile Hill Climb is now open! A few classes have already sold out. Over the next holiday week, we will be celebrating February Festival. Mark your calendar for the fun on Friday, February 24! There will be a Torchlight Parade, fireworks, bonfires and kid's activities at the base area, music by Maine's 12/OC band and more surprises. We couldn't pull this event off without our friends at Skowhegan Savings Bank.
