TGIF!! Today we will be running West and Alpental! Summit West is open for Night Skiing but remember that Pacific Crest lift will close at 5PM due to the conditions on the upper part of the mountain. The following is a list of lifts and operation times: - Julies Chair will now be open 1PM-10PM - Pacific Crest will be open 9AM-5PM - Little Thunder and Upper West Carpet will be open from 9AM-10PM - Armstrong Express will be open from 9AM-4PM - Chair 2 will be open from 9AM-3PM - Sessel will be open from 4PM-10PM - St. Bernard will be open from 4PM-10PM Conditions The best snow conditions and coverage lately have been on Dodge Ridge and parts of Julies at Summit West or Chair 2 at Alpental for all the experts out there. The main run on Pacific Crest tends to have lower coverage and more hazards as more skier and boarder traffic hits it. Snow conditions consist of firm snow and granular loose snow on the surface on the main runs, and firm frozen hard pack off the main trails. Right now we have mostly foggy skies, but the forecast is calling for sunshine today. As of 2pm we're Summit West and lower Alpental are still in the fog. The entire upper half of Alpental is in the clear though, with sunshine and softer spring like snow. FUN AT THE SUMMIT! - Come Join us for Super Bowl Sunday!

Early season and low snow conditions exist currently with thin cover, lower slopes particularly. Please be careful and watch for both marked and unmarked hazards and ski and ride with care! We suggest bringing up your older equipment and leaving your brand new boards at home until we gain more snow base.
