As of late afternoon, there is still some light snowfall that is beginning to break up. With 12" of new snow in the past 24 hours, Monday should be another amazing day at the Peak. We plan to operate Chairs 1, 2 and 6 first thing with 4 and 5 scheduled as well. The Juniper moving carpet for beginners will also be open. Highway 168 is open with chains or 4WD with snow tires, give yourself plenty of time.
You will find a combination of deep open powder, skier packed powder and machine groomed packed powder as our grooming crew has been out the past 16 hours doing what we can to provide a groomed surface in spite of consistent snowfall. Be ready for fresh snow all over and remember, when you venture into the epic deep powder, always, always do so with partners, no exceptions.
We will open the Day Lodge and Mainstream and Buckhorn as well. All other facilities are open including China Peak Sports, Ski & Board School, Learn to Ski & Ride, Ski & Board Rentals & Demos (grab a pair of our skis perfect for deep snow), Jack's, Sully's and our new Wine Bar in Jack's from 2-4:30PM on weekends.
