Scheduled To Resume Operations This Thursday, January 28
Dodge Ridge Is Temporarily Closed Following This Week's Severe Wind Event
There’s Nothing but good news to talk about today, starting off with our scheduled date to resume operations this Thursday January 28 with significant snowfall in the forecast before, during and after our reopening.
Though Dodge Ridge will remain closed today following the severe wind storm earlier this week that toppled trees and took down our communication lines throughout the mountain, our Mountain Operation Crews have been out on the mountain mitigating hazards and repairing damages all week and Dodge Ridge would really like to thank the entire team of sawyers and the entire Dodge Ridge Mountain Operations crew for their rapid response and skilled efforts following this event.
Due to their highly skilled efforts, we are currently scheduled to resume skiing and riding operations throughout the mountain this coming Thursday, January 28. And based on the current forecast, it looks like we’ll be reopening the mountain this Thursday to solid powder conditions. It does appear that the storm door has now opened as forecast after picking up 10” of new snowfall over the past 24 hours.
We’ll pick up another inch or two during the day today, with a little break for Monday afternoon into Tuesday morning before the real winter action arrives Tuesday night. According to the current forecast, we are expecting to receive significant snowfall Tuesday night through Thursday with 3 - 4+ feet of snowfall at our base area and 4 - 5+ feet at the summit. This Tuesday - Thursday storm will start out very cold with the snowline down below the 4,000 ft elevation and then slowly rising up to near 5,000 feet by Thursday, which is all well below our base area elevation of 6,600ft.
After Thursday evening, light snowfall will continue into Friday and Saturday with only about 2 - 3” expected each day followed by a larger winter storm for Sunday and Monday, which could bring another foot or two by Tuesday.
All in all, these are the kind of winter conditions we always look forward to and to see the confidence and excitement building with this forecast will be a great way to finally kick-off the 2020/21 season properly. Be sure to check back here or on the Snow Report Page at DodgeRidge.com for updates as the snow flies and we’ll look forward to reopening the mountain with a powder day this coming Thursday, January 28.
