Friday, January 20, 2017 - 5:00pm // Since 5am we’ve received 8 inches of new snow on top of the 20 inches we received overnight, making for 28 inches in the last 24 hours. Tonight we’re expecting the storms to continue with a significant amount of snow added to the current storm total of 46 inches. More snow is in the forecast every day through Tuesday of next week. Tomorrow we have the following lifts scheduled to operate: 1, 2, 3, 5, 6, 7, and 8 along with the Rope Tow and both Conveyors in the Children’s Learning Area. Heavy snow conditions may cause delays for lift openings. Our grooming team is scheduled to have 39 runs groomed tomorrow. Expect snowfall on top of groomed runs tomorrow as the snow continues to fall. Deep snow conditions will exist so as always ski and ride with a buddy. Rocky’s Road Terrain Park will be closed during the weekend snowstorm today through Monday, and will be rebuilt and ready to ride on Tuesday, January 24th. To celebrate the incredible powder this weekend, this Saturday, January 21 will be a First Tracks, Early Lift Opening at 8:30am for our Season Pass Holders. This will be the 1st of 3 First Tracks this Season, which is one of the numerous perks that come from being a Dodge Ridge season pass holder.
