Devils Elbow and Outer Limits Open Tomorrow

It's the start of a perfect weekend for skiing, riding, and tubing! Big Acorn and Upper Turkey opened yesterday; Devils Elbow and Outer Limits will open tomorrow.

Math For Skiers and Riders

There's a big chance that we'll reach 100% open trails this weekend. How did we get here? In a word, SNOWPOWER! But there's more to it than that. Let's do the math.

4"=400 million gallons -- About four inches of rain fell across the mountain before MLK Weekend, which equals approximately 400 million gallons of water to feed SNOWPOWER. Here's what we did with it:

  • After the rain, on Friday, 1/12 - 12 slopes open, 32" base
  • Saturday 1/13 - 14 slopes open
  • Sunday 1/14 - 16 slopes open 
  • Monday 1/15 - 17 slopes open
  • Tuesday 1/16 - 17 slopes open, base increases to 36" - Natural snow starts!
  • Wednesday 1/17 - 17 slopes open for a powder day - about 4" natural snow total
  • Thursday 1/18 - 19 slopes open (Big Acorn and Upper Turkey Open), 40" base
  • Today 1/19 - 20 slopes open (Cross Cut Opens)
  • Tomorrow 1/20 - 23 slopes open (Devils Elbow and Outer Limits open)

What's left to finish the equation? Just Upper Diamond and then all our trails are open! There's a good chance we'll get to 100% open this weekend, so do your snow dances, thank a snowmaker, and get your skis and boards and come enjoy it! Conditions are excellent - it's a great time to be on the mountain!
