After four long days of Hwy 410 being closed, the road is finally open again and operations have resumed! I woke up this morning 5 minutes before my alarm was set to go off to a loud boom. Since then I’ve heard another 5-10 bombs go off. Patrol is busy this morning doing avalanche control work. Since last Wednesday, 27 inches of snow has fallen at mountain-top! Most of it has consolidated but with a gain of another 6 inches last night, the first day back was an early one for patrol (I am not a patroller but I do work and live at the mountain). The groomers are soft and fun. The snow off piste is dense but pretty smooth. Looking ahead…. Get ready for sun & Hawaiian shirt weather this week. What a winter this has been. These extreme weather events have been far from normal. But then again, I’m not really sure what "normal" is anymore. What I do know is it’s January, we have a great base, and the lifts are rolling. Check out the video conditions updates on the Weather & Conditions page, in the upper right hand corner. We’d love to hear your feedback on the video updates. See you on the slopes!
