The month of October brought in several storms and then some warmer weather. Just a little snow seems to be all it takes for some to head to the canyon for a few turns as is evidenced in this video.
This week the weather has shifted in our favor and another storm brought in over a foot of snow in places on the mountain. With the storm came a lot of wind and a slab avalanche in High Collins on Tuesday. Early bird skiers need to use extreme caution when venturing out in the new snow. Another cold front is moving in on Sunday and we are glad to see there is more snow in coming in the weeks ahead.
