November 22, 2014 - OPENING DAY!

Welcome back, Sun Mountain family.  Ropes drop on 6 trails today - 31 acres of top to bottom skiing and riding on freshly, expertly, perfectly groomed corduroy.  And with a dusting of powder yesterday, there's even some natural stuff mixed in.  Wink.  Our park crew has even placed a couple of rails on skier's right of Upper Twister; get your jib on pre-official Garden & Halo Terrain Park builds!

The Sun Mountain Express Quad will spin you to the top from 8:30am to 4pm.  If you're not quite ready for summit shots, we'll also have the Alpine Double cruising to midstation.  All day lift ticket rates are $49 for Adults, Teens & Seniors, and $39 for Juniors.  No half day option, but midweek passes are valid this weekend!

Please note that the Ski & Snowboard School & Kids Center will not operate this weekend.  Our daycare is finishing up some nice renovations with plans to open next Friday!  The Marketplace main cafeteria in the base lodge will open at 7:30am for all your snacking and lunching needs, and be sure to stop in for a complimentary welcome back cookie or cupcake!  Adult beverage thirsty?  The Wild Boar Tavern will open for drink service only this weekend. 

Due to pleasant, partly sunny skies and temps in the mid 30s, snowmaking operations have been suspended until the mercury drops again, sometime next week.  That means no guns blasting you from the lift this weekend - just fresh wide open cruising under the Bromley sun. 

Enjoy the day, and welcome back to winter!

One week later... 

Here we go again! With forecasted summit temps of 18-22 degrees tonight, we expect to fill the lines and fire up the guns sometime late this evening. Chris and the night crew will get us cranking on Upper Twister & Corkscrew, and operations will remain up top until temps drop tomorrow night into the 18-22 degree range at the base. To quote Bill Cairns, we'll call this the "yo-yo" effort... Our teams will move down the mountain as temps drop, as temps rise they'll move back up towards the summit and colder air. And up, and down, and up again as the mercury dictates.  We're expecting a solid window through the weekend into Sunday, hitting all 1334' of vertical in the base area, Spring Trail, Twister/Twister, Route 100 & the Cork.

Looking ahead: Expect a break in the snowmaking action on Monday as a storm rolls in to add a hefty amount of moisture to the air - possibly light snow or mixed precipitation.  The good news? Monday's storm will usher in some REALLY cold air, and team Snowmageddon will get right back out and at it.
