Mount Snow, Southern Vermont
What a day of great turns. We had nearly a foot of snow last night; however, higher temps came in and we got a little bit of wet stuff as well making today’s snow surface heavy yet soft. Conditions were great to get in some deep carves. The snow isn’t finished though…in fact it just started up again.
The forecast is still looking complicated with snow and mix predicted to continue this afternoon and through the night totaling to around 3-5”. Tomorrow’s weather is looking like it’s going to be another day with snow showers throughout the day. Temps are predicted to be a high of 29 at the summit and 32 at the base with calm winds coming from the NW at 8-14 mph.
Tomorrow we’re looking at 18 trails covering 182 skiable acres spread across three mountain faces. Snowmaking has shut down until colder temps return, but thanks to their efforts we’ll be opening new terrain very soon. Our grooming team will be pushing out the mounds getting more trails ready, including Coopers Junction, Deer Run, Sweet Sixteen and Fallen Timbers. They should be ready to open by Founders Day (which is this Friday)!
With similar weather including a variety of precipitation means that we might experience some delays in lift service so be sure to check the snow report often to catch the latest on the mountain. Ticket prices will be $72 for adults, $59 for youth and seniors (age 6-18/65+) and kids age 5 and under are $5. Lower mountain tickets are $35 and half-day ticket rates are $59 for adults, and $49 for youth and seniors. We are not offering snow guarantees at this time.
Carinthia Parks is donning a sweet park in The Gulch with 14 elements including a couple of new ones to keep things fresh.
Join us this Friday, December 12 for Founders Day and help us celebrate Mount Snow’s 60th birthday! Don’t forget to grab your $12 advance purchase lift tickets at least 24 hours in advance and join us for an awesome celebration of our 60th anniversary. Stick around for the weekend, because we have tons of fun stuff planned.
Keep snow dancing!
