Wednesday winter weather watch and Loon ski Conditions Update.
I consider going out on the hill as part of my Job description, and if you are here to try to convince me otherwise…FORGET IT!
I started this Wednesday Morning on the Gondola…From up high,
I could see the groomer’s busy working in the Terrain Park…huge jumps, walls and half-pipes where all coming together for the School Holiday breaks.
Over to South Mountain…via the Tote road lift, first Boom Run and then Cruiser. The snow makers were covering the Rip Saw trail (one of the Few Double black Diamonds in the east)…It looks like that will be open for the Holidays.
Back Over to North Peak, a run down Walking Boss and a trip up the quad to see more guns going on upper Flume. I counted a 21 gun salute on the way up the lift, this massive effort will net another expert slope open by the weekend.
Two More Runs on the Kanc – Quad…Beside the Governors Lodge and my ski day was at its end. A Mid-week prior to Christmas allowed me to share the snow conditions at Loon mountain and make 10 runs in two hours (I found myself on every lift alone…but you wouldn’t be after school vacation starts). The conditions are very good…and signs of grooming and snow guns show it will be noticeably better in a few days.
Skiing should be very good for the rest of the season 480 New tower guns have done the trick...if Nature is going to be a Mother, we'll make our Own. Have a safe and happy Holiday.
