Snow Report 2-19
Are we having a real Ground Hog Day experience in the White Mountains? Well, if we are I'm sure I don't mind. Weather and conditions are about the same today as the past several days, but unlike the movie it's actually a good thing! 27° under partly cloudy skies this morning with highs reaching the mid 40s again. The breeze has come up a bit but still a moderate 9mph out of the southwest. Snow is in the forecast for Saturday, but forecasters can't seem to put a fine point on it yet as accumulation amounts and duration have been all over the board and changing dramatically every day. Will have to wait and see what Mother Nature has in store for us when the time comes.
Our groomers and terrain park crew have been manicuring the mountain for ya, and today you will find the smoothest trails here:
Bunny Hill, Evergreen, Fairway, Going Home, Jackson's Alley, Loafer, Lodge View, Lower Spruce, Nastar, No Name, Pinedale, Sidewinder, Sugar
Apache Drum, Wikieup, Red Valley, Midway Alley
Trails groomed by Snow Cat Shuttles, variable.
Note that UNMARKED OBSTACLES MAY EXIST.
Sunrise Hours: Sunrise rentals, ticketing and base operations are available 9am-4pm daily.
Cyclone Hours: Cyclone rentals, ticketing and base operations are available weekends only.
Tubing Hill: (behind Funland) open Friday, Saturday & Sunday 9am- 4pm
