The Weather Ahead: This Week

Hello and happy Sunday everyone!

We have some pretty good conditions today, with some trails closed because the snow was too slippery after all the rain. Contrary to what many of you think, while we've lost much of our ground snow, we lost negligible amounts of trail snow, and previously open trails are still ski/ride-able.

This week's forecast looks great through the end of the week -- sun and cold temperatures will prevail, with temps warming up to the high 30's after Monday and Tuesday. Stay tuned with the forecast!

This week on the agenda we've got the last LocalMotion tomorrow, and a busy weekend with the Burton Women's Camp, Moguls & More workshop and a Mini World Cup competition.

Keep checking back!
