As snow flurries poke around the mountain this morning and the temperatures are seeming to drop for the week, the joy of holiday cheer and decorations around the Valley are heart-warming, and thoughts of family time around the mountain are exciting.
Speaking of exciting, we are always excited to have trails freshly groomed and ready for first tracks from our dedicated skiers and riders, and today is no different. I love seeing the groomers crawl around the mountain at night, knowing that they are setting things up for a great first run. The snowmakers are working hard and taking advantage of the weather as we push to the east side of the mountain and continue to work our way up Whiffletree and Ramp Down as well as Lombard and Spillway X-Cut.
Saddleback – 8 trails and 3 lifts
Happy Winter Solstice! Today is the day in the Northern Hemisphere when the North Pole has tilted the farthest away from the sun, marking the official start of winter.
