We made out very well today considering the forecast. Morning temperatures remained in the 20s, resulting in an inch of natural snowfall that midweek skiers and riders had fun playing in. Meanwhile our snowmakers got Long John/Deer Run open from the summit down to the base area – now also providing skiable connection between the Main Face and Carinthia. And with the Vermontster terrain park open and slowly building, everything is falling into place as we approach the Thanksgiving weekend.
Snowmaking will resume Thursday night after a couple of warm and wet midweek days. First we’ll resurface the open upper and lower mountain terrain. After that? Why, more expansion of course. But where oh where we can our fan guns do the most good for our wide array of guests?
- How about Stugger’s Chute, so there’s a nice wide cruiser at Carinthia from the Nitro lift or Heavy Metal double?
- What about another North Face run so we can offer a choice of black diamonds that are groomed or bumped up?
- Why not start blowing snow in the Gut Superpipe?
- And wouldn’t it be great to get the Jiblet mini-rail park on Mixing Bowl up and running, with its covered magic carpet lift, sound system and lights?
The good news is we don’t have to choose. Weekend temperatures are going to allow us to blow snow in ALL those areas. Yes, everyone is a winner at Mount Snow.
Tomorrow we’ll have 17 trails serviced by 5 lifts. With the forecast calling for occasional rain and temperatures in the mid-40s, groomers are staying off of Snowdance, Chute and the upper portion of Long John/Deer Run. Long John/Deer Run will be open for intermediate and advanced skiers only as a result. Regular midweek rates are now in effect. $63 for adults, $52 for young adults and $42 for juniors and seniors.
We have a lot special events lined up for the Thanksgiving weekend, including the annual Torchlight Parade and fireworks display on Saturday at 5:30 pm, followed by a visit from Santa and Mrs. Claus.
Friday also kicks off our season of great après-ski entertainment with two live bands at the Snow Barn, our own snow reporter Luke Stafford’s band, Amargosa opens for Tenet, and over at Harriman’s restaurant in the Grand Summit Hotel, kick back with some jazz and blues from New Orleans-expatriate Samirah Evans.

Don't forget that our new traffic flow pattern gives you a great view of the mountain as you come in from the North Entrance. (That's the second entrance if you're heading north on Route 100.)
