04/21/18 - Conditions

Who knew we would still have something to report on this date? The Park is still being skied on this beautiful afternoon. We spent the morning at Catamount which received another 2+ inches since we were there a couple of days ago.Skiing was great.  Spring sprung and with it the critters, which have been noticeably absent at Catamount came back. There were squirrel, rabbit, beaver and, oops, bear tracks. The bear tracks were very fresh and the beaver(s) had been all over.

Enjoy!
Ed & Judy






We wanted to pass along the following information from the Park Staff:

1). The normal Lodge hours are 8AM-3PM.  They are 8AM-5PM on weekends during the ski season.
2).  Park hours are going to be 8AM-4PM.
3).  Night skiing will only be on Tuesday and Thursday evenings - like in the past. 


Happy skiing!

Ed & Judy
