Dan Greene hits the powder on the peak last week.
ANOTHER SNOWY WEEK, with nearly a foot in the last seven days and 40" over the course of the storm cycle. That means it's been snowing consistently every day for the last three weeks, delivering over three feet of powder. Is there any left to ski? Big time.
For tram skiers, everything on the peak is skiing great, with fresh tracks up for the taking. Lower down, you'll find a cool creamy cover with untracked snow on much of Upper Morning Star and in parts of The Bowl. With a little hunting off-piste on Andesite, you'll find untouched snow no problem.
That means it's a Powder Ski weekend - hands down. And keep them close at hand all week - the NOAA foecast is calling for a perfect mix of more snowfall and bluebird days. After snow all day today and Saturday, Sunday and Monday will reveal blue skies before more powder falls early next week.
