Mountain Report

12-9-2022
 

Good Morning,
 

This is Mason with your Mountain Report for Friday, December 9, 2022. Today is the day that Mineral Basin opens, conditions permitting. This makes it one of the earliest openings we have ever seen. I really don't think there is a better way to start off the weekend than by a rope drop in Mineral. Today will be mostly cloudy with a chance of snow this morning. The temperature will be nearing 22 with the winds coming out of the south at 20 to 22 mph.  It is going to be breezy out there so come prepared. Get to the Bird today and enjoy some pow turns in Mineral or fresh corduroy around the mountain. Either way, you can't go wrong. 
 

Winter Operations

Please remember that early-season obstacles do exist. We advise you to ski and ride with caution and stay on marked trails.  There is no beginner terrain with the exception of Chickadee.
