The only clouds in the sky this afternoon are from our Snow Guns. Snowmaking pulled off the Village Double this morning, and are currently beefing up our snowpack on the Montrealer as they make their way to the summit. This strategic snow making plan will help ensure late spring skiing and riding.

Join us for Après music from the Dave Keller Band this afternoon from 4-7pm in the Bullwheel.

Tomorrow you can expect partly sunny skies, with temps in the mid 20s. We plan to have 63 trails open with 8 lifts slated to spin.

Lower Mountain lifts are planned to spin at 8:00am while Upper mountain lifts are at 8:30am. Final chair is at 4:00pm.

Lift tickets are priced at $72 for Adults ages 19+ and $57 for Juniors, ages 6-18.

Splicing Cables With Bonnie

By Andrew, on Wed, Nov 27, 2013

View/Hide Photos

It's no secret that nothing lasts forever (except the Grateful Dead's legacy), and time wears away even the most well-built structures. The key to consitent quality with any equipment requires continued service and care. While providing patrons with uphill access, the constant weight and perpetual rotations cause our chairlift cables to slowly stretch over time.  Fixed grip chairlifts like our Jet Triple, Taxi Quad and Bonaventure Chair can run for several decades without requiring any cable splicing, core replacement and tightening. Our cable service providers, Dale R. Walters' Mountain Wire Rope Service specialize in wire rope splicing, repairs and inspections. Certified throughout the U.S., Walters, and his son J.T. service about 135 different areas across the East and Midwest. But wire rope techs are a dying breed, in a trade that requires several thousands of miles on the road and many consecutive months away from home, on top of a physically demanding regime exposed to the elements. With the help of our Mountain Ops. crew, Walters' Mountain Rope Service removed a portion of the Bonaventure cable's nylon core and replaced it with a tight, new section that will service our skiers and riders for years to come.
