Snow 3-6”

It looks like we dodged a huge warm and wet bullet today. After a very short period of rain, temperatures dropped, and it started snowing. It looks like we could see close to a HALF FOOT of snow by first chair tomorrow.

Looking forward to the weekend, it looks like we’ll see mid-winter conditions. The skiing and riding should be exceptional on everything from the groomers to the woods. Temps look to be in the mid-20s with partly sunny skies and a chance of flurries. 

TOMORROW: All lifts and runs are expected to open. That translates to 78 trails of machine groomed and spring goodness being serviced by nine lifts. First Chair for lower-mountain lifts is slated for 8:30AM with the upper-mountain expected to come online at 9:00AM; last chair for all lifts is at 4:00PM.

The 36th annual Land Shark Beach Party is this Saturday. Get all of the details here.

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.
