5°F-15°C

6-10” of snow likely

4-6” of snow has fallen since the sun’s come up, making it 5-8” in the last 12 hours. The heaviest of the snow fell from 12-3PM. We could be seeing close to a foot of snow come sunrise tomorrow. Speaking of tomorrow, we plan on being 100% open with all 9 lifts scheduled to spin.

Tomorrow the temps are supposed to be a bit chilly, with lows at the summit near -10F. Don’t forget to throw an extra layer or six into your ski bag tonight, you wouldn’t want to miss out on this new snow.

For today, the trail count will be 67 as we have some trails like Green Beret, Valhalla, Vermonter, The Milks, and Power Line closed due to snowmaking and grooming on the Northway. Tomorrow the mountain will be 100% open, with powder stashes everywhere.

Lower Mountain lifts are scheduled to spin at 8:30AM with Upper Mountain lifts slated to spin shortly after at 9:00AM. As always final chair is at 4:00PM.

Lift tickets are $72 for adults ages 19+ and $57 for juniors ages 6-18 and can be purchased at both Stateside & Tramside Customer Service locations.

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.
