Yet More New Snow for Winter Park

As of 6AM this morning, the Winter Park Ski Area was reporting 21 inches of new snow for the last 48 hours. The number of trails open have doubled – from 8 to 16, and it’s still snowing. The forecast is calling for another 12 inches of snow today and tonight, with continuing snow into Monday, December 10th!

Having just had a flu shot, to coin a popular phrase, this is just the shot in the arm the Ski Area needs as we approach what will be a very busy Holiday Season. If you’re using your own equipment, unless you don’t care, I’d still recommend using rock skis and rock boards (is there such a term?) until the snow has been packed in and a decent base established, but this storm system beats the pants off all the snow-making efforts that have gone on for the last 6 weeks or so.
