He plans on looking for groomers in the Lionshead area and using a wandering technique to explore the mountain today. “I don’t do well with maps,” he said.Snowcast: Snow is headed for the state, with the southern mountains probably getting the brunt of it. We should get some, though, making Friday and Saturday the days you want to be out there.
