Weather: Sunny and windy

Liftline status: Not bad at all

Breakdown: While the ridges are windy, the runs that have trees along the sides are protected just fine. The back was slow to open this morning, but with minimal crowds, the front has plenty of terrain for skiers and riders to enjoy a great day on the mountain.

Snowcast: The National Weather Service says we’re supposed to get snow on Wednesday.
