Good morning, Skiers and Riders! Today is Closing Day for the 2011/12 ski and ride season, so itâ€™s time to get up here and get those last turns in before itâ€™s all beaches and BBQâ€™s! Lifts open at 9am.
As of 7am, it’sÂ currently 36 degrees at mid mountain and 28 up top with clear skies and light winds. The forecast calls for sunny skies, light winds and temps in the low 50s to low 60s. Sunscreen and continuous hydration are essential for this warm spring day. I also recommend a festive costume for this final day on the mountain!
Mountain access is out of the Gondola ONLY, with skiing and riding access via Tamarack Express and Dipper Express. Today weâ€™re offering a total of 19 trails on an 18-35 inch base of spring conditions and machine-groomed snow. The groomers laid corduroy on 9 of the open trails last night, and recommend Comet for you today. Please Note: there is no beginner terrain available. Obstacles do exist on and off the groomed trails, so please exercise caution and observe all posted signs and closures. Adventure Peak and ski school are closed, but we are offering Gondola sightseeing today. Ante Up Terrain Park has 12 features, including 3 jumps, with a difficulty level that all can enjoy.
Tamarack Lodge is open with a limited spring menu and East Peak Lodge will be open from 10a-3:30p. Please Note: There are no longer any shuttle busses in operation.
Donâ€™t forget to purchase your 2012/13 season pass for access to the best of Tahoe with Heavenly, Northstar and Kirkwood!
It’s been a pleasure reporting for you all season. Have a great summer and don’t forget…
Powder to the People!
