Last week’s Thursday / Friday storm brought a surprise powder day to Bear Mountain: 8″ of fresh with soft turns and big smiles.
This weekend will be closing weekend for Bluebird Backcountry’s first full season, and we’re going out with a bang! Warm temps and spring skiing will be in full swing Friday, continuing through to Saturday and Sunday. Expect full-on “beach conditions” with highs in the mid 50s, dipping just below freezing with clear skies at night. Hopefully with this weather pattern, the snowpack will set up just enough at night to be supportable in the morning, and ripe with corn by 10:30.
Friday and Saturday will be relatively calm, with a slight westerly breeze on Sunday. Watch out for variable snow and sub-snow hazards as our snowpack begins to melt.
Bring out the sunscreen, gaper outfits, apres attitude, and let’s finish the season strong! We’re open Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. After that, see you next year!
