Hello February! We had a great week of snow at Bluebird. Thursday and Friday we saw 6″ each day and woke up to 15 light fluffy inches on Saturday. Plus another 13 inches on Sunday, for a storm total of 40″ — perhaps the most of any ski area in the state.

With good skier compaction and snow falling most of the weekend, the mountain is well-covered and riding great. We were able to treat our guests to new lines and fresh pow on directed tours of the north face of Bear Mountain on Monday. This new zone doubles our open acreage and adds far more challenging terrain. The north face is expected to be fully open starting tomorrow, Thursday 2/11 and through most of the season. Wind on Sunday night stiffened some north-facing slopes, but the trees have preserved the snow quite nicely in this area.

The forecast is smiling at us again this coming week. Snow started falling Tuesday afternoon, and we expect a nice fresh coat before opening again on Thursday. The weather pattern that has been benefiting the southern mountains in January is giving the Northern mountains its due. The forecast gets even better for the weekend with mild temps and snow Friday and Saturday. Hallelujah.
