Last week, spring was in full swing at Bear Mountain! With soft riding conditions in the afternoon, and a poppin’ apres scene at the base + lots of live music, the vibes were high.
Thursday and Friday will bring a short blast of winter back to the Northern mountains, with lower temps and a 80% chance of snow showers. Bluebird may pick up 2–4 inches of fresh snow before the weekend brings back the sunshine and warm afternoons.
Saturday, Sunday, and Monday will be sunny spring riding conditions: firm in the morning and a full-on corn harvest in the afternoon!
Highs for the weekend look to be in low- to mid-40s, with steady winds out of the west blowing 7–10mph, gusting higher at times.
This is our final full week before one last 3-day run April 2–4. Lots of music, events, Friends of CAIC fundraisers, education, and of course skiing on the calendar! See you out there.
