The Bird is opening on Friday after a storm that brought 11″ of new product to cover the dance floor. Another very intense storm is moving on shore as I write this and it is expected to bring a lot of Essence to make the opener one for the books. With all the new snow, and the short time window to work the hill, you can expect limited access to the hill. I have heard no reports on possible Tram operations, but you can expect a big turn out, with the lower Gad Valley to be in play. This storm should last through Saturday, so there will be good conditions on the machine worked runs, but the off trail may still be interesting. Expect some intense pressure for the opening morning, so be cautious and considerate. Here is a shot I got the other day, enjoying the last of the warm weather before the Powder starts to dump.

The Trailer all set up and ready for the Season. Let the games begin.

I will be walking through the Galactic Portal to visit the Home Planet for the holiday opener, so I leave it to all of you to smooth out, and pack out the hill. I will be back on the hill Sunday and will have a first hand account of the conditions. In the mean time enjoy the opening festivities and be safe. Stay Frosty!!
