There are snow flurries this morning down to the Valley Floor and the temperatures at the summit are in the low twenties.
We had a good night of snowmaking and moved in the middle of the night from Upper Jester down to Downspout given the cooler temperatures. It looks like today through Sunday are going to excellent days for snowmaking from mid-mountain up. Unfortunately, the weather forecast is showing that we will likely be out of snowmaking on Monday and Tuesday. Hopefully, cold weather will return by Wednesday so that we can open on Thanksgiving Day. We should have a good idea by Monday morning whether that will be possible or not, but it seems likely that we will have skiing sometime during the Thanksgiving weekend.
The longer-range forecasts are showing that a more favorable weather pattern is shaping up after Thanksgiving. So keep thinking snow!
So what would you expect a former Executive Vice President of Merrill Lynch to do when he retires? Lay low in the islands? Nope. He moves north and works seven days a week right here at Sugarbush. Check out what he's been thinking.
