Skiing was wonderful today and will continue in this vein with gradually warming temps till Thursday. Just follow the sun for good skiing. And remember, a few degrees up or down can make a huge difference in whether the snow has softened up or not.
Days will continue to be sunny to partly cloudy with small winds the rest of the week till Friday, when it appears, a strong spring storm will be upon us. Its looking like this atmospheric river will bring all snow to Rose even if the snow levels rise considerably. Forecasts are looking at a foot to two feet of snow if all holds together. The trend has been stronger and stronger with this disturbance which bodes well for us. For those of you sick of the snow, great shopping awaits you at the other summit, the Summit Mall. Have fun, hope you get first tracks at Kohl’s or Sears or Macy’s or wherever shopping finds you.

Here it is from the horses mouth!
