We’ve had plenty of sunny days so far this month and it seems like spring skiing conditions have come early! Over the next couple of weeks, we expect to continue the trend of sunny skies and warmer days. That means it’s time for some fun on the groomers and sun-baked slopes, and the perfect weather for enjoying après on the deck.


Because the temperatures are still dropping at night, we are seeing firm or icy conditions first thing in the morning. Earlier in the day, stick to groomed terrain so you aren’t caught off guard by hardpack conditions. Once it warms up, you can head off piste to carve it up in the sunny bowls that have softened up. A great tip for days like this is to follow the sun – and remember that some trails will be kept closed until midday to allow for ample softening.


The warm, sunny days should continue into next week, so grab some light layers and don’t forget your sunglasses for Apres!

There will be live music and fireworks on Saturday, and be sure to check out the new Tram Car bar, a restored 70’s-era Tram Cabin on the deck of Olympic House. Of course you can’t miss Le Chamois, a classic après bar in the base area. The sun deck is the perfect place to soak up the California sun and enjoy a cold beer. We hope to see you out on the slopes soon!
