Good morning, We woke up to a scene of powdery perfection this morning, with 3" of snow falling during the night on top of a thin ice layer. As our team works to clear paths between buildings, we approach the 4" mark with flurries still coming down. Yesterday's high was 33 degrees with a low of 18 last night. Temps are currently falling, though, as we sit at 16 degrees in the clouds.
Our team has been doing some admirable work preparing both the lodge AND the staging area in these conditions. We're still waiting for things to break our way, that way we can fly, receive our supplies, and put the finishing touches on the lodge before opening.
US 441 and Cherokee Orchard (past Twin Creeks) remain closed, so attempts to ascend the mountain in these conditions are not for the faint of heart. The lodge of course is still closed for the winter season. If you feel inspired to play in the snowy woods today, please be safe and let others know of your intentions. Have a great day!
Henry Neel takes the fight to the 4 inches of fallen flurries!
