Good morning skiers and riders,
This is Aaron with the Big Sky Resort snow report for Friday, February 12, 2016.

Whoo Father Winter came back to town last night and dropped 2 inches of freshies on the mountain. The mid-mountain base is holding 43 inches and the upper mountain base is holding 75 inches. The expected high for the afternoon will be around a balmy 40F with a low of 25F. Winds will be moderate out of the west at speeds between 10-20mph. Skies today will be mostly cloudy.

The skiing is ahh umm, well it’s skiing and what is better than being out on the mountain? I can’t think of anything. Enjoy the day there is a fresh layer of snow to play on. More snow will be on the way. Be sure to please Ullr with some sweet ski balloting moves. The corduroy is as fresh as MC Hammer was in the 90’s. The park gurus have the terrain parks shaped to perfection. Be sure to show off your sick moves bro! Come on out and play in the snow it will be awesome out there!

Keep it cool, enjoy the stellar skiing and riding and have an awesome day on the slopes!

Ski and ride with care at all times everyone! We care about your safety and want you to have as much fun as possible out on the mountain. Please pay attention to where you are going and what you are doing. Know the code!
