Today's Summary

Good morning!

First off, it’s Friday, so you just have to get through the day for your weekend OR your weekend has already started… Second off, another blue bird day at Big Sky? Yes, today is going to be awesome, I know what I’m doing today (skiing). But for you Powder Hounds, looks like today is the last sunny day for a while! Mother Nature is going to stop by this weekend. So soak up the sun while you can.

For today’s forecast expect mostly sunny skies! We have received no new snow overnight and no new snow in the past 24hrs. Our mid mountain base is at 37” and our upper mountain is at 55”. Today’s high will around 32 F with a low around 18 F with North East winds at 7-15 mph.

Ski 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. So please pay attention to where you are going and what you are doing.

The forecast is looking awesome for snow these next few days; hold on tight Powder Hounds. This weekend is going to be GREAT! In the meantime, soak up that sun today and enjoy the start to the weekend. Every day is a good day whether its hot park laps with your buddies or an epic hike to the Headwaters, it’s all about attitude folks.

And remember… Keep the vibe alive!
