Snow Report for Wednesday, December 17th
19" Mid Mountain / 28" Upper Mountain
Powder / Machine Groomed
Good morning Ladies and Gentlemen! Today’s date is Wednesday, December 17th. We received about 3 inches overnight at the base and 5-6 inches overnight at mid-mountain areas on top of the inch it snowed yesterday afternoon. During accumulation hours we received light winds from the South to West. If 6 inches doesn't quite do it for you feel free to sniff out the wind loaded pockets. Up to 9-10 inches of freshies may be found in loaded areas around 9300 ft and maybe more elsewhere. Today skies should remain cloudy with scattered snow showers. We are expecting a high in the low 20’s at mid-mountain areas with temps dropping in the afternoon to a low in the mid-teens tonight. Winds should be coming from the South to West at 5-15 mph in the mid-mountain areas. The remainder of the week looks like a reproduction of today with similar temperatures and a chance of snow for the next few days. Enjoy your hump day riding the dump of snow we got last night and après at the Carabiner from 8:30-11.
Please Remember, early season conditions do exist. The Mid-Mountain Base is 19” and upper is 28”. For the most up to date information, please call Mountain Services at 406-995-5749.
Thanks for reading and have a safe day.
Wind: 3 mph from SSE
