Snow Report for Monday, March 10th
67" Mid Mountain / 101" Upper Mountain
Packed Powder / Machine Groomed
Today will be a powder day. It will be the kind of spring powder day people dream of, where snow just keeps coming. 1 to 2 inches of snow has already fallen since lifts closed yesterday, and another 4 to 6 inches will fill in tracks throughout the day. Big Sky Resort has received snow 28 of the past 32 days, and the seven day storm total is at 20 inches.
When all 5,750 acres of Big Sky’s terrain have immaculate snow conditions its best to explore some of the local’s favorite areas: runs off Challenger, Dakota, Headwaters, and Lone Tree Lifts as well as Lone Peak Tram.
On top of today’s snowfall, new snow accumulations for tonight may total 8 to 12 inches, and 1 to 2 inches tomorrow. Highs today will be around 34° with lows tonight around 15°. Southwest winds will blow around 15 mph. The upper mountain base is at 101 inches and the lower mountain base is at 67 inches.
