Good morning skiers and riders,
This is Aaron with the Big Sky Resort snow report for Saturday, February 6, 2016.

No new snow fell overnight. Although 6-8 inches fell 48hrs ago. The skiing and riding right now is stellar. The mid-mountain base is holding 49 inches and the upper mountain base is holding 74 inches. The expected high for the afternoon will be around 31F with a low of 12F. Winds will be moderate from the northwest at speeds between 15-20mph and will be breezier in the alpine blowing around at about 30mph. Skies today will be mostly cloudy with a chance of snow showers.

The snow cats have been busy all night long laying down the best corduroy in the west. Be sure to carve your souls away today. If you feel like getting your jib on, the park gurus have made sure the terrain parks are in tip top shape. At the end of the day be sure to kick back and enjoy some Bluegrass music here at the Big Sky Big Grass Festival.

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!
