Snow Report for Friday, December 9
21" Mid Mountain / 31" Upper Mountain
Powder/ Packed Powder
Good evening Big Sky!
4” of new snow fell has fallen since 4 PM yesterday. We are still under a Winter Weather Advisory through tomorrow at 5 PM with 4-8 additional inches expected. It’s currently snowing and we anticipate the snow will gain strength in the overnight hours. The skiing today was really great and conditions will continue to improve through the weekend. We are in an extremely favorable weather cycle and the remainder of the month should be quite snowy!
Tomorrow’s forecast is calling for snow mainly after 2 PM with additional accumulations of 1-3”. The snow should continue through the overnight Saturday and provide us with another great day Sunday! The turns this weekend will be killer! We can expect a high of 21F and winds blowing out of the West Southwest between 20-25 mph. The upper mountain settled base depth is 31” and the mid mountain settled base depth is 21”.
With La Nina conditions in effect, Big Sky should see the continuation of steady accumulations over the coming weeks.
The Tram is now open with access to Liberty Bowl! In addition, we have opened the Headwaters Lift, ThunderWolf, and of course the Powder Seeker 6 is up and running. Our Mountain Operations Team is working extremely hard to open new terrain as soon as conditions warrant. Stay tuned for snow totals and new openings the next couple of days; the conditions are going to be excellent through the weekend!
Think snow and I’ll see ya on the mountain!
*Early season conditions exist; please ski and ride with caution.*
Our lifts are scheduled to run daily from 9:00am - 4:00pm unless otherwise posted and weather pending. Lift Status last updated at 8:13pm MST.
