    The good news is there will be no lift speed induced wind-chill.

    I'm hoping it warms up a little for Sunday. Last Saturday was pretty nice. Frost in the am but I was in shorts by the afternoon.

    I don't think they have posted it yet, but I got a staff email already saying that Thunder is closed Friday due to "weather".
    If you guys come out, bring trail bikes...

    I suppose that is a good idea. Thanks for posting. We'll have to think about alternatives.

    The Skiers are definitely itching to start making snow, but they've barely had a frost yet.
    The park is definitely open this weekend, and likely next weekend...
    It wouldn't surprise me next week if Juggernaut is closed so they can make snow over in that zone though.

    They are blowing snow and it's stacking up on bike trails. Tickets are NOT discounted.
    Sorry.

    Idgaf. En route now. Last lift day this season for me. I just want to hit jumps and make my tires scream in some berms one last time.
