Over the last 24 hours some pretty steady snow squalls left us with 4-6" of fluffy "Champlain Powder". This came on the heels of 2-4" the day before. While it certainly helped we can really use a bit more snow (and the right kind) for us to be able to crank things up. The issue at this point is that the limited base that we do have is of a "dust on crust" nature. Snow making operations have resumed and the boys are laying it down as best they can in the high traffic-low elevation areas and on the Practice Slope. (If you are up on the hill please stay clear of the snow making hoses and electric lines!) It looks like there is a chance for some more snow over the next couple of days and we should have some great snow-making temps too. We're certainly chomping at the bit to get the ski season cranked up here on General Stark Mountain but we really need some more help from Mother Nature. While we are hoping to open up for the season this weekend it is not looking great at this point and we will make a definitive call later on today We will only open if we can offer skiing up the main mountain. If we are unable to open this weekend the Ticket Office and the General store will be open for holiday shopping from 10 AM to 4 PM and Gen. Stark's Pub will be open for lunch. The Rental/Repair Shop will be also open from 10 AM to 2 PM for boot fitting, tunes and repair work. Be sure to keep an eye on the latest from The Single Chair Weather Blog and to this snow report!
