Switching over to Daylight Savings Time is never easy, but today's skiing and riding made the adjustment that much easier. Bright March sunshine and a good dose of fast corduroy were all we needed to banish most traces of drowsiness this morning, and cool, crisp conditions kept us busy across all 57 trails and 344 acres of terrain. After my first run this morning, I wasn’t upset that I’d lost an hour of sleep; I was glad I'd hit the slopes an hour ahead of schedule.
While we’ve been enjoying an excellent stretch of crisp blue skies and groomers lately, the weather could turn decidedly snowy this week. Snow showers may freshen things up with a quick inch of snow tonight, but a much bigger storm looms on the horizon for Wednesday and Thursday. It’s still a ways off, but Thursday could be a genuine, no-holds-barred powder day. With a deep snowpack in place and 57 trails currently open, a good-sized storm could give us incredible conditions over 100% of the mountain. March is typically one of our snowiest months here at Loon, so there’s good reason to be very optimistic about this one.
