|In the last 24 hours a strong and wet three inches of snow fell around Ely, blanketing ancient snow in a soft, clean white.
Our faithful groomer hit it right away in the morning. The corduroy was so perfect it was mind-blowing! Dizzying!
Expect great conditions at Hidden Valley for the weeks ahead. The base is incredibly firm (right?!), and now there is fresh to cover the debris of early March winds.
Recommendation: ski now. Ski often.
Back Country trails at Hidden Valley are still open but the Bowl has been closed due to icy conditions. We need a little fresh snow.
Thank you for returning. I'm blown away.
A few inches of snow fell over the past few days. Problem is, we don't know how many. If the snow would've just fallen vertically, the skiing would be fantastic. Still, our groomer does his job and we are in business!
Don't be fooled by the icy sights from the parking lot. Get on the Birch Highlands or the Sommers or even most of the back half of the Bambas, and you are skiing in mid-winter conditions. Avoid the bowl and the powerline.
See you out there! Tyler Fish's Post on Facebook
Cool weather has returned and our base of snow has held up reasonably well. The trails have been groomed, classic tracks set, and for the most part all trail are open. Now we just need a little fresh snow.
All ski trails at Hidden Valley are closed for now due to this heat wave and rain in the middle of February. Ugh! We still have a base of snow and the trails will be reopened once the temperatures drop. Think snow.
