Fresh snow on Schweitzer
7:18 a.m. January 9, 2018
By Schweitzer Snow Reporters

Yesterday’s Run-Of-The-Day was Whiplash to Will's Runout, through Tower 19 Trees and out to Vagabond! Wow, that was fun! The snow was on the heavy side and changed consistency depending on elevation and sun or shade exposure.

Overnight brought one-inch of new snow with a wintery mix at the lower elevations and granular snow starting at mid mountain. Lakeview and Snow Ghost trails should be a ton of fun! Go find the snow you want!

With the MLK Holiday this weekend there will be tons going on! Be sure to join us for Northern Lights Fireworks Show, the Deschutes Woody Wagon will be here serving up their delicious brews all weekend and there will be plenty of live music! Be sure to book a room so you can enjoy the whole weekend.

January is Learn to Ski & Snowboard Month and we have an amazing deal for those never-ever skiers or snowboarders out there! For $40, they can get rentals, a lift ticket and a group lesson with one of our amazing Schweitzer Snowsports School Instructors. Get them started today and get them hooked for life!

Overall, eight inches of new snow has fallen in the last 72 hours, with 171-inches so far this snow season. All 2,900 acres are open with an upper base depth of 64-inches and a lower of 36-inches. The primary surface is powder, secondary is machine groomed.

Snow is in the forecast for today with up to three inches possible on the mountain.
