Timberline’s Last Event of the Ski Season

Timberline’s Last Event of the Ski Season

by -

LAST EVENT OF THE SKI SEASON
Timberline hosted its Local's Cup Race, an event opened to Alpine skiing, Telemark skiing, and Snowboarding.

That was in fact the last planned event of the ski season, with now only 6 more days of skiing.
The Local's Cup was a real success this year – I dare say the conditions were some of the best I have seen in many many years. This March 2013 will probably be in the books for a long time to come.

Here's a recap of photos for the entire weekend… there's even a picture of Doc:

ANOTHER EVENT
More snow… A lot more unexpected snow!

Rather light snow for the end of a ski season, and a lot more than I would have expected. Total accumulation may be reported as much as 18" (huge differences from as little as 3 miles away)

There's really not much to say: it was Epic.

CURRENT SNOW CONDITIONS
Yeah… Just see above.

Plus+   Tree skiing just couldn't be better, and you are not going to find anything like it at Snow Shoe.

ROAD CONDITIONS
Roads are finally cleared up rather nicely. I was beginning to wonder of our plowing system, but they have worked super hard all night.

It should be "smooth sailing" to Timberline, White Grass or Blackwater falls state park today.

TIMBERLINE GETS A NEW BLOG
It's official; Timberline Resort just got a new blog – it shall be updated every couple of days during the ski season.

We hope you have had a fantastic ski season – it looks like you may spend another 29 hours or so on lift-served and perhaps 29 more days "earning your turns" in the valley!
