Rainy Thursday Before A Sunny Weekend

Today’s featured image is from App Ski Mountain on a drier day.

Rain, rain go away, we want to play today.

It is going to be a dodging raindrops kind of day at times today as a system moves through the entire region. We can deal with the rain, but unfortunately, it looks like we may also have some thunder and lightning to deal with as well throughout the day – but especially this evening.

Today is definitely going to be a great day to be weather-aware as you play.

On the bright side, the weekend, however, looks fantastic.

We will deal with some pesky showers on Friday (maybe even mixed with a snowflake or two), but those won’t be as widespread as today’s rain.

Saturday and Sunday are looking fantastic with sunny skies and moderate temperatures. It will be a fantastic spring skiing weekend.

There is still plenty of snow to play on – which is a testament to how great this season has been as well as our snowmaking and mountain operation crews. It has been fantastic for sure.
