The resort opened on Friday and with the addition of the Bridger Gondola on Saturday, they’re already offering 2,700 feet of vert and it’s only November 26.

Steady snowfall over the last few weeks made for solid coverage on the upper mountain, and the fresh dusting on Friday night softened things up nicely.

The morning was gloriously bluebird, with spring-like temps rising throughout the day. While pow-hungry shredders are impatiently awaiting lift-accessed cold smoke, it’s hard to complain about ripping smooth, sunny corn top to bottom.

“Warm temperatures with a mix of sun and clouds fill the air as we close out our opening weekend. Expect high temperatures on the mountain to push into the upper 40’s as we carve up a soft early season carpet. Mountain Ops and Ski patrol have been working hard preparing the mountain and opening new terrain. Today will be no exception as the Thunder Quad joins our list of spinning lifts. It’s going to be high 5’s and smiles all day long, so come on out and spend an afternoon with the Gentle Giant.” -Lege [11/26/17 6AM]

High pressure will contined today but decreasing temps and a chance of snow is forecasted later tonight. Fingers crossed winter returns sooner rather than later.
