Welcome to the 2023-24 ski season. Just kidding, but it’s always exciting to see some summer snowfall at ski resorts.
On Monday, Pomerelle Mountain Resort in Idaho shared something white on its webcam. It appears like they received a dusting, but a snow reporter would probably measure it as two inches. Obviously, with it being summer, this melted quickly during the daytime. It’s still exciting to see though, and it means that we’re inching closer to winter.
With Pomerelle’s base elevation being at 7760 feet, this means that it can get more snowfall than lower-elevation ski resorts in Idaho, with the Indy Pass partner averaging 500″ of snowfall each season.
Pomerelle is a bit quieter in the summer, but it does have some activities. Its main activities include mountain biking trails, disc golf, weddings, and other events. Each summer, they host a mountain biking race. Called the Pomerelle Pounder, it’s part of the Utah Gravity Mountain Bike Series.
Dan Jones, who was one of the competitors at the race, described what he liked about the course to KMVT:
“It’s always a fun course because it’s not open year-round, so I think the lack of maintenance makes it more rugged and downhill, so it’s always a good course to come up and enjoy.”
