We are getting ready for the 2014-2015 Season! Last weekend brought a foot of snow, wind on the mountain top and bitter cold. Temps allowed for track packing on the top of Thunderhead, all of Olympic and mid Crystal (top wind blown). Typically we open the first or second week of December, it all depends on snow. So, think snow and get ready.
2014-2015 Quickly Approaching
CLOSED FOR THE SEASON
A great note to end on with a perfect Spring Day on the slopes. Thankyou for a wonderful season.
4/13/14 too good to miss!
9:50 update: Patrol reporting groomers awesome, EXCELLENT CONDITIONS top to bottom. Spring Skiing at it’s absolute best!! Groomers reporting in this morning with 2 inches of new snow on the 24 hour stake. Yesterday was a crazy day starting out with fog moving in that was thicker than Kurt had seen in his 16 years of working at Blacktail! In lifting it did not burn off, it SNOWED and the day just kept getting better. Heard alot of “boy I’m glad I didn’t miss it” as the snow mixed in and temps warmed, clouds finally lifted completely late in the afternoon for the beautiful views. Today we are starting out at 11 degrees with slight breeze and high thin clouds. Expect temperature to warm and increased sunshine. The snow is great with the 4+ inches of the last two days having mixed in really nicely for great groomers and the glades riding beautifully too. Purchase your 2014-15 Season Pass and use it today, other Montana ski area season pass holders get the half day rate as do college IDs. We are enjoying alot of winter this spring up here on Blacktail out on the slopes. Boy you had better not miss it!
11:15 update: SNOWING 9:15 Visibility 5 chairs this morning, unusual but should burn off shortly. Groomers reporting in this Saturday morning at 5am under northern lights with 2 inches of new snow. With an influx of cold air from Canada snow fell early in the night then clearing for a light show with calm wind and temperature of 26 degrees. New snow has groomed in nicely. Another day with fresh snow for this extra snowy season, purchase your 2014-15 Season Pass and use it for the rest of this season, early bird rates end May 16. Bring your shades, sunscreen and cameras it’s going to be a beautiful day on the slopes.
