    Were you up at the top of Snowpark? That's where I've seen this map before.

    It gave me the impression that snowbowl had James Niehues paint their new map with the fully-finished expansion, but also had an interim version with that stuff clone stamped out in PS.

    Pass pickup Sunday morning. Lots of discussion and speculation about the lift as we were waiting in line. Guy inside ticket office said that the load test was scheduled for 15th (or 19th?).

    I suppose in this case "just fine" means that it won't be load tested and ready to operate on opening day.

    That map is at the top of lavelle.

    went and got my pass today. car in the ditch, line of like 20 cars going up, people skiing up and down all over the place at the base.

    Anyway, I skied again today. glad I checked the temp at pt 6 and saw it was 20 degrees warmer than in town otherwise i probably would have just stayed inside.

    I feel like they would have mentioned something by now? Website doesn't seem to have any updates, haven't seen any social media posts. It didn't really seem ready to go yesterday as far as grooming and cat tracks and whatnot. Lavelle was running for a bit while I was up there and some patrollers were skiing. But hey they have one more whole day!

    Snow is pretty good though, been up there a bunch and will probably go again today.

    In true Snowbowl fashion, Snowbowl has resisted any good sense in posting notifications, however, the very fact that patrollers were up there yesterday, suggests that they will indeed open tomorrow, since I can recall, in previous years, the patrol not showing up until 10 am on opening day to check the mountain out. The Morrises are not inclined to doing any work before the last minute, so it is not surprising the snow report (on their web site), and the snow phone, have not been up-dated, and still have the end of the season messages.

    I don't doubt they will open tomorrow, I will be up there for opening bell, and will have my AT gear in the car, just in case.

    Only SnowBowl would have their opening day information buried two pages deep on a 90ies era looking web page format.

    That has been there for months. Note it says weather depending, and has said that for months.

    If they open, look for the low-key announcement after 6pm tonight.

    I think it is telling that the snowphone is connected, though the message is from spring, I called it a week or so ago, and it was not connected.

    Okay, so I was able to get up for an afternoon lap today, and signs seems to point in a positive direction:

    - The Snowcats had been working to pack and groom runs. Groomed the out-run up to pat's bumps, and there was another buzzing around the base area when I skied through.
    - Several patrollers (clearly junior patrollers) skied past me down Paradise, carrying ski boundary signs and sticks.
    - Patrol stashes has been cleared and prepped
    - closed signs were posted up at the classic bowl entrances.
    - Bunch of Snowbowl employees drinking/smoking together in the parking lot.

    Plus the skiing was great.

    I asked a patroller and got a non answer. But yes starting to look more like an operating ski area. no chairs on the new lift yet though.

    Snow phone just updated to state they are open tomorrow. Friday, 12/9

    I only found that buried in the comments of their recent Facebook post (posted by a customer).

    The wife got a $10 gift card to the new Panera in town (from work of all places). She won't spend it out of spite and I refuse to go, so we keep it above our mantle.

    That was a washed out attempt by me. Vet appt for the pup scheduled for 830 this morning and wife didn't want to cover it herself (pup needs lifted in/out of the truck). I finally rolled up there just before 11am. Parking lot was almost full, parking down the road almost to the hiking lot. I gave up and went home. It reminded me of why I was getting there close to 9am last year to secure parking without a hassle.

    Good luck if you are going this weekend.

    Sounds like their attempt at a "soft opening" failed. Hopefully the snow was at least soft.

    Interesting. I popped in probably an hour later an snagged a vacated spot near the front.

    You either go really early or show up lazily late. Seems like there's always a bunch of AM-only skiers on most days.

    Plenty of beargrass stalks to mow down with each turn.

    The cars were backed up, but I don't think the lot was full. That happens. People will just park on the road even if there are spaces in the main lot. It CAN be difficult to navigate.
    It doesn't help that because they're so close, nobody carpools. Maybe they'll get the bus running soon? Anyway, epic fail because...

    ...it was great! Now we need some more, but this big store cycle looks like it's headed to Tahoe, Utah, and Colorado. Maybe something will happen this week.
    No longer stuck.

    Was anything off Lavelle groomed? Asking for my 6-year-old.
