On the Mountain

0 Comments 21 November 2009

The new snow is really going to help Alpine Meadows get ready for the December 5 opening day! Although there isn’t a cloud in the sky today, temperatures remain nice and cold – so cold that snowmaking continued through the morning and into the afternoon!

Lots of skiers and riders came up to the mountain to check out all the new snow; and many brought their gear to hike up a bit and make their first turns of the season.

VIDEO UPDATE:

Pro skier Jeremy Benson hiked up to get some turns in today at Alpine Meadows:
