Paige Lary, Directorial Editor

Yesterday’s forecast called for a chance of snow, but unfortunately, that snow never came. Today will be sunny and very windy, and the next chance of snow won’t be until Wednesday. Wednesday’s projected chance of snow is 60%, with a total accumulation of less than half an inch.

All chairs out of Main Lodge are operating. Most chairs (except for Chair 20) are operating out of Canyon, and Eagle has opened Eagle Express (Chair 15).

South Park and Wonderland have also opened, with some super fun beginner-sized features.
