Thursday, January 19, 5 AM... Consistent snowfall continues this morning, 12-14 inches so far, and more on the way! Today will be another powder day at the Peak. We will open as many lifts as weather dictate today but will have most if not all the mountain open with powder, machine groomer and skier packed powder. Highway 168 is open, very likely chairs or 4WD with snow tires; call (800) 427-7623 for the latest road update, say '168'.
Keep in mind when enjoying off piste terrain always do so with friends. Our professional grooming staff will be out the morning providing a machine groomed surface off several lifts. The beginner area is wide open.
Rooms are available at the Inn this weekend, book now and enjoy incredible conditions and stay on the mountain. We also have two and three bedroom condominiums next door at Huntington Lake, call (559) 233-1200 to book or go on line (Inn only).
For today we will have the Day Lodge, Jack's, China Peak Sports, Ski & Board Rentals & Demos, Ski & Board School, private and group lessons, our $129 3 day learn to ski and ride program, plus the Inn with J.W.'s Original Bar & Restaurant.
