1:05 pm 11/26/14--The snow has arrived, and an inch is already on the ground. The first Nor'Easter of the season is bearing down on The Beast, perhaps bringing significant snowfall for Thanksgiving day. Luckily, cold temperatures and favorable snowmaking conditions have also returned; resurfacing is underway and terrain expansion will soon follow.

The cold temperatures will stick around through the holiday weekend so we still expect to have a very snowy Thanksgiving here at The Beast, complete with connectivity on every mountain area from Skye Peak over to Ramshead, including beginner terrain on Snowshed.

For the weekend we also plan to be skiing Superstar under the guns, along with Blue Heaven, Launch Pad, High Line and Cascade. While we're at it this weekend we're going to crank on the snowmaking over at Pico Mountain too.

Four lifts, including the Superstar Express Quad, are scheduled to turn Wednesday and key lifts will operate from 9:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m. Please note that available terrain is for advanced skiers and riders; no easier terrain is available at this time.

Be sure to check out Holiday 101 for all the latest information on base lodges and resort services available now and through the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday weekend.
