10:07 pm 03/11/14--You probably already know that there is a major snow storm headed this way, but it sure felt like spring at The Beast today. Snow total predictions continue to change but we expect furious snow to begin Wednesday morning and continue through Thursday. Keep refreshing this page for updated snow totals we promise to keep you in the loop with each new snow stake reading.
The Beast basked in the sun today and tonight our dedicated groomers will push, till and smooth the softened snow into soft corduroy on 73 trails to prepare them for a fresh dump. To feed your need for speed, Ovation, Superstar and East Fall will all be groomed to perfection, as will cruisers such as Bear Cub and Great Eastern. Meanwhile, Double Dipper and Cascade will remain untouched overnight because they are skiing great and the texture from your turns will help these steeps hold powder better.
Ski patrol opened Growler and the head walls of Cascade and Downdraft today, and with a little help from Ma Nature tomorrow they will drop ropes on The Throne and Royal Flush. And be sure to remember that Wednesday is a Canyon Quad day! All scheduled lifts will operate from 9:00 a.m.-4:00 p.m.
The K Parks crew is hard at work preparing the Stash for next week's Slash and Berm, but don't worry, you can still ride 59 features including 27 that are literally stashed in the trees. Next door on Dream Maker you can find 23 features including a jump line and a perfectly placed rainbow rail. Ramshead is home to 3 parks: Neff Land with 18 features; Timberline with 15 features and the freshly re-cut pipe; and the Easy Street Progression Park with 8 features.More Details
