9:47 am 04/16/14--The Beast received two fresh inches of snow overnight and suddenly it looks a lot like winter once again. Temperatures dropped rapidly last night, and some icing occured on the upper mountain and lift towers. We're grooming, patching and prepping for a great weekend, and plan to have the upper mountain back online for Friday.

To provide the best experience to you all, we're starting the day with 9 groomed trails and two lifts. Ski patrol assessing conditions throughout the day as the sun shines to hopefully open additional terrain. Snowshed Slope and a bumpy Superstar are connected via Highlander.

Snowshed Quad is estimated to turn at 9:30 am due to de-icing, but Superstar Express Quad will run on time at 9:00 am. Please note there is no beginner terrain access via Superstar Express.

The Superstar Express Quad is scheduled to operate from 9:00 a.m.-5:00 p.m. and all other lifts will operate from 9:00 a.m.-4:00 p.m.

Please be aware that late season spring conditions exist. Ski and ride responsibly.
