Mirkwood Update

Posted by Scott Pressly

MCS Guides, Ski Patrol and our ski packers continue to make progress in Mirkwood Basin. The north and east facing slopes have been rolled, bombed, cut and stepped. On Saturday, we focused more on the south facing slopes of Elation Ridge and Lodgeview with the ski-packing crew. There is some more disruption rolling planned for Elation Ridge today. Ski Patrol has been setting up boundary ropes and other closure lines within Mirkwood Basin. A storm has rolled in that looks to put the icing on the cake over the next few days. There could be some very good news on Mirkwood this week. As always, stay tuned.
