Season is over and I know a lot of people were really disappointed in the parks again this year. I'm just a lowly part-time snow carnie supervisor there with zero clout, but I was happy to see this...

There isn't much left for park, but if you just want to ride then conditions are pretty damn good for this time of the season. Dasher during the day and Cupid at night. No lift lines on either of...

Wausau got slammed with pow and it's still snowing. No joke. I'm thinking at least 10" of freshies. If I didn't have a rush project at the day job I would have taken a pow day for sure.

So the...

I only mentioned Mother Nature because GP focuses on opening runs before working on parks. It's just business for them. Majority of people that come are here to just ski or snowboard, not hit 50'...

Mother nature is not cooperating at all this season, but we aren't alone.

All lifts are running and I believe us to be about 90% open. Glades in the East/West are at your own risk.

Good base and people who come just to ski or snowboard are pretty happy from what I...

Not sure what everyone else got, but GP received a well needed 6-8 inches of freshies last night. I expect all lifts except Dasher to be open by the end of the week as well as more park features.

After a long and boring Sunday night here is what I have -

Comet is going to be your only lift open. 5 runs open that you'd ride. Conditions are typical "spring" time. Corn. Slush. Slow.

I wish I had better news, but mother nature is just not cooperating with us this season. Extended forecast sucks for snow making weather.

Best case scenario I see us with a dozen runs open. ...

Looks like Black Friday is going to be our first day. I'm thinking Comet Express will be the only lift running and maybe 6 or so runs. No park. Way too early.

They are really hammering the guns...

Still trying to get my wife out riding and a new setup would definitely help that considering we both work at a ski hill!
