|Snow Inbound, Season Pass Still A Bargain!Hello Skiers and Riders!
Waaahooo! Snow is on the way. The winter storm advisory was just kicked up to a winter storm warning. How much snow, you ask? The forecast is calling for up to a foot of snow.
It is looking more and more like the three year cycle has flipped back over to normal rain and snow levels. What does that mean for the SOTC CREW? Not much, since we’re always ready to ski and ride on any conditions. Beyond creamy smooth groom, wicked deep POW and a general feeling of well being all week long, it also means a lot more terrain will open.

Cold overnight temperatures and recent snowfall have created ideal weather for opening-day preparations at Heavenly Mountain Resort, Northstar California Resort and Kirkwood Mountain Resort. Snowmaking is already underway at Heavenly and Northstar is on target to make snow this weekend; both resorts are set to open Friday, Nov. 21.
Thanks to its high elevation, Kirkwoods natural snowfall has begun to accumulate and the mountain is scheduled to open Saturday, Nov. 22.
Its great to see the arrival of cold temperatures and snow during October, said Pete Sonntag, vice president and chief operating officer of Heavenly. Opening day at all three resorts is less than one month away, and we are definitely in full-swing with snowmaking and preparations for a great winter. The excitement and anticipation of skiing and riding is alive at the resorts.
Equipped with two of the worlds most sophisticated snowmaking systems, Heavenly and Northstar ensure the most reliable snow surface conditions along the west coast. In optimum weather conditions, Heavenlys extensive snowmaking system is capable of producing three-and-a-half feet of snow across one acre in an hour and can cover 73 percent of the resorts 97 trails in machine-made snow; and Northstar is able to open all of its lifts solely with machine-made snow.
