After seeing the success at Fernie Alpine Resort in British Columbia, Copper Mountain is becoming the first ski resort in the United States to adopt the Avalanche Cat program. As it turns out, there is an overwhelming uptick of dog allergies in the U.S. and by offering avalanche cats as an alternative, Copper Mountain can continue providing topnotch safety efforts without asthmatic aftermath. The Snow Report show has the story.
For this weeks’ Livin @ Altitude, we traveled to Aspen Snowmass for the First Tracks experience courtesy of the Limelight Hotel. First Tracks gives a select number of skiers and snowboarders premiere access to the slopes before the lifts open to the general public. That translates to uninterrupted top-to-bottom runs on perfectly groomed snow.
According to OpenSnow, California and ski resorts throughout Lake Tahoe are about to get pummeled by a giant winter blob. (I am not a meteorologist. I just play one on TV.)
Believe it or not, we’re already looking to next year. Now is usually the time to pick up your 2016/2017 season passes for the lowest available rates. And if you’re at Mount Snow, the lowest available rate is free… assuming you know your trivia.
