I know that many are enjoying a warm fall across the country, and winter is a full two months away. So it may be hard to believe that it has been snowing in many parts of the Rocky Mountains including the Big Six Mountains. There has been steady and heavy snowfall across the Big Six for the last week. As much as 10" of snow has fallen. All of the Big Six ski slopes and ski trails are now open.
Chief Ranger Bill Jefferson informs the GAZETTE that skiing conditions all across the Big Six are good to excellent. His rangers are already out patrolling the region for the usual winter dangers such as avalanche. Ranger Bill says his rangers have seen nothing at all on the slopes to be concerned about at this time.
Big Six Ski Lodge is offering free or discount skiing and ski list passes. Right now, those who book a two-night or longer stay at the lodge for the start of ski season (Nov 15 to Dec 25, 2010) will receive a free ski and lift pass to any of the ten lifts and 35 ski runs in the Big Six area. To celebrate the early opening of ski season, Big Six Lodge is offering discount ski and lift passes good from today to November 15.
The Big Six has ski runs from beginner to advanced, Superpipe for snow boarders, great ski trails, and excellent guided back country skiing. So come to Knotty Pine's Big Six Lodge for some great skiing this fall.
