Snow Reporter Comments

Good Morning Kirkwood!
4 to 5 inches of new snow up here at Kirkwood in the last 24hrs! Hopefully this helps fill in yesterdays tracks nicely. We're planning to turn 5 lifts today that will access 1200 acres of open terrain and 42 open runs. Our team put fresh corduroy down on 10 runs last night, but those will have some fresh snow on them. Breaking News! Palisades Bowl opened yesterday and Timber Creek is slated for tomorrow with Chairs 7 & 9.
Cheers,
Dan

I'm not sure about back country, pretty sure that's always open. The back side however, isn't open yet. Eagle bowl just opened though. A little crunchy in spots but overall great conditions. Cold temps have kept the pow in really good shape.
