Temps dropped into the teens overnight allowing for continued snowmaking around the Village chair, and setting up the snow for tilling into tubes of our finest corduroy. It’s expected to warm throughout the day and snow is predicted for the afternoon. Looking into the future, we see the Metro Quad opening this Friday tying together the Stateside and Tramside areas of the resort.
