A foot of fresh powder helped Marmot Basin’s first week of operations get off to a stellar start.
The snow gods were generous to those skiers and snowboarders praying for fresh tracks on a fresh 2015/16 season. While the lower mountain was skiable on opening day, November 13, fat flakes on November 15 and 16 helped get the upper mountain ready to shred ahead-of-schedule. The 31-cm storm was followed by a bluebird day—just what the marketing team would have ordered so the bounty could be photographed.
“It could not have come at a better time,” said Rob Ellen, Marmot’s mountain manager. “We got walloped.”
