Powder Day In The 'Boat!

Straightline Guides - Friday, January 18, 2019

The official report says that 13 inches fell on Thursday night at mid-mountain, but there was easily 20+ inches at the top this morning and it continued to fall all day making for the deepest powder day of the season, and for that matter it is the deepest day in the past two years! Snow was heavy, deep and surfy with free refills all day! [Read more...]

January 11th Snow Report

Straightline Guides - Friday, January 11, 2019

This week started off with some surprise powder days! On Sunday we saw a few inches long with high winds which closed several lifts. However, Sundown remained open and the winds pushed most of the powder into the trees on sunny side which made for soft turns in the trees. On Monday we saw a few more inches and surprisingly soft conditions. [Read more...]

January 1st Snow Report

Straightline Guides - Tuesday, January 01, 2019

We started off the new year right this year with 6 inches of fresh powder which made for some amazing turns! To escape the crowds, we suggest heading over to South Peak lift and checking out Broadway trees, Land of the Little People and South Peak trees. 1:30 trees stayed pretty soft all day, as did the golf course. The golf course is accessible from Pony lift. [Read more...]

Blackmere Trail Report

Straightline Guides - Tuesday, January 01, 2019

One of the most popular hiking trails on Emerald mountain, Blackmere trail is a fun, winding, multi-use trail that leads up to the quarry where you can find stunning views. The trail can become quite crowded on the weekends however, on week days there is easy parking and less people on the trail. On the ski up there are lots of friendly people and puppies playing. There are bikers, skiers, hikers, runners, and even some sledders on the trail so be aware of the other people using the trail and be respectful of the rules! [Read more...]

December Snow Report

Straightline Guides - Wednesday, December 26, 2018

Early season this year has been phenomenal with plenty of snow fall and cold temperatures. The resort is completely open and the snow is SOFT! We have seen many frequent, smaller storms which have kept conditions excellent and terrain well-covered. Most tree runs are extremely well covered, which means no worrying about rocks, stumps and other natural obstructions.  [Read more...]

November 26th Snow Report

Straightline Guides - Monday, November 26, 2018

Conditions are great for early season right now on the mountain! We saw significant snowfall over the weekend and cold temperatures are promising as most of the snow should stick around. Snow is wet and heavy which is perfect for a solid base to last for the entire season.  [Read more...]

April 11th Snow Report

Straightline Guides - Wednesday, April 11, 2018

Winter has been holding on strong through the spring this year. We've had several sleeper pow days up on the mountain which has been excellent with no crowds and  fresh lines This morning is warm and sunny, however we should see some more snow on Thursday and Friday. Skiing powder should be fun all day on Friday with snow from Thursday night's snow and additional snow throughout the day. On Saturday morning  should be good as well, although the sun is predicted to appear again which could turn the snow to mashed potato conditions by noon. After that, clothing day on Sunday should be dry and sunny. [Read more...]

March 14th Snow Report

Straightline Guides - Wednesday, March 14, 2018

Spring is creeping up on us pretty quickly! Blue skies, slushy snow, and longer days make for a super fun afternoons on the mountain! We have been enjoying sunny side laps just between 12 and 2 pm when the snow is a perfect consistency. We don't recommend going up too early because it is still pretty icy early in the morning until about 11 depending on when the sun starts shining.  [Read more...]

March 6th Snow Report

Straightline Guides - Tuesday, March 06, 2018

The days have been sunny and it's starting to feel a lot like spring time here in the valley. We did get a nice little storm on Sunday night into Monday which made for some soft turns on Monday morning. It looks like that may have been the last storm we get for awhile though, with warm temperatures and sunny days ahead this week. Make sure to break out the spring hoodies and sunscreen because it's going to get warm out there!  [Read more...]

February 28th Snow Report

Straightline Guides - Wednesday, February 28, 2018

We can not believe today is the last day of February! Winter has being flying by- and we are still not seeing much snow! We did see several storms last week, each one was small but every flake counts! It is nice to see that most groomers have adequate coverage and there are always  stashes to be found! Just look out for rocks, stumps, etc. that would normally be well covered by this time of year. We have seen a lot of injuries this season due to unexpected terrain and hard drops. [Read more...]
