Glancing at their interactive trail map I would guess ~50% or just a bit more by acreage.Mammoth was 63% open by trail count, has to be the most terrain in North America by far.
Took a bit longer than I predicted, but but generally right concept. ABasin opened both Pali and Beavers lifts ahead of the new Lenawee Express, which is now expected to open later this week.if I were Al (GM of ABasin), I would have been making snow on Molly Hogan and across the base area to Pali lift and also on the lower part of Dercums gulch in hopes that I could get something like West Wall or Grizzly Road open in the next week or so...
Standard operating procedure for Targhee: Only 5 of the past 27 seasons had Targhee been under 90% mid-December. But the 82% on Nov. 19 was a clear early sign of a good season.Looks like Targhee is now almost 100% open (94 of 95 trails) and JH looks to be about 70-75% open. Been a good start to the early season in the northern Rockies. Big Sky does not seem to have as much terrain open.
Immediate ski quality will be problematic with high density snow and avalanche control. But unlike in Colorado the avy danger from this storm will be over within a week.bad for avi behavior and skiing.
That reminds me of how Mad River Glen's website mentions after a deluge that they're "letting the mountain drain." The Kirkwood pic takes that to another level.Rain to at least 9K at times. Picture is 7800' base of Kirkwood.
