I know that we are all chomping at the bit and wondering when more lifts and runs will open, and that my answer of "we're waiting on the weather," isn't all that satisfying. To help everyone get a better idea of what our forecast is looking like, here are a couple of resources:
In addition to this, we also have a local meteorologist who gives us a Park City Mountain Resort specific forecast specific. Here's what he had to say this morning:
(December 1, 2008, 5:15am) A little cloudiness lingering over the mountains this morning, but overall a drier air mass and partly cloudy skies most of today. A cold front will reach us around mid afternoon tomorrow bringing occasional snow or snow showers for a couple of hours, then tapering off after midnight. We should see a couple of inches at the base, and a little more on the upper half of the mountain. The 700 mb temperatures drop to around -9'C behind the front, but we'll see a return to some milder temperatures by the end of the week. The overall flow pattern will begin to undergo changes during the week of December 8th, and should lead to a more favorable weather pattern and not an unseasonably warm high pressure!
So, know you know as much as we do in terms of what the weather outlook is, I'll post here as soon as we have a more accurate idea of when we will be opening more of the mountain.
