Word spread that Jupiter was opening yesterday and people began to line up and wait for patrol to give the signal. As mountain patrol dropped the rope, our guests came speeding down Jupiter Access to be the first to get a taste of the soft, powdery snow waiting for them in Jupiter Bowl. Excitement was in the air, hooting and hollering could be heard from the lift and high fives were given at the bottom. It was a perfect bluebird day with powder turns. What more could you ask for?
Here are some of the comments from our guests:
"Best day of the year. Blue skies, fresh snow. brand new terrain. It was awesome."
"This is awesome. Jupiter is open, there's pow, untouched tracks."
"It's really good up there. Nice and deep, it's what we've been waiting on. Thank you Park City patrol, everybody. We appreciate it."
