Mary Jane winter park skiingWinter Park Ski Season 2010/2011

We were able to get out of the house and out of WInter Park and the Fraser Valley to get the first day of this ski season in at Loveland Basin.

Loveland received an inch of new snow Sunday night to go on top of the 40 or so they have gotten so far this year.  The snow conditions were awesome for November 1st and the weather could not have been better.  There was no wind, very un-Loveland like, and the temps were around 35 degrees.  Check out the pix above, it was as close to a bluebird day as you can get in early November.

Loveland had about five runs open, two of them were bump runs, and two lifts operating.  All in all a great first day of skiing since last April.

There is more skiing to be had in the next couple of weeks.  Copper Mountain opens this Friday, November 5th, and we will be trying to head over the pass and through the tunnel to get some early Copper skiing on Friday.  If you want to follow Winter Park Lodging Company’s skiing exploits this season follow us on the Winter Park Lodging Company Facebook Page.

More importantly, drum roll please, Winter Park/Mary Jane will be opening in two weeks.  That is November 17th so set your watches and calendars because the snow is looking to be great early season this year.  La Niña is expected to give us lots of wet, wet snow often this 2010/2011 ski season.  So if you haven’t already get your skis tuned, equipment washed up and your season pass ready for some skiing.

Ski Season is here and there is no better feeling than knowing the snow is on its way.
