Sunday the 4th is a "Locals Appreciation Day," which means that everyone (including you) can buy a ticket for $25. They don't check IDs, it is just a deal day for eveybody. The snow is good.
It's possilble I'll be there, but probably unlikely unless they get a huge dump, which is starting to look more likely. The Avalanche Report is predicting 8-18 in the next 48 hrs, with another storm coming in after that for the weekend. Your timing could be right on.http://avalanche.state.co.us/Forecasts/S+San+Juan
