Man, posts like this make me wonder why I am living in the midwest. It is better than nothing, though. Wish I had a hikeable hill near my town.

I'm confused. If it was only hiking, than the mountain wasn't open, right? Doesn't open mean selling lift tickets?

I'm also confused. Don't you need, like, snow to get first tracks?

I don't know how it could be open. I'm in NE WI and the last three days its been between 70 and 75 degrees. At night it was only down in the 50's. Tyrol Basin is a solid 100 miles south east of me. Hasn't even been cold enough to start making snow. Looks like another solid week plus before any hills are even going to get a chance to start snow making.

We where selling tickets , $10 or you could use you season pass. Wed. they had approx. 110 skiers/boarders and Thursday it was about double. The snow was a good depth on the part of the run that was open and they had about 5 or 6 rails or jumps built on it with room for us non fly boys to carve a few turns.

Our GM is the King of snowmaking and our area in in a valley that has slightly colder temps than the surrounding real estate. They had snow guns lined up every 10' and when the temp dropped just enough they would fire them up for as long as they could.
I kid you not the snow was like perfect spring conditions, soft fast and clean, none of that black gunk that you get late season. Depth was great, you could use your new boards if you wanted to.

I'm not sure if we'll be open this weekend, but we where open in force in Oct. Tyrol Basin does amazing things to open early and close late. We've run Nastar races in April and May. Several years they've used the old M. Brewers in field tarps to cover the have pipe and then have a spring jam in June.

Might have to check it out to get my first ski in when they turn the lifts on. My home hill is Granite Peak and rumor is they hope to fire up the snow guns at some point in the next 10 days so they can have 10 or so runs open for Thanksgiving week.

Brule Camp

I'm going to be taking my family up to Brule for the Thanksgiving camp for the first time. My sons were both J6 racers with Cascade's ski team last year, and will participate in the camp. Looking forward to it.

Its worth the trip, lots of really nice people at Tyrol, just check their web site and they'll list the opening of the chair lifts. Early in the day is best if its limited opening, but no matter the time you be able to find an opening to make a run. They usually set some terrain features off to one side for the jibbers to hit leaving the center open for carving.
