Another snowstorm blankets Marmot Basin
Marmot Basin, October 15th, 2010

Marmot Basin got hit with a whopping 25 cm of snow last night!

While work crews are busy making final preparations for Marmot’s November 11 opening, local skiers and snowboarders woke up to a big surprise: snow covered peaks in all directions. “There’s nothing like a huge snowstorm in mid October to get our local skiers and boarders fired up”, said Brian Rode, Marmot’s VP of Marketing and Sales. This is shaping up to be a repeat performance of last season when we had record snowfall in October and November”, added Rode.

Marmot ski patrol and lift maintenance crews are getting the mountain ready for opening day and, while the snow that blankets the mountain will force them to make some changes to their work schedule, it will not slow them down. It just means that some of their work will now be done on skis and snowmobiles rather than on foot or by truck, something no one here is complaining about!
