Getting ready for winter

Getting ready for winter

October 2, 2015

You may not know this, but there is a lot to do before ski resorts can open their doors to the public when the snow starts piling up. With a little over a month and a half before projected opening dates, crews are working hard to mow slopes, move T-bars, and even create new runs to navigate through this season.

Check out these photos and get stoked for winter as resorts prepare the slopes for everyone to enjoy. #WinterIsComing! and we couldn't be more excited to the slopes with good friends and find some epic powder.

The fine folks at Troll Resort have been mowing their slopes to make sure that the runs are flowy, and free from debris during early season conditions. 

Mowing on a slope can be difficult at times, we thank the crews for all their hard work!

Over at Whistler Blackcomb, crews are preparing (in early season snow!) to move the iconic Showcase T-Bar on Blackcomb Mountain.

All this construction and early season snow has us stoked for winter!

Fernie Alpine Resort's brushing crew has been working on creating new runs this season. The areas highlighted in red will feature a couple of new bowls and chutes.

Apex Mountain Resort is getting ready for another season with some lift maintenance, a vital step to keeping every one safe while hitting the slopes.
