Warmer than usual weather has made it necessary for SilverStar Mountain Resort to temporarily suspend operation of one of its 10 lifts.
The Alpine Meadows Chair and associated runs were closed today.
As well, a handful of trails served by the Comet Express lift were also closed.
Staff is busy clearing trees felled by high wind and heavy wet snow.
SilverStar Mountain Resort:
“With the incoming weather changes please be aware that some of our operations may be affected. With the new snow and some incoming wind events, we will continue to do danger tree mitigation throughout the mountain. Because of this, Alpine Meadows and select narrow runs may be closed affecting access to E lot and some terrain. Please respect all mountain signage as we work through these challenging weather events.”
Fresh snow and an artic airflow are expected by this weekend.
