April 6, 2022. 45 years of memories.

We started this season mid January. Seems like yesterday and through it all, one day at a time we had one of the best seasons in the 45 year history of Ruby. We finished the 2022 season on April 6th skiing 9 runs of cold snow in the high alpine reminding us all of how […]

April 5, 2022. A day in lower Talbot Creek.

Seven runs today in Lower Talbot Creek. It was 20 degrees F when we started the morning today, a mid winter feel instead of the first week of April. Temperatures stayed cold throughout the day and there was a nip in the air with a strong north wind throughout the day. Wind kept us in […]

April 4, 2022. First day of the last tour.

Three runs in Conrad Creek in the cats to begin the first day of the final tour of year 45. Windy conditions pushed us into the cat terrain. We skied 3 runs with variable snow conditions due to strong winds and cold temperatures that did not allow the sun to heat the snow surface. Light […]

March 31, 2022. Thank you March.

We said thank you to March today by sending out the month with 7 runs in Thomas Canyon and Talbot Creek. A quick moving storm moved through the area last night with 2-4 inches of new snow throughout terrain. It was an incredible spring day in the Rubies with blue skies, light wind and great […]

March 30, 2022. The best day of the tour.

The majority of the first two days of this tour were spent in the snowcats in Conrad Creek. The various weather forecasts had all been saying Wednesday was supposed to be the best day of the tour. It delivered, a beautiful Nevada blue sky day to finish the tour. Seven runs in Thorpe Creek, working […]

March 29, 2022. Cat to heli.

Fueled by last night’s shot ski. Morning clouds obscured all of our top landing zones this morning so we headed to Conrad Creek and the cat terrain. Lunch in the Ruby High Yurt and 4 runs in Conrad followed by an improving sky condition which allowed us to finish the day with 2 runs in […]

March 28, 2022. Lemons to Lemonade.

Never underestimate this place. 6 runs in Conrad Creek in the cats with good spring skiing conditions. The sun came out and we were all reminded of how magic this place truly is. Snow is expected tomorrow. […]
