February 22, 2024. deuces.

It’s easy to tell the truth. Clear, cold and calm for the halfway point in the 2024 Ruby season. Six runs today, three in terrain we had not yet skied in 2024 so far. Long , 2k+ foot runs in Lamoille Canyon to start the day with east facing aspects then moving to north facing […]

February 21, 2024. one of the best.

We woke up to six inches of new snow at Ruby 360 Lodge and it continued to snow all day. More than a foot in the last 12 hours at the lodge elevation. Most guests departed early this morning with blizzard conditions to get an early start on the departure day after completing the run […]

February 20, 2024. like we have done this before.

Ten runs on day two of the three-day tour. The best skiing of the day was in Talbot Creek with cold boot-top powder skiing. We also skied in the Lamoille Canyon Area which had a bit more wind on the snow surface in exposed areas than anticipated from overnight. We found good skiing in sheltered […]

February 19, 2024. on a Monday.

Conrad Creek delivers, again. Eight runs on day one of the three-day tour with heavy snow through the day in the snowcat skiing terrain. Six to eight inches of new snow through the day with excellent powder skiing each run. The Ruby Mountains are currently 139% above average snowfall for this time of year, one […]

February 18, 2024. on the sauce.

We heard Sunday is a day of rest, which typically isn’t the case at Ruby. However, after 8 runs Friday, 10 runs yesterday and waking up to a blizzard with 30-40 mph winds and several inches of new snow at the lodge, all three-day guests departed this morning after completing the run guarantee on Saturday. […]

February 17, 2024. high life.

Ten runs in the alpine with excellent skiing conditions on each run. An incredible day in a season filled so far with incredible days. 18 runs in the last 2 days with an incoming weather system approaching for a reset throughout terrain. 4-8 inches of snow is likely by tomorrow (Sunday) evening. The lodge is […]

February 16, 2024. the giving tree.

Eight runs on the first day of the weekend three-day tour. Clouds kept the upper elevations of the Ruby Mountains obscured through the day with no landings opening throughout the day. The snowcat skiing and snowcat terrain in Conrad Creek has been providing us incredible skiing throughout the season on days when the aircraft is […]

February 15, 2024. crazy thiccc.

A very wintery day. Heavy snow, strong winds, thick clouds. Four to six inches of new snow overnight and a full reset of all Ruby terrain. We were able to get two runs in the aircraft, one in Conrad Creek and one in Talbot Creek between strong snow squalls which moved through the mountains all […]

February 14, 2024. hearts & chocolate.

Yesterday, we hit the 18 run guarantee and skied 4 runs of extra vertical. Monday and Tuesday were 2 of the best days of skiing this season seeing terrain we opened for the first time in 2024. There was a deteriorating weather condition expected today with increasing wind, cloud and accumulating snow likely this evening […]

February 13, 2024. eleven:eleven.

We followed up yesterday’s eleven run day with another to match. The first time in Cold Creek and Ground Rez/ The Thorpe Saddle in the 2024 season. We finished out the three-day tour run guarantee and groups skied 4 runs of extra vertical. Shallow, fast powder allowed us to cruise through terrain and stay ahead […]
