February 15, 2022. Woke up to white.
Don’t ever let someone tell you that a few inches doesn’t make a difference. We woke up to a beautiful storm this morning with several inches of new snow in the Conrad Creek and Talbot Creek areas. Seven runs today, five in the snowcats this morning before transitioning to the aircraft to finish the day. […]
February 10, 2022. Magic.
8 runs today on the Thursday single day. 5 runs in Cold Creek and 3 runs in Dry Fork. Stability is great so we are skiing places we haven’t skied for 10+ years. Cold, shallow powder still exists on north facing terrain with variable surfaces elsewhere. 16 new arrivals tonight for the weekend tour. Active […]
February 5, 2022. Take it to 11.
Ten runs yesterday, eleven runs today. Cold snow in Thomas, Box Canyon and Talbot Creek. High Pressure throughout the Western US, 21 runs in two days at Ruby. The skiing is good and we are just getting started.
January 27, 2022. Right Fork gives it up.
Six runs in Lamoille Canyon and Right Fork today. Soft, cold, recrystallized snow in Right Fork providing the best snow of the day. 16 new guests arrive tonight for the weekend three day package beginning tomorrow. High pressure looks to remain in place for the next week with good flying conditions expected.
January 21, 2022. Best of the year.
A surprise 8 inch overnight storm fully reset all of our terrain. 6 runs in the Lamoille Canyon Area. We heard the magic words many times today, “Best day of my life.” Clear, cold and calm for the next few days.
January 16, 2022. The beginning.
Our first guests of our 45th season arrived this evening. We finished our guide training week this afternoon and found recrystalized surface snow and good skiing in upper Talbot Creek. There is good skiing around in North facing terrain and good coverage above 9,500 feet. Great flying weather is expected for the first tour of […]
January 13, 2022. Buzz Round Here.
Much like the rest of the Western US, the Rubies have been under high pressure for second week of January and it looks to persist for at least the next week. The Ruby Mountains received more than a meter of snow with the strong low pressure December storm cycle which impacted the majority of the […]
December 26, 2021. What a Christmas Gift.
The flow continues. It is like the mountains knew when December started that they needed snow. Since the second week of December it hasn’t really stopped. Feet of new snow in the mountains. The Lamoille Valley has seen a strong wind and snow event in the last 24 hours with 3-4 foot drifts causing the […]
December 19, 2021. Getting Close.
10 Days ago looked very different in the Ruby Mountain and Lamoille Valley. A large storm cycle brought beneficial moisture and snow to the Great Basin with more than a foot of new snow at Ruby 360 Lodge. For the first time this season we made it to the top of Conrad Creek (9,800 feet) […]
October 11, 2021. Things to come.
More than 6 inches of snow in 24 hours at Ruby 360 Lodge with feet likely in the upper elevations. The best October snowstorm in years. Keep it coming. Good things to come.
