On Saturday morning, Eaglecrest Ski Area reported about 1.5 inches of snow fell overnight - but that was not enough to fill in the gaps, especially at mid-mountain. Snow continued to accumulate during the day Saturday.
If snow continues to fall in the next few days and the longer-term forecast looks favorable, the ski area reported it will consider a limited opening.
Until the ski runs open, the ski repair shop at Eaglecrest is open each day from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., and the cafeteria is open on weekends.
