Temperatures are expected to warm up as the week goes on, but they may still allow for some high elevation snow making at night. As the weekend approaches, temperatures are expected to drop and some natural snow is expected to fall.

Al’s Blog: Ramrod Is Open:

“Ramrod is open for the season. The cat drivers spread the piles last night and the trail is ready to go. This has been a very good snowmaking season for us so far. Lots of very pleasant and fair days, but good, cold nights. Today and tomorrow our snowmaking team will be transporting equipment to the Upper Mountain. Now our snowmaking focus zeroes in on Lenawee Face, Dercum’s Gulch and Molly Hogan with a special objective of getting Lenawee Mountain Lift open.”
