Red Mountain to open Saturday

Red confirmed that T-bar and Magic Carpet runs will be open for the first full day of skiing from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m

Fresh snow falling is good news for skiers, as Red Mountain gets set to open on Saturday.

Red confirmed that T-bar and Magic Carpet runs will be open for the first full day of skiing from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., following two weeks of unseasonably warm and wet weather courtesy of the Pineapple Express.

Since Wednesday about 10 centimetres of snow had fallen by Thursday afternoon, and the white stuff is forecast to continue to fall into Monday.

As snow conditions improve, more runs will be open to the public, even as early as Saturday. Skiers can keep up to date by going to redresort.com.

White Water will also be open on Saturday with limited terrain on Summit and Silver King lifts. Crews have been doing their utmost to ensure skiable terrain, including weed-wacking lower Sluice Box and moving dump trucks of snow. Go to skiwhitewater.com for updates.

According to the Salmo Ski Hill website, the hill is scheduled to open from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. over the holidays, before starting night skiing in the New Year.
