In what has been heralded as a season for the record books, Marmot Basin has now broken yet another all-time record with the most snowfall ever for the month of November. A total of 163 cm of snow has fallen in the past month surpassing the previous record of 156 cm in 1990. “In my 29 years at Marmot Basin I have never seen such a high quality snowpack” said Marmot’s Brian Rode, VP of marketing. “Conditions do not get any better than this at any time of the year, let alone November. Every run on the mountain is in incredible shape, the runs are buried wall to wall in snow, and those who have made it to Marmot so far this season have had powder skiing and riding each and every day” added Rode.
Marmot Basin has now broken four records so far this season the first being when they opened on November 17, the earliest opening day for the ski area ever. On November 23 Marmot then opened their famous double black diamond terrain in Eagle East breaking yet another record, and then, on November 24, the Knob Chair opened breaking another “earliest opening” record. All this compliments of 163 cm of snowfall in November and the addition of a new 2 million dollar snowmaking system in the lower area.
“We expect record attendance this season now that the word is out that our snow conditions are as good as they get anywhere at any time” said Rode. “I have had the good fortune to ski at many ski areas throughout North America, including world famous heli-ski sites, and I can honestly say that it gets no better than this”, boasted Rode.
