Black Hills Slopes Benefit From Head Start

December 13, 2013, 7:17 PM by Kevin Woster

Black Hills Slopes Benefit From Head Start

It's that time of year again in the Black Hills high country, where deep snow waits for those who love a smooth ride downhill.

The Terry Peak Ski Area near Lead offered early skiing last weekend, then closed to spend the week preparing for its full-time opener on Saturday. Marketing director, Linda Derosier, predicts near-perfect ski conditions on a deep base of snow.

"Last weekend the conditions were outstanding and I'm sure this weekend they're going to be better, because we've ever had more snow over the course of this week" Derosier said.

The staff at Terry Peak hustled this week to prepare for the expected flood of skiers and snowboarders. Rental equipment was touched up and supplies stocked inside, while the crew outdoors worked on ski lifts and grooming equipment expected to be heavily used during a full-time season that is only hours away.

"And while it's quiet here on the slopes today, tomorrow, that'll be a different story."

At nearby Ski Mystic Deer Mountain, the staff is excited about Saturday after a couple of weekends of skiing and tubing under conditions general manager, Alicia Salas, calls "amazing."

"We had about eight foot in October. We were able to track-pack it down, save our snow and start with a really nice base," Salas said. "And currently we just got 10 inches of fresh powder and we're ready for the weekend."

And for the swarms of thrill seekers likely to love what they find on the slopes.
