Thursday shows face with 23F at 5am ahead of expected clear and sunny skies with the high at 38F and a lite SSW wind things on the hill today are shaping up to be epic fun. Winds will increase tonight as Friday looks to crest at 41F for the high before some snowy weather returns Friday afternoon into early Saturday morning. 3-6″ at pass levels is projected so here at the resort I’ll stretch and say 3-5″ based off trajectory and orographic lift for our area. Another weak system may show face come Monday but I’ll give that another day or to before we dig into that event. Coverage is great out on the hill with 100% terrain open so get out and ski/ride and enjoy the Pure Mtn Fun ethos! Stay tuned……..

Sender's Market's Weekly Ad & Grocery Specials Through March 9th. Shop Local & Save!

Posted by: thepinetree on 03/04/2021 10:49 AM
Mountain Ranch, CA...In 1950, we started out as a family operation with Erich’s father and mother, August and Freida Sender, in a century-old adobe building. The upstairs was home to the Sender family, and the first floor included groceries, a meat market, a bar, and a small eating place called Opa’s Smokehouse. On Christmas morning in 1968, the old store was destroyed by fire. But in June 1969, Sender’s Market, Inc. was opened. Since that time, there have been many changes, including remodeling, expansion, and the addition of many employees. That’s also when we added the truss plant and purchased Sender’s Market Ace Hardware in Valley Springs. Today, we're still family owned and still working hard to stock everything from pantry essentials to power tools. Whether you've got questions about the perfect cut of meat or the right kind of paint, our helpful, knowledgeable staff has you covered.  Click on images below for larger versions
