Thank You For a Great Holiday Weekend!

A big thanks to everyone who came out this holiday weekend! Lots of fun was had by all -- skiing, riding and tubing on great snow with spring skiing temps.

The weather may be a bit warmer than usual but we still have a lot of snow and almost all of our trails are open. Despite temperature challenges, snowmakers (or should we call them snow magicians?) are working hard to deliver an enjoyable surface. Their hard work has paid off, we have maximized snow production at every turn and preserved trails and conditions to an amazing degree. Keep an eye on The Slope Report and keep thinking cold.

In the meantime --now is the time to enjoy some spring skiing!

Why is Spring Skiing Great?

  • Warmer Temps – No need to wear your ski mask or take breaks to warm up. Milder temps will have you peeling off your heavy outer layers and enjoying the freedom of skiing in a light fleece.
  • Longer Days – As we edge toward the first day of Spring, we’re adding a few more minutes of sunlight every day. More daytime on the slopes!
  • Soak Up Some Vitamin D – More sun means you can soak up more bone-strengthening, cancer-fighting Vitamin D. Just make sure you wear sunscreen so you don’t get a sunburn!
  • Quieter Slopes – Some people forget that we still have snow, so it’s less crowded most days. You’ll breeze through lines and have lots of room to carve your own lines in the snow. You’ll feel like you own the slopes!
  • Great Deals – Our Ski & Ride More Package includes lodging and lift tickets from 9 am day of arrival until 5 pm day of departure. That’s 8 extra hours on the slopes, and rates start at just $89 per person! See Ski & Ride More details
