Happy New Year!!!

We're ending 2017 on a high note! We're open today from 9 am-9 pm with 16 trails, a great snow base, tons of parties to welcome the New Year, and FIREWORKS over the slopes at 10 pm!

Come out and enjoy!

SNOWPOWER

We have been opening trails at a furious pace! The Highlands opened this week (Upper Cliff, Lower Turkey, Hydraulic and Logger's Alley), plus Upper and Lower Sunrise, Tequila, Lower Diamond Hill, and all of Tyro! 

We are currently making snow on Upper Diamond Hill. The forecast looks excellent for continued snowmaking over the next week. Thank you snowmakers! Go SNOWPOWER!

The Highlands Are Open!

We're open daily 9 am-9 pm for lots of skiing, riding and tubing, and for added excitement, The Highlands open today! Come out and get fresh turns on Upper Cliffhanger, Lower Wild Turkey, and Hydraulic.       

Upper Sunrise Opens Tomorrow

We’re in the midst of a nice long run of snowmaking temps, so we’ll continue building our base as we work to open more terrain. Upper Sunrise opens tomorrow and we are hoping to be able to open Lower Diamond Hill and Loggers Alley tomorrow also. Go SNOWPOWER!

The Highlands Open Thursday!

The gifts are unwrapped, now it's time to hit the slopes. We're open daily 9 am-9 pm for lots of skiing, riding and tubing! And the big news is... (drumroll, please!) The Highlands open Thursday!

Spend time with family, friends, and the great outdoors, plus work off some of those holiday treats (or make room for more).

SNOWPOWER Progress

Christmas brought many gifts, including the return of SNOWPOWER. Slope surfaces are refreshed and making for great runs. We are currently making a lot of snow on The Highlands - Upper Cliffhanger, Lower Wild Turkey, and Hydraulic. Did we mention The Highlands will open Thursday?! The 10-day forecast shows nothing but freezing temps - so the future is looking really bright!

New Year's Eve with FIREWORKS!

Speaking of bright, if you've never seen FIREWORKS over the slopes, you should come up for New Year's Eve. The sight of our beautiful snowy mountain lit up by sparkling fireworks is an unforgettable sight.

The fireworks start at 10 pm, but we've got Skiing, Snowboarding, and Tubing, different parties to fit everybody's style, Live Music, and FIREWORKS!

SNOWPOWER Returns for Christmas!

Temps are dropping and Santa is coming. We're all getting an amazing Christmas present this year - SNOWPOWER returns tonight to refresh the surfaces and work on The Highlands and Lower Diamond!  

Santa on The Slopes

When we said temps are dropping and Santa is coming, we meant that literally. Before Santa embarks on his yearly trip around the globe, he'll make a special stop on our slopes. Today, December 24, from 12-2 pm, Jolly Old St Nick will be cruising around the slopes with Christmas cheer and candy! 

Snow Forecast

With snowmaking returning tonight, we'll be working hard to open The Highlands as soon as possible. There's even the possibility for some natural snow tonight. We don't expect much accumulation, but even flurries are a great way to celebrate Christmas. Looking farther ahead in the forecast, there's the possibility for up to 5" of snow on Friday. That means we could have POWDER next weekend!

Merry Christmas, everyone! Wishing you all the joy, hope and MAGIC of the season! Check out this timelapse video from the first few days of snowmaking this season.

Awesome Opening Weekend!

Thanks to everyone who came out this weekend, it was a phenomenal opening weekend with lots of smiling faces! We opened with 7 trails and by the second day we were already at 10 trails. Conditions were cold and dry, resulting in a surface that was a joy to ski, ride and tube on. We’re open daily for more snow fun – come and get it!

We’ll see temps that are a bit warmer this week, but our deep base of 20”-30” won’t go away fast. Even if you don’t have snow in your backyard, don’t worry – we do! We’ve built up a lot of snow, so this week you’ll be able to enjoy it with temps that are above freezing. Shed a layer and enjoy great early season conditions.

Tubing will be closed today and tomorrow (Monday-Tuesday) to rebuild for the holiday. Tubing will open for more tubular fun on Wednesday. If you’re planning to tube, please buy tickets in advance as it is very likely that we will sell out. Tickets are available for purchase starting on Sundays for the following week.

SNOWPOWER

We have some chances for snowmaking during the next week, and rest assured, we will be ready to go at every opportunity. Colder weather will be back before you know it and we’ll get back to pumping out the white stuff.

Tubing will close on Monday and Tuesday to rebuild for the holidays and will reopen Wednesday with normal hours. Please be sure to buy our tickets in advance for tubing - it always sells out!

SNOWPOWER Returns

Last night we fired up SNOWPOWER at 6:43 pm and have been pumping snow onto the slopes ever since! We’re lucky to have a great snowmaking forecast for the foreseeable future: freezing or near-freezing temps both day and night. Rest assured, we will be making snow at every possible opportunity! Our snowmakers are the best. Lots of people think of SNOWPOWER as just the snowmaking system, but it’s also the people. Snowmakers, mechanics, everyone who helps us get ready for the busy winter season, all of our friends, family and fans who come enjoy the snow – they’re all a big part of SNOWPOWER. Go SNOWPOWER, Go!

Opening Day

The big announcement is: projected opening day is December 15!

We are focusing on laying down a quality base on our core slopes and making sure that we have a strong opening with great conditions. How many slopes does that mean? We’re not sure yet, but we’ll keep you up to date on this blog and on social media. Do you follow us on Facebook? We posted several live videos last night of the beginning of snowmaking. Look for more awesome updates like that in the future!

What about Tubing and The Highlands?

This year we asked Santa to bring lots of great skiing, riding, and tubing for Christmas, and we think we made his “Nice” list!

After we open with core slopes, we hope to open tubing the weekend before Christmas, and we hope to open The Highlands during the Christmas holiday period.

So wax up your skis and boards and get ready to slide – the time is coming soon!

BRING. IT. ON!
