Highlands is Open!

Highlands has opened for the season today with Upper Cliffhanger, Hydraulic, and Lower Turkey. Conditions are some of the best of the season and will continue to get better throughout the weekend. We also have some more terrain opening up for the weekend. Saturday we expect to have Lower Tyro, Devils Elbow, and The Gap. There is also a chance we will have Upper Turkey and Crosscut for Saturday which would mean we would have 23 out of 26 trails open. Winter is here and we are loving it. 

We are also keeping an eye on a snowstorm that is supposed to impact the area Sunday into Monday. Did someone say FRESH POWDER!

Lift ticket sales may be limited to ensure a quality mountain experience. Due to anticipated high demand, especially during peak holiday periods, lift tickets and rentals must be purchased online in advance.
