Making Snow

We have 5″-10″ of new snow and are firing up the snow guns. We’re hoping to open SOON! If you haven’t done so already, enter your information in the bottom right of the page to get notified on powder days!

2016’s FIRST SNOW!

It is great to see the snow coming down it is hard to tell how much we have received as the strong winds have blown and drifted the snow all over the ski area, unfortunately we have not received enough snow to open the slopes or the tubing hill at this time. We will be watching the weather and looking to make snow when we can. The pattern looks to get stormy and colder as we move into December. Snow on the ground by Thanksgiving is always a good sign for the upcoming winter! Wishing you and your family a Happy Thanksgiving. Keep thinking snow!!

After such a great weekend with good conditions and lots of sunshine we were hoping for more of the same but apparently mother nature doesn’t feel the same way. Thank you to all our customers that came out to support us this season. Even though the season was shorter than all of us would have liked we did have many good days of skiing/snowboarding. Have a great spring and summer and let’s start thinking snow right now for next season! (by the way, next season has a lot of potential to be a very good winter)
