Two Weeks Have Now Been Added To The Season!

Even more days have been added this spring so you can get out on the mountain and enjoy the great spring conditions! Daily operations will now continue through April 4th. This is the first time in 21 years we have been open for daily operations into April! Two full weeks worth of days have been added to the calendar this season so you can enjoy the great snowpack and the new Wenatchee Express chairlift. We are poised for an outstanding spring season with close to 120% of average snowfall through February and clear skies and sunshine to kick off March.
