11/20 Pre-Season Update

We continue to target the end of this week for the opening day of the 2023/24 winter season. The collective stoke is high, and we’ll provide daily updates as the week progresses. Forecast colder temperatures should arrive Wednesday night through the end of the week and allow the Snowmaking team to get back out doing what they do best! All of our teams have been working around the clock whenever conditions allow to bring everything together for opening day. Should the weather cooperate, we would be looking at a limited opening on Chair 1 and the Wenatchee Express (Chair 2) from 9 am to 4 pm. Open runs would likely be Sunspot, Tumwater, and Mimi. We will be scheduled to have all of our Base Area services open (Ticket/Pass Office, Rental Shop, Retail Shop, Ski School) as well as the Chair 5 Pub and Ka Wham Cafe restaurants with limited early season menus. Additional runs and Chairlifts will be added as conditions permit.

Now is a great time to do a last-minute check and ensure you have everything you need to hit the mountain! We still have three Season Pass options available. Daily lift tickets, rentals, and lessons are also now available to purchase for the entire season. We even have a couple of exciting Black Friday and Cyber Monday offers dropping soon as well.
