9:10 am Update

A thorough review of multiple forecasts in addition to current observations has led us to make the decision to cancel operations for today, Monday, February 22nd due to high winds. It is never easy to make the call to close but the weather has the ultimate say in these matters. Keep your fingers crossed for cooler temps and calmer winds to prevail and we look forward to seeing you on the mountain soon!

If you have a pre-purchased ticket for today you will be automatically refunded.

7:40 am Update

All Chairs are on wind hold due to high winds across the mountain. We are experiencing sustained winds near 60 mph with gust of 80+ mph. Wind speeds are not forecast to decrease until later this morning at best. We will reassess and update at 10am.

6:30am Report

The wild weather from the weekend continues on. We are experiencing high winds across the mountain this morning and they are forecast to continue throughout the day. It is likely that the wind will have an impact on chair lifts and operations today. While Chairs 1,the Wenatchee Express, 3 and both rope tows are normally scheduled for operation today, with the wind situation we will look to start the day with Chairs 1, 3, 4 and the Pika Peak Rope Tow. Chair 2 will open as conditions permit today. The 100Laps terrain park will be open but the 100Laps Rope Tow will be closed for maintenance. With temperatures ranging from 30-40 degrees expect precipitation to change with elevation. We received 2 inches overnight, surface conditions will vary around the mountain. We are seeing both soft, saturated snow as well as firmed up snow, expect your runs to be variable from the top down.

Chairs 1, the Wenatchee Express, and 3 as well as the Pika Peak rope tow, and 100LAPS Rope Tows are scheduled for operation from 9 am to 4 pm. *The Wenatchee Express will likely start the day on hold and we will open the chair when conditions permit. Chair 4 will be open to start the morning. The 100Laps Rope Tow will be closed for maintenance.

Please make sure to dress appropriately for the conditions and remember that we are asking that everyone use their car as their base camp as there is limited seating inside and capacity restrictions are in place for all inside spaces.

It is important that everyone recognizes that this season is different from any we’ve experienced. It is up to every individual, both ski area employee and guest, to do their part to help protect the health and safety of our skiing and snowboarding community. Our expectation is that each one of us will follow protocols to help keep each other healthy. We ask all employees and guests to share in this responsibility and help us, “be the reason we have a season.”
