3/13/2021 Conditions Report

Posted on March 13th, 2021



10 AM Update: We have another beautiful day on the mountain, and the groomers are skiing/riding great this morning. Look for things to soften up as the day goes on, turning into spring-like conditions. Off-piste (non-groomed) will be variable across the mountain. Soak in the sunshine, and find one of our on-mountain shacks/cats to enjoy a taco, snack, or beverage on the hill! Day (9 am-4 pm) Tickets are SOLD OUT for today, March 13th, but we still have Night Tickets for our last night ski of the season tonight, and tickets for tomorrow still available.

Day (9am-4pm) Tickets are SOLD OUT for Saturday, March 13th. We still have Night Tickets available for our last night ski of the season tonight.

We are looking at a repeat of yesterday, which isn't a bad thing. We are looking forward to yet another beautiful day full of sunshine, blue skies, and great views! Expect groomed runs to start the morning fast and firm, and soften up as the sun dances across the hill. Off-piste [non-groomed] terrain continues to be variable around the mountain. 

Parking Lots And Overflow Parking

We do anticipate filling our Base Area parking lots to capacity both Saturday and Sunday this weekend. Once the main lots are full we will run shuttles from the auxiliary parking lots located down Mission Ridge Rd from the resort. Once overflow parking goes into effect, we will ask drivers to drop off passengers at a designated location in the front section of our main parking lot between Chair 1 and Chair 4. Once passengers are dropped off, drivers will park as directed by our Parking Staff in the auxiliary parking lots and be shuttled back up to the resort. Parking in the auxiliary lots and using the shuttle service is optional, but once the main Base Area lots are full, this will be the only option available other than returning to the mountain on a different day.

Shuttle capacity will be limited with socially distanced seating enforced. Shuttle drivers and passengers will be required to wear a face-covering at all times without exception. Shuttle windows will also be left open.

Purchase In Advance

For those unable to visit on Saturday , we suggest looking at joining us on the mountain Sunday 3/14 or midweek or next weekend. Lift tickets are available for advance purchase on our website for the next 10 calendar days on a rolling basis.

All chairs as well as the Pika Peak and 100Laps rope tows are scheduled for operation from 9 am to 4 pm.  Chair 1, Chair 4, Pika Peak and the 100Laps rope tows will be open for night skiing from 4pm-9pm.

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.”
