Opening Day Forecast

10AM update: It felt so great to be back on the mountain this morning, getting up top to the summit, and seeing those amazing views! Our snowmaking crew did an amazing job getting those groomers ready for us, I just had so much fun skiing down Sunspot and Tumwater. It’s a great day and we’re loving seeing all your smiling faces!

Early morning report: The 23/24 winter season is here! We’re excited to shake off the rust as we welcome you all back to the mountain for the first time this winter!
