Posted on November 19th, 2018


Thanks to massive snowmaking efforts by our excellent snowmaking team, we will open Chair 1 on Friday, November 23rd through Sunday, November 25th to start the 2018/19 season. We are very excited to kick off the 2018-2019 ski season and welcome you back to the mountain! 

Season passes are still on sale at a discounted rate and are available for purchase here. If you already purchased a pass and have not received it, please email [email protected] with your info and we'll get you squared away.

Stay tuned in for additional details on special opening weekend ticket offers!

This Week's Forecast

The forecast is looking good for snow-lovers this week, with daily highs around freezing and nighttime lows in the 20's. Beginning Wednesday through the weekend, we expect to see a series of low-pressure systems move through the area, bringing a good chance of natural snowfall for opening weekend.

Opening Weekend Terrain

Terrain will be limited to Mimi. There will also be 4 features in the Lil' Bomber Terrain Park near the Base Area as well.

Early season conditions exist. Please stay on open runs and respect all rope lines/trail closures as they are there for your safety.
