Opening Day Thursday

Tuesday, November 24, 2015

What goes best with a big, fat turkey dinner?  Skiing, of course!  It will make that stuffing and gravy taste even better.  

We were trying for a Wednesday opening but after evaluating the hill this morning it became evident that our snowmakers should have the opportunity to take full advantage of the temps and then let the grooming team take over Wednesday night.  We think this decision will provide you with the best product possible.  Here are all the details you need to plan for your weekend.

Hours of Operation:  8 am to 3:30 pm daily, through the weekend. Yes, we will be open next week. 

Lift Tickets:  $59 Adult, $49 Youth/Senior, 5 & under free.  Lower mountain lift tickets (the only lift will be the Discovery Shuttle) will be $35 - this means we have terrain for beginners or folks who want to learn to ski or ride.

Trails:  We are still working on a map to share with you.  The following trails (or parts of) will be in the mix:  Long John, Deer Run, Launch Pad, Gulch, Cascade, Canyon

Lifts:  Bluebird Express, Discovery Shuttle, Heavy Metal

Carinthia Parks:  Gulch with features
