Spend the last weekend in February on the slopes! The warmer temps this week took out Buck Glades and Nose Dive; other glade areas are holding some snow. Exercise caution as you slalom through the trees. Our groomers were out until the wee hours of the morning to craft some corduroy on machine groomed slopes. We're open until 9pm all weekend so make plans to get outside and take in some skiing and riding time. Lift hours are 9am-9pm; the North Face and Ridge lifts are scheduled to open at 10am. The Backyard lift will be open on Saturday from 10am-4:30pm.
