Snow Report  

Available January 20-22, 2017 Only: In celebration of our 60th Anniversary, we're offering Open-to-Close lift ticket rates of $60/adult and $50 for juniors/seniors. Four-Hour Flex tickets are $25/adult and $15 for juniors/seniors.

Learn to use those edges and carve up the corduroy! Most trails are machine groomed, but it's icy in the glades and ungroomed areas.  Lift hours today are 9am-9pm, and all 58 runs - 100% of our skiable terrain - are open for turning and learning. It's Learn to Ski and Snowboard Month, meaning there are lots of opportunities to tune up your slope skills by taking a lesson with our Snowsports staff.  Plus - purchase one open-to-close ticket at our ticket window on Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday and receive one FREE lift ticket for a friend. (Tickets must be used on the same day; not valid with any other offers, specials or discounts. Valid only during January). Bring a friend to the slopes this month!
