Snow Report  

 Looks like a gorgeous day to soak in the sun and play on the boards, with 35 slopes supporting machine groomed, spring skiing conditions and the sky supporting a hefty solar output. Put in some final slope mileage this week while this solid snow base is here for your skiing and riding adventures. The Ridge and Backyard lifts are not running today, but the North Face has some great snow and is open from 10am-4pm. Lift hours are 9am-4:30pm daily through April 2. 

 We're offering a daily lift ticket rate of $39/adults and $29/jrs & srs.  Four-hour tickets are $29/adults, $19 jrs & srs. Rental rates are $20, any age. Lift ticket and rental combo is $59/adults, $49/jrs & srs. (Rates are  not valid in conjunction with any other discount).
