Opening Day 2014-15
Hooray! Opening day is Friday, November 21, 9AM. We're opening a week early with the “2015 Preview Weekend” with 2 lifts running from 9AM to 10PM on Friday, 8:30AM to 10PM on Saturday and Sunday from 8:30 to 4:30PM, serving 4 slopes or more, depending on the natural snowfall and snowmaking progress. There will be terrain available for advanced beginners through advanced skiers and snowboarders. The slopes will then be closed from Monday, November 24 through Thursday, and will reopen for the season on Friday, November 28.
Snowmaking began on Monday, November 19 in preparation for the 2014-15 Winter Season. With single digit temps and our automated snowmaking system, we're maxing it out and laying down a great base on Cindy's, Mardi Gras, Morning Star, Yodeler, Candy Cane and more. Great start to the season!
