New Terrain for This Weekend!

We’re off to a great start to the season and are making killer progress on opening more terrain across the mountain! We’ve had 5 consecutive 12-hour nights of snowmaking with almost all of the guns in our fleet blowing. I’m really happy with the product we’re putting out especially on Rufous. It’s skiing really nicely. 

New Trails Now Open:
Pauls Folly (expert)
Rufous (intermediate)
Lower Gamble (intermediate)
Lower Rolling Rock (intermediate)

Please refer to our Snow Report for the most up-to-date information on what trails and lifts are open. This is updated every morning at 6a!

In preparation for the next snowfall (in the forecast for tomorrow through Friday!), we’ve finished track packing Oops, Salt Lick, Downfall, Howdy, and Beep Beep. This will provide a solid foundation for any natural snow we will receive and expedite the opening of some or all of those trails. We’re planning to open Rolling Rock (intermediate) tomorrow and our terrain park crew has completed making snow in Badger’s Burrow and will start moving thumper opening day park features on Friday night and would expect to open 5 features mid-day on Saturday.
