What’s going to open next? We’re planning to be open from top to bottom via Lift 1 on Saturday! This weekend will be one of our best opening weekends ever with the amount of terrain we’ll have open. Looking ahead at the forecast, we plan to do a hard push up top with continued cold temperatures forecasted at high elevations tonight. Plus, snow is in the forecast for next Wednesday!

On Saturday Lift 1 will be open with access to Sassafras and Butterfly!
