Opening Monday 12/23

Skiing and riding for the 2012-2013 begins tomorrow!

We will open Monday 12/24 at 9am and close at 8pm, skiing and riding on 3 beginner trails and operating 1 chairlift.  The open trails include: Upper Dobie, portions of Potato Patch, Upper Cross Trail and Lower Cross Trail.  Operating hours for Christmas Day will be 10am until 10pm.  With limited terrain, we will offer a 30% discount on lift and GLS packages and both a 4 hour and 8 hour ticket session.  These discounts will be available for the first few days and will be adjusted as we open more terrain.

Snowmaking should resume on Wednesday, allowing for additional trail openings later in the week and over the weekend.  Eagles Swoop and Lower Dobie are almost ready and we have already started making snow on Tyro, Sunrise and portions of The Highlands.  The snowmaking improvements are working great, and the weather forecast predicts around the clock snowmaking temperatures starting Wednesday night.  As soon as temperatures allow, we will be making snow and opening more terrain.

The Plunge tubing park will require additional snowmaking and is expected to open for the weekend, please check this report later in the week for opening information.
