Clearing Skies Later Today

Not an ideal morning, however, this rainy start should end around mid-day.  As the weather improves, colder air moves in allowing snowmaking to begin early tomorrow.  The forecast for the next 7+ days looks great, with cold temps and the possibility of a little natural snow.  Normal Winter conditions mean snowmaking, a great snow surface and additional trail openings this week.

Operating Hours:

Skiing and Riding on 15 trails with 5 lifts operating.  Open 9a - 10p

Terrain Park:

Fun box
Box line - (2) 16ft boxes and an  A-frame box
Rail line - Urban style down rail, 8 inch pipe set up flat, side by side rail and a small jump.


The Plunge is open with sessions from 9a - 10p.

Ridgely's Fun Park is open from 11a-4p

Snowmaking Plan for this week:

Rebuild, refresh the surface and open more terrain.  Relatively simple 3 part plan.... 

We have a good forecast for the next 7-10 days, providing lots of snowmaking hours.  As soon as the temp permits, we will begin refreshing the surface and repairing any weak spots.  We have stockpiles of snow that we plan to push out.  This snow will assist in building up thin areas and widening terrain. 

While doing all of the above, a big portion of our snowmaking capacity will be focused on opening new terrain.  The Terrain Park, Lower Diamond, Lower Cliffhanger and Devils Elbow are all on the "next open" list.  All of this terrain is expected to open this week.
