100% open for the weekend - Freestyle Doublecross Sunday.

Great snowmaking conditions are allowing us to freshen up the surface, add base depth and put the finishing touches on our last to open trails.  The weekend looks ideal with cool temps, sun and clouds, the chance for a little natural snow and great surface conditions.  Make plans to head this way!

Operating Hours:

Skiing and Riding on 24 trails with 4 lifts operating.  - Open 9a - 10p

Terrain Park:

Upper Diamond Hill Progression Park-  OPEN -  2 16ft flat boxes in a line, battleship rail, 12ft flat rail, small jump and 10ft pipe spine.  The bottom section of the Progression Park will be closed today so Chris and his crew can build 2 new features for the weekend.

Main Park- OPEN - elbow kink, 20ft down pipe, wide butter box, up tank, a frame box, 1 medium size jump.  Boarder Cross event on Sunday - The crew is working on the course set up, establishing berm turns, etc.  The Main Park will be closed during the event, re-opening after.


The Plunge is open with sessions from 1:30p - 10p

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


Outer limits is almost complete.  The grooming staff have pushed this trail out several times and requested a little more snow in spots.  Overnight, we will pull off this trail and allow them to dress it up for tomorrow's opening.

Turkey Shoot is semi open with guests skiing some of this area on natural and a little overspray from snow guns.  Putting a grooming tractor on it requires a little more snow...  We plan to run in this area today so we can till it out overnight tonight.  Once we till it, it will show up on our report as open.

Sunrise Glades is skiable in sections.  We plan to run the guns on skiers right of Upper Sunrise today and tonight and let the wind carry this snow into the glades.  Wind blowing across Acorn provide this opportunity. 

All good news!
