General Comments
Good evening! We've had spring skiing for days (weeks?) and now it's time for something different. All systems point to go. We are all geared up and ready for the snow to fall. Our trees are a little whiter; and snow is forecast all day today and tomorrow. Hello winter. We missed you. Stay for a while, k? Skiers and riders, keep up with those snow dances! We'll keep you updated on the weather up here and hope to see you soon!
Specials & Events
Haven't been up due to snowpack rumors? We think you'll be surprised how good it is. Take us up on our great conditions guarantee this week. Purchase a special $49 ticket online. Ride for an hour. If you're not satisfied, you can go home and use that same ticket for a future midweek visit. On Saturday, we've got a Steeps Clinic and a free Avalanche Awareness class. Come up and ride some laps with pro skier Sammy Carlson and submit your entry for prizes in our Instagram contest! We've also got a freestyle clinic Sunday.
