All PARKING LOTS AT CAPACITY:
There are spots, though few and far between. As guest leave mid-day newly available spots with be filled.

Well things got a little moist up here on Wednesday afternoon – it wasn’t exactly raining, but it wasn’t exactly snowing either. We’ll just say things somehow got saturated. Either way you look at it the snow surface stayed in pretty good shape most of the day and those willing to deal with a little bit of moisture were rewarded with soft turns while we picked up an additional 2” of snow during the day! Looking towards Thursday we can expect much of the same with temperatures expected to reach the mid 30’s by midday and a chance for mixed precipitation at times. Winds are expected to be calmer on Thursday!

With this type of wet weather and freezing temperatures overnight there is a chance for ice to build up on chairlifts and haul ropes. This type of situation can sometime delay lift openings. Be sure to check this page often for the most up to date lift operating status as we head into Thursday morning.

Helpful Tricks and Tips

With new snow comes a reminder and a responsibility to understand Tree Well and Snow Immersion Hazards. Please stay up on good safety practices and always ski or ride with a buddy in eyesight/ if you are headed off-trail.

Remember that our Winter Uphill Travel Policy is currently in effect. Check our Hike Zone status in Lifts & Terrain section below to view which routes are currently open.

Drive safe and see ya on the slopes!
