Updated November 25, 9AM ... We've received 6 inches of new snow so far, and it is still snowing consistently as of 9AM. As expected snowmaking temperatures are ideal, and we're running full speed from the top of Chair 6, Sundown Ridge to Academy plus the beginner area.
It's too early to confirm but it looks very likely we will open Friday, and our goal is to open Chair 6 with intermediate and low intermediate terrain about one mile in length, plus our 400' moving carpet for beginners from 9AM-4PM. As we get closer to Friday morning we will announce our opening for certain, very likely tomorrow, Thanksgiving Day. Once we open facilities will include the Day Lodge restaurant, Jack's bar, Sport Shop, ski & snowboard rentals and our ski & ride school. Now is a great time to learn to ski or ride with our $99 3 Day Package.
Our plan is to open Friday, Saturday and Sunday, 9AM-4PM, close M-F, then open again on the weekend of December 5-6. If we get significantly more snow to allow us to open the top of the mountain we would reconsider and may stay open daily when that occurs. In any case we will open daily no later than December 19.
Our season pass sale ends November 30, prices will go up on December 1. You can purchase on line, in person or call (559) 233-2500.
