Over TWO FEET of snow this past week!

We received over two feet of snow accumulation this past week and the skiing and riding has been phenomenal!  The forecast is calling for some snow showers over the next couple of days followed by a stretch of cold temps through midweek that should enable our snowmaking team to continue expanding on terrain. 

Lift ticket sales may be limited to ensure a quality mountain experience. Due to anticipated high demand, especially during peak holiday periods, lift tickets and rentals must be purchased online in advance. In the event lift tickets sell out, guests will not be able to buy them in-resort at the ticket window.  Season pass holder, Quad Packs, Buddy Tickets purchased with the passholder present are guaranteed access.


We are currently skiing and snowboarding on 27 trails and 125 acres of terrain.  There is great base depth in the glades after this past week's snowfall, we will continue to asses the surface crust and open when Ski Patrol deems it safe for the public. Our base depths are averaging 18 - 30 inches across all trails and surface conditions consist of primarily machine groomed with variable conditions secondary.  Please check our social channels, mobile app and MOUNTAIN REPORT on the website daily for the latest updates.

Lift Operations

All 5 lifts - the Summit Six Express, Spear Mountain Express, Barnyard Triple, Carpet 1 and Wanna Be Wild surface lifts are loading guests Friday through Sunday.  During the early end of the week we do not offer the Wanna Be Wild surface lift. 

Snowmaking / Grooming

Our grooming team has been plowing out Wild Side in preparation of opening the terrain park soon with three jumps on the top section.  Snowmaking has moved onto Upper Exhibition, Birches and Town Meeting and should get great production with the temperatures forecasted this week.
