We are open! The 51st season at Welch Village has begun. It was great to open the place today and see people on the chairlifts, hitting terrain features, carving down the slopes, smiling, and welcoming winter. For most of today we had Heidi's Hollow open and the Zero Chairlift. Around 3:30pm, we were able to open Lookout and the #2 Chairlift. Not bad for opening day after a warm fall! Thank you to all of you shared opening day 2015 with us. We are hoping to open Fowl Play tomorrow and we are also looking forward to a clear and cold night for snowmaking. Shoul d be a great weekend to get out here and dust off the cob webs. At this point, we still planning to close Monday-Thursday for snowmaking and re-open next Friday, probably for good.
