I have to admit, things were looking pretty depressing just a few days ago. After record warmth and rain this month, we took a good kick to the stomach last Sunday and Monday. Things are looking a lot better now. What a difference a few days of cold weather makes. We had a good night of snowmaking last night and we expect a great night tonight. Our crew is doing a fantastic job of making as much snow as possible during this brief period cold weather before the holidays. There are some huge piles of white snow all over and our snow cat drivers are starting to blade them out and groom some trails. Beginning Wednesday night, we started concentrating our snowmaking efforts on our "bread & butter" runs on the east and west slopes as well as the beginner area and terrain park. We are hoping to have 10 runs open by 4pm Friday and 15 runs open Saturday. By about 1pm, our new rope tow should begin spinning in the terrain park. Runs opening this weekend should be Dan's Dive, Twister, Coulee, Nanny's Nob, Anna's Alley, and hopefully Leapin Liz and Triple R.
Please be advised: Expect snowguns running all weekend this weekend. If the temperatures allow, we will be making snow on open runs while we are open. This may be our last chance to make snow before the holidays.

Believe it or not, the skiing is still good where we have snow. If you like good spring snow...we have it. The terrain park setup is good and we have 3 chairlifts running and 8 runs open. After Sunday, that could change based on the forecasts I am seeing. We have revised our hours of operation for next week. We will be open from 3-9pm only Monday - Thursday. Stay tuned and be sure to watch social media and our snow report because with this kind of weather things could change anytime. The good news: colder temps and possibly snow arrive next week. It looks like we will get some decent snowmaking weather next week and we should be back in business. Thanks for your patience...winter is coming!
