The Good News (and bad news) for this weekend

Good News first. According to current forecasts, the rain for this approaching storms appears to end early afternoon tomorrow, possibly as soon as 1pm.  That means, the Bakkelyka Brew and outdoor music event (3-7pm)appears to be ok.  In fact, the sun may even be shining when you taste your first beer at 3pm.  Tickets still available online until Friday at midnight for $15.  $20 in person Saturday.

The Bad news.  We are foretasted to receive about an inch or 1.5 inches of rain today, tonight, and tomorrow am.  As a result the mountain bike park will be closed today (Friday) and most likely Saturday.  That's really a bummer because we were excited to have the ski swap, brewfest & music, AND the mountain bike park all happening at the same time!  I just walked the trails now and they are rock hard, so hopefully they will shed water and dry quickly.  Say a prayer....we might be able to open Sunday at some point.

MTB Update:  Rain or shine...this is the last weekend of mountain biking for this season.  We have several weeks of work to do on the Lookout chairlift.  The priority is to make sure it's ready by early November by the time we start making snow.

Bakky Brew Update:  It's still on!  If you don't want to partake in the beer tasting, admission is free.  We will be selling beer and food all day & night.

Big Ski & Snowboard Sale today 4-9pm and Saturday 10am-5pm

**Old School Season Pass & 4-pack Lift Ticket Special happening the same time as the ski & snowboard sale!  In-Person ONLY!

The leaves are really turning in the Welch Valley.  Join us this weekend!
