Snow is piling up quickly and since our early update we have had an additional 2-3 inches of natural snow totaling 5-7 inches of freshies! The forecast calls for continued snow throughout the day and temps to stay in the low 30’s!

We will continue to make snow as conditions allow. Skiers and riders may find snowmaking operations in effect on OPEN trails.
