We're operating our Buttercup lift and a rail park from 11 AM - 4 PM today. The pictures show how we're able to do it. Great job by our mountain team to harvest the parking lot snow and transport it to Buttercup for distribution.

Slow to Drop Freezing Level Means Saturday is Out - How About Sunday?

Categories: Guest Connection Weather Blog Media Center

Anticipation - the freezing level is taking it’s sweet time dropping. We are expecting snow but it won’t accumulate soon enough for us to prepare for Saturday. Our snow harvesting crews are standing by to move what we can in anticipation of Sunday operations. We will keep you apprised here on this blog and our conditions page as we start accumulating and ultimately transporting snow. What lifts, how much will be open and hours of operation are dependent on the snowfall, and we’ll update as soon as it is determined, most likely by early Saturday afternoon. Thanks for your patience and think snow!

Wet Weather is Dampening our Thanksgiving Friday Operations

We share your passion. But even with our best efforts, it looks like this wet weather will affect our original plans to operate Friday. We’re just going to need more natural snow (and colder weather) and that just isn’t in the forecast until Friday evening.
