General Comments
Light snow returns to freshen up the snow pack today. But keep in mind, with the low temperatures, and low sun angle this time of year, the snow stays very skiable, and that's what you will find on the mountain today. Snow is expected all the way down to Portland, and the Gorge, so be prepared for a longer, slower drive today. Patience, and safe driving is the key. We’re going to try for Vista, weather and visibility dependent.

Lift tickets are available for advance purchase online, along with adult and children’s lessons, equipment rentals and Daycare. The Sahale Grill, Bull Wheel Bar, Wildflowers, Schuss, Alpenstube, Fresh Tracks, Higher Grounds, the Ren Cafe at HRM AND the Mazot are open today.

Join us for our Welcome Home party in Sahale featuring Double Mountain Brewing samples and live DJ from 12:30 - 3:30.

We have amazing deals at the High Performance Center and Outer Limits on remaining gear from last season. These deals are limited to stock on hand, so treat yourself to some new gear for the new season. We'll see you up here soon!
