The sun has set on our 60th ski season. Thank-you for helping us make this a great one! Our first day of skiing was November 18 this season, we had 126″ of natural snowfall, the season lasted for 126 ski days and was marked by lots of winter sunshine. This season will be partially remembered for some incredible powder days including a 14″ dump on Christmas Morning! We will also remember that in the first 8 days of April we had more natural snow than in the entire month of January.

Every year is different and we are already looking forward to seeing you back on the slopes for the 2018-19 season. Season Passes will go on sale in late August. Save 10% on your season pass by purchasing before October 10th. Families of four or more save 15% on passes purchased before October 10th.

Thanks for a great season!
