NOVEMBER 18, 2021 UPDATE
After an early taste of skiing and riding in October, we’ve been counting down the days when we can get back on the slopes. But the month of November has brought unseasonably warm temperatures and no substantial snowstorms so far, so we will not be able to open for daily skiing & riding on November 24 as planned.
The Aerial Tram will open for sightseeing November 24th – 28th and our Village festivities will go on! Join us for Thanksgiving Dinner in Olympic House and our Welcome to Winter events Friday – Saturday with shopping discounts for Ikon Pass holders, happy hour specials, photos with Santa, and our annual Christmas tree lighting.
We are now targeting to re-open the slopes in early December, as soon as conditions allow. Our crews are prepped and ready to make snow whenever temps are low enough to get us back on the hill as soon as we can. Thank you for your patience and do your snow dances!
NOVEMBER 8, 2021 UPDATE
With low temps last night, our crews were able to fire up the snowmaking guns for the first time this Fall! We made snow at the bases of Red Dog, Resort Chair, SnoVentures, and Treeline Cirque.
As we prepare to re-open the slopes, we’ll be making snow at every opportunity as temperatures allow. Stay tuned for more updates!
NOVEMBER 2, 2021 UPDATE
Thanks again to everyone who joined us for one of our earliest opening days ever last weekend (October 29), and to our employees for their colossal effort in getting the mountains ready so quickly after our first big storm.
While we were hoping to keep the ski & ride season going this weekend, Mother Nature has other plans. Due to warm temps, some rain and melting snowpack, we will be closed for skiing and riding this weekend. Daily operations are scheduled to kick off on November 24, but we will continue to assess snowpack and open sooner if conditions permit. Stay tuned for more updates.
Although the current snowpack doesn’t allow for skiing, it is primed for snowmaking. The divots and depressions are filled in, the ground is getting cold, and the travel routes are established. As soon as temps get low enough, our crews will be firing up the snow guns to help prep the slopes so we can all get us back out there!
