Trail Report

Trails are now closed for the season. Warm weather and sunshine beginning of the week has melted out  the snow. We had an incredible last week of spring skiing, skiing until April 22nd and logging the last grooming on April 20th. Great seeing everyone out the end of the season to enjoy the special end of year conditions. Thanks everyone that helped make it a memorable season! Check back for updates and spring photos as we transition to spring and summer!

We hope to open the mountain bike trails May 4th weekend.  Click on the bike trail report for latest update and photos.

 Total snowfall this season at 67″.
