FROM THE TOP :: HOLIDAY HIGHLIGHTS

What a difference a year makes. Since opening day on October 25, 2016, we have received 62 inches of snow, compared to a whopping 7 inches in the same period last season. But, more importantly, we have had cold temperatures which have allowed our snowmakers to expand open terrain on a daily basis.
