9:34 am 04/18/15--Mostly sunny skies with, perhaps, an April shower or two, will make for perfect weather to ski, ride, and dance the afternoon away at the Dazed and Defrosted Music Festival.

Superb skiing and riding conditions have prompted the reopening of Bear Mountain and the Needles Eye Lifts for this weekend. A total of seven lifts are scheduled today from 8:00 a.m.-5:00 p.m. serving more than 100 open trails. Soft spring bumps abound and can be found across the resort on trails like Outer Limits, Double Dipper, and Highline. Look for 49 freshly groomed trails as well, including Superstar, Cascade, East Fall, and Lower Wildfire.

Please note that with the closing of Snowshed and Ramshead areas we no longer have a continuous novice route from our peaks. All services are available at the K-1 Base Lodge and food and drinks are available daily at the Peak Lodge. Group Lessons have ended for the season but private lessons can be purchased at K-1 guest services through April 19. Be aware of spring conditions and thin cover; ski or ride with care.

Lift Tickets must be purchased at K-1 Base Area. No Ticket sales are available at Bear Mountain.

As a spring bonus, the Needles Eye Express, Bear Mountain Quad, and Skye Peak Express will operate for an extra weekend, April 18-19. Parking, shuttle service, and restrooms will be available at Bear Mountain on those days, but no services will be available in the lodge. Additionally, operation of the K-1 Express Gondola has been extended through April 26 to take advantage of ample snow remaining on the Upper Mountain. The Peak Lodge will operate through April 26 as well. The Following key lifts will turn until 5:00 p.m. on Saturday, April 18, weather permitting, so you can enjoy the late afternoon sunshine: Canyon Quad, K-1 Express, Snowdon Quad, Superstar Express, Needles Eye Express, Bear Mountain Quad, Skye Peak Express.
