4:22 pm 04/24/14--
Cool temperatures overnight will transition to a warmer, sunnier Friday; perfect weather to take advantage of terrific spring conditions at The Beast. We're pulling out all the stops for Friday, grooming 27 trails and spinning 3 of your favorite lifts - the Canyon Quad, K-1 Express Gondola, and the Superstar Express.

We'll kick things off at 9:00 a.m. with crisp corduroy on those 27 groomed trails, including East Fall, Cascade, Superstar, Bittersweet, and Great Northern. As the sun comes out and the day warms, Patrol will be assessing conditions and we may see the ropes fall on naturally bumped trails like Upper Skyehawk, and Downdraft.

Only intermediate and advanced skiing and riding are available at this time and late season spring conditions exist. Walking may be required on some routes, please ski and ride responsibly.

The Superstar Express Quad is scheduled to operate from 9:00-5:00; The K-1 Express Gondola and Canyon Quad are scheduled from 9:00-400.
