8:06 am 04/19/14--Cool nights, sunny days, ample terrain, and lots of lifts are the recipe for super spring skiing and riding. That's exactly what The Beast is cooking up for you this Easter Weekend. Oh, and spring wouldn't be complete without that inevitable annual rite: Pond Skimming.

Arrive at 8:00 for crisp corduroy cruising and stay until 5:00 for soft spring corn and bumps. 6 lifts are scheduled for Saturday, providing access to 65 open trails and more than 300 acres of terrain - a whole lot of Easter weekend skiing and riding. 52 trails for all ability levels will be groomed, including our top-to-bottom easier routes Great Northern and Snowshed Slope. A generous selection of intermediate and expert terrain will also be groomed so black-diamond fans will want to check out fresh corduroy on Double Dipper and the fun terrain left over from the former terrain park on Lower Dream Maker. Mogul aficionados will find seeded bumps on Mouse Trap. More details on Easter weekend operations can be found on the Insider Blog.

Beginner terrain is available from the K-1 Express Gondola on Great Northern and from the Snowshed Express Quad on Snowshed Slope, Highlander, and the Learn-to-Ski-and-Ride-Area. There is no other top-to-bottom beginner terrain at this time.
