Snow Reporter's Comments

Winter is here! With favorable cold temperatures, our Snowmageddon Team has been hard at work making winter happen.  These cold temperatures has allowed us to open an entire week earlier then planned, making it one of the earliest openings in our history and it’s all made possible thanks to all the snowmaking upgrades we have had over the last few years and the hard work of our snowmaking team.


We are open with top to bottom skiing and riding on 6 trails (novice terrain) and 2 lifts spinning today from 9am-4pm.  The weather looks to be partly sunny, with highs in the upper 40's making it a great day to get out there and make some turns.  Swing by Legends Grill for some lunch, and then stop in Zip's Pub for apres, both serving through the weekend.


After this weekend, we will close midweek to maximize snowmaking.  We will reopen for Thanksgiving Weekend on November 28, 29 and 30 for skiing and tubing and the Mountain Adventure Park.  Look for additional open terrain as we could open up to 22 more acres of skiable terrain including South Slope, Schneider and Artist Falls.  


Lift ticket rates for this weekend are $29 for adults and $19 for teens and juniors.  As always, children 5 and under ski for free.  Lifts will run from 9am-4pm.  Ski and snowboard Rentals will be available. 


Join us Saturday, November 29th, In Zip's Pub and Grille from 3pm-5pm for our annual Homecoming event!  This year's Homecoming includes live music in Zip's Pub from local musician, Ryan St. Onge, a brew fest with sampling from Longtrail, Shed, Shocktop, Tuckermans, Seadog, Gansette, Sam Adams and Angry Orchard, Moat and Blue Moon, a trail sign auction, and a premier of Warren Miller's latest film, No Turning Back at 6:15pm.  Tickets for the film are $10 and will be available at the door or online here

November 22 Update

Saturday, November 22


Today we opened for skiing and riding which marked the start of our 77th season of operation.  November 22 is one of the earliest dates we have opened in our history thanks to aggressive snowmaking this last week.  We opened 6 trails and 20 acres of skiing after approximately 4 to 5 productive days of snowmaking.  In addition to the trails we have open this weekend, we have stockpiled snow on the South Slope, Schneider Pitch, Beginner Basin and Artist Falls and we hope to add these trails on Friday, November 28.  This will give us about 42 acres of skiing with two top to bottom runs.  Two top to bottom runs for Thanksgiving Weekend is truly a first for us. 


As I write this at 1pm on Saturday, the sun is popping out of the clouds and temps have warmed.  We have shut down snowmaking for now and plan to restart in the middle of this coming week.


If you plan to visit over the Thanksgiving Weekend you will see snowmaking in progress on Upper Hurricane, Middle, the North Slope, the Alley and Upper Beginner’s Luck.


I look forward to seeing everyone soon!
