Trails are a bit icy, as the ground hardened overnight. As the week has progressed, our lower trails have had less coverage; Lake, Catfish, and Backway were hit hard by the sun and warm temps. Pitchpine, Laurel, Blue Moon, and the Fern Loops are in good shape; we expect Sassafras and SuperLoop to be in similar condition. Temps are forecasted … Read More

Trails have hardened overnight with the temperature drop, and they are quite icy. Due to the sun and warm temperature yesterday, we lost a bit of coverage on our lower trails, mainly the Lake Trail and Catfish.

We will be open tomorrow–trails are expected to be somewhat soft like this afternoon due to warm temperatures. We are excited … Read More
Updated conditions: trails are a bit icy this morning–they are expected to soften up this afternoon with the sun. Superloop, Zinger, Lower Zinger, Wazoo, Whipple Mill, and Bear Creek have been packed down.

Temperatures are forecasted to rise this afternoon, potentially making for soft/slow snow conditions. However, we are excited for another day of skiing! Please check in at our Office upon arrival.
