Open and Rocking December 20

The recent snow has set us up nicely for skiing.  We currently have 104 km open.  The lads have been out in force grooming and getting the trails going for skiing.  I’ve been skiing the past few days and it’s been the berries!  The snow is still powdery.  We do have some weather coming in over the next few days but the skiing should continue to be good.  The crew will work their magic.  Check out the conditions page for updated conditions.

Our updated 2014 trail map is at the printer and will be here soon.  Get a sneak preview.  We've also updated our snowshoe maps -- Side 1 Side 2

Our ski school is fired up and I’m proud to report that they’ve added some new skiers to the sport.

If you’ve signed up for a season pass and haven’t had your new pass made yet, now’s the time.  Stop in and the front desk staff will take a photo of you and make up your pass.  If you haven't signed up yet but want to click here.
The logging operation in Prospect Farm has finally ended.  As soon as we can get back up there, we will be opening up the trails that have been closed due to the cutting. 
We put the new bridge in over the Wildcat River.  However, we have found a better site for the bridge just upstream of the old river crossing.  It will be less weather dependent and provide a wonderful ski connection between the Woodchuck and Wildcat fields.
The opening of the Waffle Hut on the Ellis River Trail has been delayed due to bureaucratic paperwork and will be open asap.  I’ll let you know.

Drive safely on your way,
