December 18th - The ski hill is now open daily following regular season hours. We welcome in some what of a warm up this week with highs in to the 20's and 30's but lows at night in the teens. We will continue to make snow at all opportunities and are striving to open terrain as quickly as we can. The new high speed rope tow is slated to open towards the end of the week as well as the snow tubing hill.
Stay tuned for additional updates as the week moves forward.
December 17th @ 6:30pm - Please note that due to intense wind chill factors and temperatures: Sunday operations will be adjusted to 12pm-6pm. We will feature a $29 lift ticket.
December 14th @ 7:30am - Spirit Mountain will begin daily operations for skiing and snowboarding beginning on Friday, 12/16 from 12pm-8pm. Saturday operating hours are 9am-8pm and Sunday 9am-6pm with both days featuring lift tickets at $35. Once we reach Monday, 12/19--we move into our regularly scheduled operating hours and pricing. Please visit our Hours Page for all details.
Beginning Friday, both chalets will open with all amenities, food & beverage entities, rental services and snow sports activities.
We do anticipate over 50% of our terrain to be open by Friday, and plans are to operate at least 2 lifts plus our beginner conveyor. We will update the Snow Report as we move closer to Friday, but thoughts at this point will be to have Powder Monkey, Skyhooker, Bindle Stiff, Sissor Bill, Four Pipe, Log Roller, Downhill Musher, and Prospector Beginner Area. Double Jaw will open Saturday, and additonal terrain will continue to open as snowaking and grooming continue.
As far as terrain park activites, plans are to keep the sweet set up on Powder Monkey with a few tweaks. We hope to have some additional features and elements in place on a few other locations throughout the slopes as well once we roll into next week. Our original plan was for the NEW High Speed Rope Tow to roll this weekend, but unfortunately due to unforeseen circumstances, the rope tow area will be delayed. Thoughts at this point are to have the rope tow and tow park rolling by late next week. A bit of a bummer, but we are stoked and you will be too, once all is ready and rolling! Please stay tuned, and we'll bring all together accordingly in the very near future!
The cold temps have provided for great snowmaking opportunities, and we will keep cranking out the snow at any & all times possible to open additional skiable terrain as quickly as possible in the many days ahead. When you do come across a snowmaker, please take the time to give them HUGE thank you for making it happen!
Thank you for your patronage to Spirit Mountain, and we're quite excited to get this 2016/17 Season in full swing!
Happy Turns, and Think Snow!
Plus, natural snow is in the forecast starting a bit later on Friday....maybe 2"-4" by Saturday morning!!
Daily Operations to begin on Friday, 12/16 from 12pm-8pm. Regular hours to commence from that point forward. Details on Hours.
Snow Tubing hill is not open at this time.
December 12th - Many, many thanks to everyone that came out to enjoy Opening Weekend for the 2016/2017 season. Good Times were had by all and the natural snow on Sunday was icing on the cake. We certainly appreciate the many compliments, and very stoked that to get our first weekend of operations up and running. I am sure there were more than a few kids that had hard getting up for school this morning, and probably some adults, too! Currently, operations are suspended for the week. Our plan is to re-open for daily operations beginning on Friday, December 16th beginning at 12pm. However, we will provide confirmed hours of operation for Friday and beyond as we move through the week. At this time, the snowmakers are going to take full advantage of the cold temps and make as much snow as possible....if all holds with the weather and our efforts, we anticipate opening a number of additional slopes by the coming weekend! Let It SNOW, and thank your SNOWMAKERS!!
Season Pass Pick Up this week is at our main/upper chalet, Skyline, from 9am-4pm, Monday-Thursday.
Have a good week and we'll see you back on the slopes soon!
