We are excited to welcome back winter temperatures overnight Saturday, and groomers will be very busy on all mountain peaks!  Sunday's forecast notes more blustery weather; should winds delay any lifts, we will note that on this trail report as updates occur.  Be sure to look for the trail count rebounding over the coming days!  Relax apres-ski in the Tannery- live music begins at 1pm, or enjoy our full service menu available at 11am.  March 4-5 is an I Love NY Bonus Weekend- pair your 3-day lift ticket starting Friday or Saturday with 3 nights of lodging from $198 per person!   Be aware of recent weather changes, as always have fun while skiing with care. 

Special Notes

Please note that Echo & Crystal are open for racing only- good luck to all athletes in their U19 State Championships!  Sunday's food court lunch special is a chicken sandwich topped with provolone and bacon for $9, or grab a treat from our new waffle window at the Open Pit Grille!  On Monday and Tuesday, we are honored to be welcome New York's best nordic racers to the NYSPHSAA Nordic Championships at the North Creek Ski Bowl!  Safety reminder on the slopes:  All green circle trails are also slow zones.  Please reduce your speed and give beginners plenty of room to learn in these areas.
