We will be open tomorrow and Sunday for a fun-in-the-sun weekend of spring skiing!  Tickets are just $29 for ages 13+ and $15 for ages 7-12- and frequent skier card discounts apply to those reduced rates!  We'll be enjoying rockin' tunes from the Willie Playmore Band on Saturday from 1-4pm, and our Pond Skimming Contest is Sunday at 11am.  It has been an active week of weather and Mother Nature is keeping a very wintery grip on our summit.  So we'll start with the Northwoods Gondola and Topridge Triple for Saturday morning, and add the Straight Brook Quad to the mix if and as weather allows later in the day or Sunday.  We have been grooming the summit terrain extensively throughout the week and just need a few extra degrees in the air to get the lift on the move- we are working on it! 

Special Notes

Pick up and use your 18/19 season pass this weekend- our new free and convenient financing plan breaks your purchase into four easy payments.  Stop by the Food Court, Saddle Lodge, or Open Pit Grille for some hearty keep-you-skiing fare- $9 sundeck lunch specials include a chicken teriyaki sandwich, or a trio of grilled beef & veggie kabobs.  Be sure to head to the Tannery (or the sundeck!) for apres-ski fun!  Quick Reminder: Spring conditions can mean some areas of thin cover and bare spots; as always have fun while skiing with care.  Thank you, readers of Adirondack Life, for voting us Best Ski Area!  Also a special shout-out to our dining partners Cafe Sarah & barVino for their accolades.
