We had an incredible Opening Weekend with ideal early season conditions.  Woots, hollers, and high fives were in the air as skiers and riders returned for the season!  The weather was perfect, beginners practiced their turns in the sun on Bear Cub, and freestylers got their kicks on Pot Luck's early-season park.  To gear up for Friday's reopening- snowmakers will continue to make snow on Ruby Run, Topridge, Sunway, Quicksilver and 3B.  If weather permits snowmakers may move up to Cloud, Headwaters and Tannery- we appreciate their hard work in getting the season underway.  Check back for early season rates and terrain for when we start spinning the lifts again for Friday's reopening.
