Welcome to a rockin' MLK weekend!  We've got gorgeous conditions and beautiful coverage, and of course we are gearing up for another dump of natural snow starting up late this afternoon.  Our talented grooming staff has skillfully blended Thursday's 5" accumulation into a carpet of crisp corduroy to get your weekend started in style with vast amounts of terrain to explore!  Several of your favorite summit steeps are back in action today- snowmakers wrapped up overnight on Lies, Chatiemac, and Headwaters- you can check out the newest snow there mid-morning.  During the day, snowmakers will be powering away on Lower Sleighride, Wild Air, Pot Luck, The Arena, and Ski Bowl terrain.  Make sure to hit up Burnt Ridge Mountain on today's adventure- the North Side and High Peaks are open too!

These first-timer multi-day programs can be redeemed throughout the 2019-20 snow season on non-consecutive days.  Complete our 3-day program and your card will get you frequent skier ticket discounts for the rest of the season (please note this card does not include the first or sixth day free).  Single and multi-day programs are available daily and may be purchased in person at the Snow Sports Desk, upper level of the Northwoods Lodge.  Reservations are not necessary, check back to buy these programs online in advance. 

Lessons meet on snow at 9:45am or 1:15pm (additional 10:45am option Saturday, Sunday, and daily during holiday periods).  Choose from the packages above or reserve a Private Lesson for customized one-on-one coaching!  Learn more about how to plan for your first day out.

*In the case of only one participant in a PFS/LTS class lesson, the lesson time will be 1 hour as learning and practice time goes much quicker with one-on-one instruction.

Note that all lesson programs require participants (ages 17 & under) to be wearing a helmet. If you purchase your program with rentals, a helmet is included in the package. If children are using their own equipment, they must bring their helmet or plan to rent one upon arrival. Thank you for your cooperation toward our effort of increasing safety on the slopes.
