Skiing & Snowboarding (Noon-9pm)
Snow Tubing (Closed)
DAILY SKIING CONDITIONS: Machine groomed, granular at Opening. My mid-afternoon, loose, wet granular.
NOTES: It's already a beatuiful bluebird day! We are OPEN with skiing and snowboarding!
WEEKEND UPDATE: You know what we say to 50 degree days? Bring it on! We have plenty of snow to handle a few warm days. What will the conditions be like this weekend? Fun! You can expect the snow to be softer, and a little more wet (not the dry fluffy stuff we had last week, but also not puddles of water). 50 degree days are perftect for sunglasses, sunscreen, and maybe even a t-shirt. Bring with you extra socks and gloves and we will see you on the slopes!

|A General Rule for Snow Tubing: Fresh, natural snow makes the tube-runs slower, not faster. Very cold weather generally means faster runs. A medium temp day with the sun out may also make for faster runs as the top layer of snow may melt just a little and increase the speed. It is always a good idea to walk down and check things out for yourself before you purchase your ticket.|

**Surface conditions listed are at opening time and are subject to change due to weather, time of day, skier traffic and other factors. Always watch your fellow skiers and snowboarders along with other obstructions, both natural and man-made. Ice, thin spots, bare spots and variations on the snow surface can and will exist.

***Snowmaking is possible at any time and should be anticipated regardless if the Snow Report states it or not. While specific trails may be noted for possible snowmaking, that DOES NOT exempt any other trail from snowmaking. In order for us to provide our customers with skiing, snowboarding, and snow tubing services, we have to make snow when we can. We know conditions are unfavorable during snowmaking; HOWEVER, Midwest weather does not always provide good snowmaking conditions and we must seize all opportunities when we have them.
