When is Opening Day for the 2018/19 Season?
Sat, Dec 1 - Sat, Dec 15
Opening Day is always the hardest to pinpoint. Weather 100% dictates when we can open for the season. We do not rely on natural snow, but rather on below freezing temperatures. Once we do open, however, we can stay open with snow on the ground even if the temperatures reach above freezing (40's, 50's, 60's, 70's etc). The best time to make snow is when the temperatures are in the low 20's or teens. Yes, we can make snow at 30 degrees, but the quality isn't as good. And Don't forget, humidity, water temperate, and ground temperature all play a part too.
When it comes to the start of the season, deciding on the best time to make snow is tough. We can usually start making snow around the 1st of December, but we need cooperation from good 'ole Mother Nature. We do our best to get the snow on the ground in plenty in time for our projected opening day, but we can only do what She allows. Rest assured that we want to be open as much as you do!
Once we do know opening day, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and our Website will be updated. Usually it is around the 15th of December.
Always check the Snow Report before coming out to Snow Creek for updates on snow and tubing conditions.
Think COLD! Think SNOW!
