Snow Trails 55th Season Opening Day
Snow Trails will open Slopes from 9AM-9:30PM Sunday, January 3rd, 2016 for the 55th winter season. We will be open this week with limited daytime hours listed below. Beginning Friday, January 8th Snow Trails will begin Normal Hours on the Slopes. The Tubing Park will be unavailable at this time, with continued snowmaking to allow twice the amount of snow to be made in-order to construct the Park.
Snow Trails Snow Report will list Chairlift, Slope, and Terrain Park availability each day. Terrain Park features will be built in The Woods Terrain Park, ready for Opening Day. Snowmaking will continue as temperatures allow, possibly during operating hours, making it possible for additional terrain to become available quickly and for the base of snow to be built-up to sustain throughout the season.
First, second, and third shift crews will go to work on the stockpiles of snow, reshaping and grooming the slopes with Snow Trails fleet of Pisten Bully Snow Cats, including the latest addition of a new PB400.
Snow Sports Private Lessons for all ages will be available, as well as Group Lessons for those 9yrs. old and up. Beginning Friday, January 8th Children's Polar Programs will be available and taking Reservations 7 days a week.
