Weekly Snow Report | Dec. 19, 2018

Posted On: Dec 19, 2018

Forecasts are calling for mostly sunny skies this weekend with temps in the mid-to-upper 50s during the day and upper 20s at night, so bring a light jacket for day riding, and bundle up in the evening for Night Sessions*, Dec. 21-23 and Dec. 25 – Jan. 5. There’s a chance we may see some snow flurries late Monday evening, which could make for our first white Christmas in a while.

This week come enjoy access to 31 trails and 10 lifts (plus 7 moving carpets available for Sports School and the Grizzly Ridge Tube Park).

What's new in the park? Last week we opened up 59+ features across both resorts. This week, our Park Staff has added 4 new features to Amusement Park (beginner boxes, rails, and tubes). They also changed the features on Park Run, leading into the quarter pipe with some new combos for the intermediate and advanced enjoyment.
