FRESH SNOW ALERT! The first snowfall of the 19/20 winter season brought us 6" of new snow. Forecasts are calling for the flakes to keep falling throughout the day before tapering off tomorrow (Friday, Nov. 22). With partly cloudy, cool and breezy conditions expected through the weekend, conditions should be prime for snowmaking as we prep for another potential storm system before next week's Thanksgiving holiday. Now is time to get ready for Opening Day with a season pass. Get yours before Dec. 22 and save up to $100. BUY ONLINE.
