Saturday, April 10th

Sunny Saturday is back. It's still a bit chilly, but the sun will be out and it'll be a warm 59 degrees at its warmest. The snow is currently pretty firm, but rest assured it will soften up in due time. Best skate conditions will be through noon. The groomers went out last night and set classic tracks on both sides. There are some changes due to fast melting snow. Hellman's, Sterling's, Pt Mariah, Stagecoach, and Bird's Rest are now closed. Wiesel has low snow near the top and we encourage you to take off your skis and walk. On the Van Norden side, we've lost Tiny Tim, Silverado, and the western parts of Switchback and Bogus, but you can now get up the ridge via late season addition Jacks Jump.

DANGER: Underlying water in the Van Norden meadow. For your safety, please stay on the groomed trails and DO NOT ski on ungroomed trails, crust ski, or otherwise free ski in the meadow. Prince Charming, Bill Patterson North, Bill Patterson West, Snoops Loop, Sheep Pens, and the lower parts of Summit Crossing and International are all closed for the remainder of the season. For any questions about grooming, give us a call or talk to us at the trailheads.

Please remember that this year ALL trail passes need to be purchased at least one day in advance, and rentals/lessons need to be purchased at least TWO days in advance. Tickets, rentals, and lessons can be purchased online. We look forward to seeing you out on the trails!
