Opening Day Moved Up – It’s Friday, December 16!

Due to the recent cold snap and hard work by our snowmakers, we plan to open for skiing and riding a day earlier than anticipated!

Opening Day will be Friday, December 16, 9 am-9 pm.

So far, over twenty million gallons of water have been converted to snow. We expect to have the following trails open:

  • Potato Patch
  • Upper and Lower Dobie and a portion of the Terrain Park
  • Upper and Lower Cross Trails
  • Eagle's Swoop
  • Plus, the possibility of Upper Tyro, Tequila and Sunrise!

Starting December 16, our Regular Season Lift Hours of Operation will be in effect:

  • Mondays: 9 am-5 pm
  • Tuesday-Sunday: 9 am-9 pm

Rentals, Lessons, Treehouse

Rentals, Lessons and Treehouse Kids Ski Programs will all be open starting December 16 as well.

Demo Days This Weekend

Come test this season's newest gear! Freestyle will be in the Discovery Ridge parking lot Saturday, December 17, 9 am-2 pm. No charge to demo, but valid lift ticket required, plus driver's license and credit card.

The Highlands

An excellent chilly forecast means that we expect to have The Highlands open for the Christmas Holiday. In fact, most of our trails should be open the week of Christmas.


We expect to open The Plunge tubing park on December 23.

Ice Skating

We expect to open Ice Skating on December 17.

Ridgely's Fun Park

We expect to open Ridgely's Fun Park on December 26, and will operate weekends and holidays throughout the season.
