Thanks For a Great Winter! Slopes Will Remain Closed.

The mountain saw some snow overnight, but it is not enough for us to reopen the slopes. Thanks to everyone who came out this winter. We had a ton of fun skiing, riding and tubing. Mother Nature sure threw us some curveballs, but that didn’t stop this from being a great year, full of happy memories of time spent on the snow with family and friends (both old and new!). In the end, love and fun conquers all!

Come see us in the spring, summer and fall for more fun and mountain memories! We’ve got Easter coming up, Devils Knob, Virginia’s Highest Golf Course will open, and before we know it, summer will be here! Blues, Brews & BBQ on Memorial Day Weekend, July 4th Jubilee with FIREWORKS, Nike Tennis and Golf Camps, fun at Lake Monocan, thrills at Discovery Ridge, and so much more.

See you on the mountain soon!

Snowfarming & Limited Snowmaking

Cold temps have allowed us to extend the season, and we will keep working to continue the season as long as possible. Thanks to talented and hardworking snowfarmers, we regained Upper Wild Turkey last weekend, and continue to keep it open. The slope surface is improving daily and people of all ages are having lots of fun. We've got limited snowmaking (fan guns only) running round the clock through Sunday afternoon. Mother Nature has been cooperating with cold temps, and she may even bring us the gift of some snow on Sunday. Forecasts are constantly changing about snow predictions, so THINK COLD and do your snow dances!

March is Crazy!

Two weeks ago, who would have thought we’d still be open AND making snow. Some people thought we were CRAZY, but we never gave up, and now we’re having crazy fun!

So many people came out all last week and we saw lots of smiles and laughter. That's what keeps us going, and why we fight - to share that fun with all of you! We will continue to fight and extend the season as long as possible.

Snowfarming

We’re holding onto our core slopes which are in good shape and getting better. Every day that we get deeper into March, the better conditions get. We've been running limited snowmaking since Friday, which has greatly enhanced the surface. And our Snowfarmers are proving themselves to be real heroes again. With their expertise and the use of a new winch cat, they were able to reopen Upper Wild Turkey. Talk about crazy!

What’s up for this week? Temps are cold and we’re open 9 am-3 pm Monday-Thursday and 9 am-5 pm next Friday-Sunday. Stay tuned for what happens after March 11. We have a good chance to make it longer!

Cold Temps Return Tomorrow!

Welcome March! February was full of battles with Mother Nature, but we didn't give up. We kept fighting, and now the cold temps are coming back. March never looked so good!

We're open for skiing and riding today, 9 am-3 pm, AND snowmaking temps return tomorrow, maybe as early as tomorrow morning!

Our Snowmaking Team is ready and waiting. The plan is to maintain our current slopes and enhance the experience. Nighttime temps look good for snowmaking for the foreseeable future.

New Snowfarming Tool

Plus the snowfarming tool has arrived and is being put to good use! We've gotten a Prinoth Winch Cat as a demo machine. One of the challenges of snowfarming is that every day, skiers and riders push snow down the mountain. A winch cat is a really efficient way to pull large amounts of snow back up the mountain. We can get to pockets of snow that have been pushed down the slope and pull the snow back up into more usable areas. The Prinoth Winch Cat has a pulling force of 4.5 tons!

We've already used the winch cat to widen Upper Eagles Swoop, Upper Cliffhanger, and to pull some snow from Lower Dobie up to Upper Dobie.

Slopes will continue to operate daily with the following schedule/rates:

  • Mondays-Thursdays:  9 am-3 pm 
    6-hour Lift Ticket (All Ages): $39 
    4-hour Lift Ticket (All Ages): $29
