Well, since we last checked in, our snowmaking team has been working hard around the clock to lay down a nice blanket of snow. They’ve been very busy, which is a good thing! Opening day is next Friday, November 24. As of now, it looks like we will have 6 trails open to start out with, and should be able to open more terrain in no time. Since nobody can truly predict the weather (although many of us seem to pretend), it’s impossible to guarantee anything, but there’s a pretty good chance this is what opening day will look like: First, use your new RFID lift ticket to head through the gate at the bottom of the Sterling Lift. After countless high-fives, load the chair and let out a great big hoot. Enjoy the sights and sounds on your trip up to the top, and take a moment to reminisce about last year’s snowy glory. Unload at the top and do a warmup on Upper Rumrunner, Crossover, Treasure Run, and Lower Exhibition. Then, do it again and if you’re ready, take a left this time and drop into Smugglers’ Alley. SSU will be available offering private lessons for intermediate and expert skiers and riders.
We hope to have beginner terrain open on Sir Henry’s for opening day. In the event that Sir Henry’s is open, SSU will also be providing lessons for beginners! Again, these are the trails we hope to have open for next Friday, and our crews will be doing everything they can to make it happen. We strongly encourage anyone who hasn’t yet picked up their pass, to pop in any day but Thanksgiving from 8:00 am – 4:00 pm. The staff at Ski and Ride will be happy to work with you so all you have to do on opening day is head straight to the lift!
