Deep thoughts by Riley*:

THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU!

What a season! 

Yes, in spite of the fact that we reported one of the deepest summit base depths in our history (if not the deepest) at 164 inches, we are CLOSED for the season. 

I have a few parting deep thoughts:

  • 410 inches of snowfall! That's the second best in 21 years of data I have available in my office (back in 2007/08 we hit 426").
  • Back-to-back 400+ inch seasons! That may be the only time in our history we've done that!
  • Best base depth ever? Maybe! At 164 inches it's the deepest in at last 21 years.
  • 80 days of snowfall out of 123 days total, it snowed 65% of the days this season!
  • 22 days it snowed 6" or more.
  • 9 days it snowed 10" or more.

We're very grateful that Mother Nature brought us fantastic conditions this season. We think that it may be part of the reason we had more skier visits than ever before! "Skier visits" refers to how may people came each day and this year more of you skied more than before! Many of you were new, many of you were part of our loyal out-of-town returning guests, and a bunch of you are devoted Season Passholders. While we love you all, I think we have the best Season Passholders on the planet! You (well, we because our employees helped with this) skied a collective 2,098,833,477 feet of vertical this season which is a new record. THANK YOU!

While it's too soon to forecast the weather for next season, it's a given our passholders are the greatest community of skiers and snowboarders and 2018/19 Winter Season Passes are on sale now through September 30, 2019.

We are planning to open for summer on May 26 for weekends and then daily starting June 16. If you had a 2017/18 Winter Season Pass you receive lots of perks in the summer so we hope to see you back on the mountain!

If you are still needing your winter fix you can come skin up the mountain, it is your responsibility to know, understand and follow our UPHILL POLICY

Again we thank you for being you and making this season so amazing. See you this summer!

Treewell Safety

Skiing and snowboarding off the groomed runs and in deep powder snow is one of the most exciting and appealing parts of our sport. If you decide to leave the groomed trails, you are voluntarily accepting the risk of falling into tree wells or deep snow and suffocating.

A deep snow or tree well accident occurs when a rider or skier falls into an area of deep unconsolidated snow and becomes immobilized. The more the person struggles, the more entrapped in the snow they become. Deaths resulting from these kinds of accidents are referred to as a NARSID or Non-Avalanche Related Snow Immersion Death. Fortunately, these types of accidents are preventable.

WHAT YOU CAN DO TO PREVENT TREE WELL & DEEP SNOW ACCIDENTS


1. Avoid Deep Snow & Tree Areas
2. Always Ski with a Partner and Keep Your Partner in Sight
3. Ski & Ride in Control and Defensively
4. Have a Plan to Survive
