What a great little storm this has turned out to be. There has been fresh snow here since Tuesday morning, and it has been stormy since Sunday night. Wolf Creek is now open 7 days a week and Sipapu and Purgatory open this weekend. More Thanksgiving week openings!
Will not open this season for the second year in a row.
Notes: Opens on Thanksgiving Day on a 20 inch base of natural and artificial snow. The Super Chief Quad will serve Upper Midland, Midland and Lower Midland. Beginning skiers are reached via the Easy Street Double Chair and the Pine Flats Conveyor. We assume Davey Lane, Lower Broadway and Sierra Catwalk will also be open. Snowmaking efforts will continue and additional terrain will be opened as conditions permit.
All facilities are open including La Casa Lodge, La Casa Cafe, Ski Santa Fe Sports Shop, Ski & Snowboard Rental Shop and Baz Coffee Bar. Totemoff’s Bar & Grill will be open for our guests in the middle of the mountain. Join us at Chipmunk Corner Snow Sports School and Children’s Center for ski or snowboard lessons.
