If it seems like winter is over it is NOT DONE for season pass holders! We have groomed perhaps half the time this month when overnight lows are sufficiently cold (40F with clear skies; colder with clouds). The past couple of days have been amazing and it looks like tomorrow April 28 we are likely to groom maybe 6k. The weekend forecast is a bit toasty but we are hoping to offer groomed skiing on May 1 for perhaps the first time ever!! Now you can bask in the satisfaction of holding a season pass this season (or wish you had) and buy next year’s season pass, which is good from May 1 to April 30, 2023, to cover your summer trail needs and next season’s skiing. The opportune time to show up varies from 730am to 10am depending on the freeze and the skies. The lodge is closed so no day tickets or rentals. Season passes can be purchased online.
The entry below is for Big Mountain Pass/SR-65.
Grooming has ended after 44 days this season. There is a ton of snow after the scant amounts in the first quarter mile. You will see mud slides above the restroom and below Affleck Park. If you venture beyond the first switchback, be cautious not to get taken out by one on a warm day. A section of road near MM7 (~1/3 mile above the second switchback) was taken out in a slide that hit the bottom of the canyon (summer trail above first switchback) in the late 70’s. This could easily be such a year. Stay safe, have fun and see you next season.

Our last day of grooming will be this Sunday the 23rd. Come on up and close out a terrific nordic season with one last lap on our trails!
Groomed for skate to the first switchback. Classic set to the implement area and looks stellar. Should be “just right” mid-morning. Caution advised at the mild crest several hundred yards from the gate. Otherwise, lots of snow up there. Check out the landslides just below Affleck and enjoy what will likely be the last groom of the season.
