We look forward to welcoming guests to the resort for a fun season.” Five slopes are planned to open Saturday including Squirrel Cage, Wisp Trail, Grouse Way, Sunset Boulevard, and Central Park Terrain Park. Multiple chairlifts and conveyor carpets will access the terrain for skiers and snowboarders of all ability levels.
