It's FRIDAAAAAAAAAAY!

The weekend is here - and so is night skiing. Starting this evening, night skiing and snowboarding will follow the regular season hours. Be sure to check them out here before heading to the mountain. The winter storm yesterday did give us 1" of natural snow and snowmaking is set to resume as weather permits. Looks like there is a consistent cold snap coming which will allow our Snowmaking and Grooming Teams to make the magic. #thankasnowmaker #highfiveagroomer

If you can't make it to the mountain this weekend, book one of our special lodging packages, try your smarts at the new Wisp Escape Game, or book a tubing adventure for later this winter. Shop our store today!
