Is it…could it be…more snow this week?? We could get 1-3” just tonight! That’s perfect for us, because we plan to open Westridge and Zzyzx tomorrow along with Chair 3. We’re prepping features, grooming and making the snow perfect for the first Westridge riders of the season. Have your chains ready – we don’t want anyone to miss out on the fresh snow and new runs. Snowmaking has expanded to Sundown Cruiser, the Log Chute and Ego Trip. This means more beginner and advanced terrain is coming. Enough for every skill level in your group! We’re open until 4pm today, so come on by during your lunch break for an afternoon hot cocoa at the Summit Inn or an after work drink at the Slopeside.
