Looks like the weather is going to be perfect for this event today. Registration starts at 11am this morning and the skimming starts at 3pm today. Don't forget, also today is Sunset Saturday. Ramcharger chair lift will be spinning an extra hour today. Get in those last laps of the season!

I'd like to reflect on this season... We couldn't have asked for a better winter this year! From the the consistent snowfall to the awesome lines that were skied, this is a season won't be forgotten. Thanks folks for an awesome season!
