We regret to inform you that Sunday 5/3 was our last day of operations for the 2014/2015 season. After a handful of 70F+ and sunny days, the mountain is quickly deteriorating. As a side note the weather doesn’t look to be on our side either.

We would like the thank everyone who enjoyed skiing/riding with us this season, from the first time visitors, to the long time season pass holders. We had an incredible year with 373” of snow, giving us the most in the lower 48. We hope to see you again next year for another powder filled season. 

2015/2016 Season Passes are now on sale. Click HERE to check out our Pass options; purchase by May 11th and save some coin.

In case you're driving up here for the first time and plan on using a GPS, be sure to read this.

Splicing Cables With Bonnie

By Andrew, on Wed, Nov 27, 2013

View/Hide Photos

It's no secret that nothing lasts forever (except the Grateful Dead's legacy), and time wears away even the most well-built structures. The key to consitent quality with any equipment requires continued service and care. While providing patrons with uphill access, the constant weight and perpetual rotations cause our chairlift cables to slowly stretch over time.  Fixed grip chairlifts like our Jet Triple, Taxi Quad and Bonaventure Chair can run for several decades without requiring any cable splicing, core replacement and tightening. Our cable service providers, Dale R. Walters' Mountain Wire Rope Service specialize in wire rope splicing, repairs and inspections. Certified throughout the U.S., Walters, and his son J.T. service about 135 different areas across the East and Midwest. But wire rope techs are a dying breed, in a trade that requires several thousands of miles on the road and many consecutive months away from home, on top of a physically demanding regime exposed to the elements. With the help of our Mountain Ops. crew, Walters' Mountain Rope Service removed a portion of the Bonaventure cable's nylon core and replaced it with a tight, new section that will service our skiers and riders for years to come.
