Snow in the am

**9:30 Update**
We’ve received 2-4” of snow this morning so far at the base of the tram, it’s coming down hard and piling up quick.

It’s time to put the leftovers down and get off the couch because we are open for skiing and riding. While you enjoyed turkey dinner with family/friends, our Snowmaking team was hard at work laying down snow on Goat Run in preparation for the opening tomorrow (11/29). Mother Nature chipped in as well coating the entire mountain with over a foot of fresh snow in the last 48 hours, making for excellent early season conditions. Today, 7 trails will be open, accessed by 4 lifts with plans for more, come Saturday.


Today marks the kick-off for seven-day operations. We have seven trails slated to open, serviced by four lifts scheduled to spin. First chair for Lower Mountain (Metro & Taxi Quads, along with Stateside Moving Carpet) is planned for 8:30a, with the Jet Triple slated to follow at 9:00a. As always, last chair for all lifts is at 4:00p. Rumors from the Operation team is the Green Mountain Flyer will be open Saturday for 8:30a, but it could be later. Be sure to check back tomorrow for updates.

PLEASE NOTE: Queen's Highway is open from the Metro quad via Perry Merril, but we are not connected just yet. You cannot get to the Queen's from the top of the Taxi. We hope to be connected by the weekend. Stay tuned.


Lift tickets are priced at $49 for adults (ages 19+) and $39 for juniors (ages 6-18).


Join us and NEKCA Food Shelf in assisting those in need.  Bring a bag of canned goods (bag is considered 3 or more items) to Stateside Ticket Booth on Saturday, 11/29 and you'll receive a complimentary pass to the Pump House Indoor Waterpark.

11-25-2014:

Several feet of pre-Thanksgiving snowfall last season is tough to beat, but we are having a white one again in 2014. Our Wednesday Travel day Nor'easter hits hardest on Highways to our south, but what we have going for us is elevation and drier snow, just what we need after the soggy Monday. Snow guns are coming back on for the foreseeable future, at least though Saturday anyway. Snow is expected to fall from the clouds beginning about 2pm Wednesday through sunrise Thanksgiving morning. Let's call it 1/4 to 1/2 inch per hour, times 18 hours, that's about 6.75 inches of Powder for Turkey Day turns. After that we have intermittent 'Jay Cloud' snow right through the weekend. That likely adds up to more than an additional 6.75". Yes, that's right, we are forecasting 12"+ of snow through this weekend. What a way to burn off all those stuffing and apple pie calories.

It's great to be back, Happy Thanksgiving! Tim
