Uphill Access

Uphill Access will not be open when we open Sunday.

There is a very detailed section on Uphill Access on the "Runs Open" page of our website.  We do require people to obtain a Free Uphill Access pass in the Season Pass office.  The website outlines rules and guidelines regarding Uphill Access.

There are times we close uphill access usually for safety reasons, avalanche control, snowmaking, special events/racing, etc.  Very early season is one of those times.  For the small amount of terrain open, there is a great deal of snowmaking equipment and grooming going on.  After we are open to the Summit and a lot of snowmaking equipment has been moved from the main runs, we will open Uphill Access.

Personally, I am a big fan of an after work skin to the top.  I look forward to getting Uphill Access open.

By uphill access, I am referring to people snowshoeing and cross country skiing uphill. Right now, we are not allowing it, but will in a few weeks.
