Operations Update for Saturday, 2/24 and Sunday, 2/25

2/24 Saturday Update: We called in extra resources this week to insure we had a poma running to the top. While it spun today, we only had a handful of skiers. We have decided to open tomorrow for only self-service kiosk customers tomorrow. Skinners, snowshoers, hikers have fun. We have only 2 reservations for lift tickets tomorrow so can't justify cost of lift operations. We will refund those reservations.
Stay tuned as snow coverage is still good and if we get sufficient reservations for next weekend, lifts will spin again. Pray for snow, a typical March dump will make all the difference. Keep the faith and we hope to see you back on the slopes soon.


2/23 Friday Update: This weekend we'll be spinning the T-bar and Poma 1. We received about a 1/2 inch of wet snow last night. We'll have 13 trails open plus backcountry.


We'll kick off this update with some pictures of happy Hickory sledders! Our sledding hill has been a huge hit! Come check it out. A $2 per sled fee is payable at the Mountain Access Kiosk near the parking area. A signed waiver is also required.
You can download the waiver and bring it with you. 



Our snow is holding up well, and we could see a few more inches tonight. If you come out to snowshoe or skin on Friday, you can expect spring conditions and highs in the 40s, but it will be cooling off by Saturday. This weekend, we'll be skiing from 10 am - to 4 pm on Saturday and Sunday, with Season Ticket holders and Indy Pass holders getting first tracks from 9:00 am to 10 am.



UPDATED 2/24: Lifts will not be running on Sunday
