Update: Snow Ridge opening moved to December 7th due to weather

Local News

Snow Ridge has moved opening weekend to 12/7/18.

Below is a quote from Nick Mir, General Manager:

“After much deliberation, we have had to come to a very difficult decision and will be pushing Opening Day back one week to Friday December 7th. This is not at all how we wanted to start off our season, but after a week of rain, warmth and some poor luck, the snowpack just isn’t going to allow us to get the lifts spinning. After this Sunday, we see a return to cold weather, with snow and snowmaking temps back in the forecast. We’re hopeful that we’ll be able to get back on track this coming week and get everyone up on the hill as soon as possible. We greatly apologize for any inconvenience this has caused and appreciate everyone’s understanding and continued support for Snow Ridge. Check our Facebook page throughout next week for Opening Day updates and information, thank you!”
