    "The Opening Date is always up in the air based on weather and trail conditions, but we are shooting for Friday, May 24. That is the weekend following the long weekend"

    I hopeful for that posted opening date but would be surprised considering how much snow is still on the hill. Spring temps creeping in at a snails pace isn't helping either.
    Can't wait though !!

    Temps are up and the snow is going fast. There is very little snow off of the ski trails but the areas are very wet.
