What an amazing season in Colorado this year!



We are open June 21-23 and 28-30. Lift hours are 8:30 a.m. – 2:30 p.m.


With a base-area elevation of 10,780 feet, we have the longest season in Colorado. Park for free, walk to the base area, hop on a lift and start skiing from top to bottom; it’s that simple.

Spring conditions exist and conditions will change throughout the day. There is only one run from mid-mountain to the base. The best snow conditions are on the upper mountain where several runs are available. Ski and ride with care.
