Thank you for using our Advanced Ticketing System. We have been certainly busy but by keeping our advanced tickets to a comfortable level the experience at the resort has been in my opinion great. (But I am biased.) Coming from a company like Peak Resorts and previous roles at East Coast resorts where volume was massive on holiday weekends, the simply busy crowd has been nice to manage. So far this season we have sold out eight days 7 of those being “holiday” dates and then last Saturday, January 9th.

Opening up in the midst of a pandemic has been tricky and we are learning everyday on how to handle our operations. I want to thank everyone for mostly adhering to our requirements. As we’ve said all along expect changes and we’ve been doing our best to stay on top of the way our guests and season pass holders are flowing through our facilities and lifts. It’s been a good test because demand is obviously there as many visited us this weekend!

Snowmaking Continues but here’s what to expect for opening day as of today.
Right now we feel confident with our snowmaking operations that we will have the most open terrain within the state of Wisconsin with multiple top to bottom runs off of two of our main lifts, Comet and Blitzen. With learning center terrain off of our carpet of Blizzard.

Snowmaking has resumed! Our team worked hard to make the most snow we’ve ever made in the month of October and our commitment to one of Wisconsin’s longest ski season is still very much on the table. Piles of snow still remained but as you can imagine 70 degree weather and the rain of November 10th hurt our snowpack enough that we’ll be pushing our planned opening back a few days to November 25th. This will give our snowmaking team a few more days to get the snow on the ground and pushed out for skiing and snowboarding.
