Here we go!

Under bluebird skies, we kicked off the 2015-16 season Thursday, January 7. It was a gorgeous day of skiing and riding with excellent conditions on full width Sissy-Rosebowl and three features in a mini terrain park. The Bunny Hill opened in the afternoon for night skiing. Learn to Ski & Ride Lessons are now available daily at 10, 12 and 2. The season is full on underway with daily specials in effect. A good crowd enjoyed the first Steak Night of the season. Live entertainment starts tonight at the first Wing Night with Gordon, Tim & Bruce. The trio returns for Apres Ski on Saturday. Headlining Saturday night, is the talented Garrett Mason for Blues Night. $10 cover at the door. Band starts at 9pm. Snowmaking continues whenever temps permit around the mountain. Season Programs start next weekend, Jan. 16/17, with the exception of the Masters Blasters which starts up this weekend. See you here!

Opening Update

Dec. 31, 2015 – Important Update: Mother Nature hasn’t cooperated for opening this weekend. We’ve been making snow whenever the opportunity has allowed us. Ski Wentworth has a lot of terrain to adequately cover and we need more cold snowmaking weather. Our snowmakers will be hard at it this weekend pounding out the snow, taking advantage of the upcoming cold weather window. So be patient. And don’t worry. It’s coming. Based on the forecast, the planned opening date is Thursday, January 7. We’ll update as we get closer.

Snowmaking Continues…

After two days of snowmaking, we’ve made great headway and some impressive piles of snow. However, there is more snow to be made and temperatures are on the rise leading up to the weekend. It’s a little early to make a call on opening date. Stay tuned. And THINK COLD!

Snowmaking starts

Dec. 20, 2015
Mother Nature gave us a cold window of opportunity, so we fired up snowmaking on Dec. 20. Looks like we’ll have a 24 hour run. Not enough time to get open, and we have some more mild temperatures in the forecast, but its a start!! Keep checking back for updates on an opening date.
