Summit Lift opens! Today we opened the Summit lift to the top of Snow King Mountain! It s a beautiful blue-sky day today, temps in the lower 20s just perfect. We ve only had 34 inches of snowfall up top but we ve retained a nice 14 base it s holding up well. Obviously there are obstacles but we re doing better than many ski areas around the country. 18 of man-made snow at the base makes for fun cruising and the ski teams have been getting some excellent race practice in. We also opened the beginner rope tow today and it was BUSY with lots of folks taking lessons and learning to ski and snowboard. What a perfect spot to learn, a nice gentle slope with great instructors. Little kids mixing with adults, really fun to watch. Our newest snowgun made a TON of snow, the grooming crew pushed it out, smoothed it down and it s just perfect now. We should be opening King Tubes , the Snow Tubing Park, tomorrow will keep you posted. Rafferty s lift will open as conditions improve, still need to make a little more snow but its getting really close. Come on out the mountain is in great shape for what snow has fallen. Thanks for supporting Snow King Mountain!
