This Year’s Gifts Won’t Fit Under the Tree… 

This holiday season, we thought we’d get a jump start on our gift-giving.

GIFT 1: OPENING THE BACKSIDE SATURDAY!

We’re kicking off December with one of the earliest openings of the backside accessed by Lift 3 ever! Fun fact: Hermosa Park lift was originally a double chairlift installed in the summer of 1972. We know we’re not the only ones who are excited to celebrate “The Grizzly Awakens Early.”

Senior Director of Mountain Ops, Sam Williams, is also planning to open more trails including Peace, Boogie, Snag, Airmail, Zinfandel, Where and Deadspike (weather permitting). Williams’ crew continues to make snow across the backside to open additional lifts and terrain as soon as possible. Please reference the snow report on Saturday morning for the up-to-date information or subscribe to our daily snow report.

GIFT 2: NEW TRAILS!

We’re excited to announce four trails to our terrain this season: Sun Dog (frontside double black diamond), Monkey Launch Chutes (frontside double black chutes), 777 (frontside black tree trail) and When (frontside blue tree trail). While these trails are not yet open to the public, we wanted to give you a sneak peak on what we’ve been working on.

What’s Else Is New This Season?

  • Improved snowmaking infrastructure to increase efficiency, production, and snow quality. 
  • Over 400 new seats at dining outlets across the resort!
  • Daily breakfast buffet at Purgy’s (FREE for lodging guests).
