The resort’s snowmaking team has been working on preparing the resort since November 22. They have spent the last eight days piling “huge piles of snow at every opportunity,” the resort added.
Those who return this year will notice a new chairlift thanks to a major improvement project undertaken by the resort. The Doppelmayr Alpen Star quadruple fixed-grip chairlift has replaced the venerable Avalanche chairlift and will open when the terrain it serves opens.
Additionally, Hidden Valley Resort and Laurel Mountain Resort will continue to create snow prior to opening in early to mid-December.
