Opening Day Information

westreservoir10.13 Opening day is coming soon.  Are you ready?  All we need are cold temperatures or natural snow to get started.  Purchase your 17/18 season pass now and come join us The West Resort will be our primary focus and we plan to be the first resort to open in the region with top-to-bottom terrain features and slopes for beginner to upper intermediate skiers and snowboarders.  With nearly three times the water for snowmaking as last year, we will be able to make a ton of snow this winter and that means earlier openings, better coverage, more days at East, more snow features, and a longer season. Wax those skis and boards...winter is almost here!

Will There Be Snowmaking?

We make snow at every opportunity early season to open new terrain as quickly as possible.  When snowmaking is underway be sure to dress warmly and keep your head covered.  Protecting your face makes ALL the difference when snowmaking is on so don't risk a bad day when something as simple as a face mask can help.  Click here to see when and where snow is being made.  Click here to learn more about HOW snow is made.
