It was always going to be a white Christmas out here at Powder Ridge, but the fresh 2 inches that fell last night got all of us out here at 'The Ridge' back in the holiday mood! Falling temps and our groomers have got the hill in great shape and it's going to be a great week for skiing, snowboarding and snowtubing! Come out to Powder Ridge and fall in love with winter!

Due to the poor and changing weather conditions we will be closed today (Monday). As the weather changes over to below freezing temps and hopefully snow we will be working the hill hard with our snow grooming machines.
We will reopen Tuesday afternoon at 4 pm

In all of the years we have been doing this we have never seen a start to the season like this. Here it is the 22nd of November and 90% of the hill is open. Most seasons we would be just getting going with snowmaking and hoping to get a run or two open for the day after Thanksgiving. Our snow making crew has done a fantastic job getting the hill in super shape so come on out and enjoy the snow.
Thanks to everyone that came out yesterday to enjoy a day of skiing and snowboarding. Nice to see so many season pass holders getting out and beginning to use their passes. If you haven't purchased your pass for this year there is still plenty of time to do so. Don't miss out on the ability to come out to "The Ridge" as much as you want to this season.
