Earliest Chair 9 Opening in Years!

Earliest Chair 9 Opening in Years!

A lot of people have been eagerly awaiting the opening of the Continental Divide's Chair 9 and yesterday saw one of the earliest Chair 9 openings in the lift's history! The snowfall so far this year has been above average and the 16" we received on Monday and Tuesday gave us what we needed to get The Ridge open. Chair 9 is currently providing access to Patrol Bowl and Rookie Road with the chance of more opening soon. Chair 9 will continue to operate for the 2010 - 2011 season as long as conditions permit.

The good news doesn't stop there; there is more snow in the forecast for this weekend! Meteorologists can't agree on exactly how much we may get, but keep an eye on the weather Friday night and Saturday because it could be a powder weekend. Be sure to sign up for our custom snow reports so you don't miss another powder day.
