Mud Season is upon us! Whether we want it or not, it’s right around the corner. Please drive with caution when on dirt roads as spring conditions can make travel unsafe. Also, just a reminder, if the road gets muddy and unpassable, turn around – It’s not worth destroying a road and making it worse.


We’ve really been having some strange weather events this early in the spring. Just hoping we can ski until late April! To make sure, check with the extended forecast via the Weather Channel. Also, check out the lift status by clicking the link below!
