The Outdoor Center
Closed for the Season
Update as of March 27, 2023 | Thank you for an incredible season. The Outdoor Center lodge is now closed. It is our intent to continue grooming the network for as long as conditions and snow levels allow. You may continue to ski and enjoy the trails at your own risk.
