More information

Lift facilities are OPEN today. We are experiencing some mechanical issues with the High Noon Express this morning due to the ice build-up overnight. The Maintenance team is working on this and we expect it to re-open within the hour. It is forecast to remain fine and clear for the rest of the day. The Alpine Meadow is now closed for the season. There are no beginner facilities available. Lift Day Pass prices are reduced - Adult now $70 for an Adult all mountain pass and $42 for a Youth all mountain pass.
