19″ of New Snow!

The wait is over — can you believe opening day is tomorrow?! We couldn’t be more excited to kick off another incredible season by being the first ski area to open in Arizona, and Mother Nature brought the goods just in time. With the storm rolling in Tuesday night, we received 4″ by Wednesday morning and a whopping 15″ last night for a total of 19″ of new snow this week — and it’s still snowing! 

On Friday November 22, we’re planning to open the Grand Canyon Express high-speed chairlift, accessing four intermediate trails (Midway Catwalk, Logjam, Wild Turkey, and Round Up) plus select terrain park features. The Little Spruce conveyor lift is also planned to be open, offering access to beginner terrain. Opening plans are weather dependent, so please check our Snow Report daily for the latest updates!

Check out the photos from this morning and don’t forget to buy your tickets in advance to save. The lifts start turning at 9am tomorrow — we’ll see you then!
