Heather Meadows Cafe open Fri-Sat-Sun-Mon View Cafe & Summer details here

Thank you to all of the season passholders, ticket buyers, employees, and volunteers who came to ride with us on the mountain for closing weekend! And to all who weren’t able to make it today, we appreciate each and every one of you for supporting your local, fiercely independent ski area. It was a weather-filled closing weekend with warm temps and endless sunshine on Saturday followed by fresh April snow on Sunday. We hope you enjoyed it as much as we did, and we can’t wait to have you all back on the mountain before too long!

Check out the video above with Gwyn and Duncan to hear their season recap and outlook for the future.
