news flash

Purchase your Sno-Park permit by using the button just to the top. It goes straight to the State Parks permit site. If you want to use any Sno-Park on I-90 east of the summit except Gold Creek or Easton Reload, you will need the special grooming add on sticker.

Well, that is a wrap for the regular scheduled 2022/2023 season. I think we reached pre COVID levels of use and it wasn't so bonkers except for those new snow and blue sky weekends. That is not saying it wasn't busy. I saw many of you out there enjoying our wonderfully groomed ski trails.  For those of you who ski until the snow melts, Kongsbergers Ski Club arranged and funded the contractor to continue grooming at Cabin Creek this weekend and next depending on conditions. Check out Kongsberger Ski Club website for updates.

Also - no plowing and Crystal gate is probably (never heard a positive from the land manager) open through April 9th and sanitation will remain until gate closes.
