Current Ski Conditions

Updated: Saturday, April 1, 2023  

Hi Folks,

Yesterday's sunny, 60+ degrees had quite the impact on our trails. And with temperature below freezing overnight, whatever snow is left will be rock hard today until it softens up later this afternoon. With continued warm, spring weather in the forecast for this week, we think it's time to call it a season and look forward to off-season possibilities.

Thanks so much for your support this winter. We started the season with some fits and starts, but in the end, we had another good year sustained by season pass purchases and some really nice conditions. We hope you were able to take full advantage of the late-blossoming season. We're looking forward to various trail additions and improvements this summer/fall, so stay tuned for notes regarding trail projects and opportunities to be involved.

Dave Brautigam
President, CHNSA
