New for 2014/15 season-
Starting in mid-December (Date TBD). Heaven's Gate will be opening at 8:00 AM for everyone on weekends and holidays, allowing early access to the upper mountain and better skier distribution on the busiest days. (In past years, Heaven's Gate has opened at 9:00 AM.)
Weather permitting Mt. Ellen opens the weekend before Christmas and closes the last Sunday of March.
