WINTER SPORTS -- Lift ticket prices on Friday at Silver Mountain Resort will be the same as they were in the beginning.
In 1968, the original Jackass Ski Bowl on Wardner Peak opened to the public with a single Riblet chair lift at the end of an adventurous drive to the Tamarack Lodge.
The name was changed in 1972 to Silverhorn and then in 1990, with the addition of new lifts and the famous gondola ride up the mountain, the name was changed again to Silver Mountain Resort.
The resort is offering retro prices Friday (Jan. 6): $11 plus tax for a day of skiing, snowboarding followed by a party.
On Saturday, the Skier/BoarderX is scheduled.
