49 Degrees North Ski Area to open season on Sunday, Nov. 17

WINTER SPORTS -- 49° North Ski Area is covered in snow!

Friday's storm dumped enough snow to allow the resort to open Sunday Nov. 17, with Chairs 1 and 3 operating from 9 a.m. – 3:30 p.m.

We plan on opening up to 14 runs throughout the day, conditions permitting. We plan on grooming up to 7 runs. Silver Ridge and the Central Basin area will be open, as well as Mahre’s Gold and Silver Dollar. The upper 2/3 of the mountain is covered in heavy powder over a layer of dense older snow, while the lower 1/3 of the mountain has thinner snow coverage. We will be offering a special early season ticket price of $20.  Limited services will be available. Early season conditions exist, please ski and ride with care.
