WINTER SPORTS — Silver Mountain Resort plans to open its lifts for skiers on Friday, Nov. 29, joining the rest of the region's ski resorts in opening limited terrain to take advantage of early season snow.

Following is the just-released announcement from Silver Mountain:

Silver Mountain Resort will be opening for skiing, boarding, tubing, snowshoeing and scenic rides Friday November 29th through Sunday December 1st. The first gondola will load at 8:15am, skiing and tubing will start at 9:00am and go until 4:00pm. This will be a great chance to get some first tracks for the season and burn off some of that Thanksgiving dinner. This will be a limited opening for skiing and boarding with select runs open along with chairs 1, 2 and the carpet lift. We will be offering reduced price lift tickets for skiers and boarders with adult tickets at $29.95 and youth tickets at $27.95. The best way to experience Silver is to stay at the base in their luxurious lodging and enjoy the 84 degree warm of Idaho's largest indoor waterpark.

There are plenty of activities to keep the family busy this weekend at Silver Mountain Resort. We will be having a traditional Thanksgiving dinner at Noah's Canteen, a premier of Warren Miller's “Ticket to Ride” on the 29th in Noah's loft and our Village Christmas Tree Lighting on the 30th, complete with warm drinks and caroling.

Currently there is a 10 inch base at the Mountain House and 22 inches at Kellogg Peak. NOAA is forecasting another storm system for Friday the 29th and we will be opening more terrain as conditions permit. For more information please visit our website.
