Skiing and Snowboarding

Giants Ridge will open for alpine and Nordic skiing on Friday, December 9! Alpine opening will include Beginner’s Area & Sarajevo. As snowmaking continues and ramps up with the colder temperatures, more alpine runs and lifts will be added. Nordic opening will include 40k on Bronze, Summit, Silver, Gold, Cedar, and Northern Lights trails with a 2” base. Older skis (rock skis) are recommended until more natural snowfall increases our base. Fat bikes are not permitted on any Nordic trails until further notice.
