Three new trails—Mueller’s Mile, Ridgecrest, and Slot—opened this season for even more fun on the slopes. Stayed tuned for even more new trails coming in 2023 and 2024, including a double black diamond. An additional 84 new semi-automatic HKD low-energy snow guns and 21,000 feet of new snowmaking pipe means the powder will stay fresh out on the mountain. Perfect Break also opened up recently, a new cutting edge entertainment facility. The new recreational activity offers E-Sports gaming and tournaments for guests and is comprised of two Topgolf Swing Suites, 12 Game Up E-Sports computers, as well as food and beverage options.
What are the best apres ski activities in the resort and in the area?
There are plenty of spots around the resort to relax and warm up. Sit by the fire slope-side at Base Camp, or warm up inside at Elevations Lounge in the ski lodge.

Work together as a team to solve the mystery in the immersive escape rooms or treat yourself to a relaxing day at the spa.
