You’ve been asking and here’s our answer – we’re planning to open Cheers this Friday, Saturday and Sunday from 9am-4:30pm! We’ll also have some terrain park features near the base of Cheers. We’ll flip the switch to start snowmaking as soon as we can.

Lift tickets will be $25 for Adults (18-59) and $15 for Juniors (7-17) and Seniors (60-79). Rentals will also be $25 for Adults and $15 for Juniors and Seniors. We’ll close on Sunday at 4:30pm to continue snowmaking as temperatures permit. See you soon!
