We’ve had some fast falling snow today. Over 5” has fallen so far and there’s still more to come! ❄️ ... See MoreSee Less

Comment on Facebook

We were there all week and the skiing was great. Your crew did an awesome job keeping the downhill runs groomed and the lifts moving.

We finally got snow with this storm, about 3-4", down here in Lambertville on the OH/ MI line. Very pretty but a bit messy.
