Updated Mon. Dec 9
The lifts have stopped spinning and will be closed for the week while snow making continues. Very cold temps (read: EXCELLENT snow making conditions!) are expected this week.
Schuss Mtn will re-open Saturday, Dec 14, for the season (open daily) with our first Sardine Special of the season.

Summit Mountain is awaiting its Opening Day.
If you’re aware of micro-climate science, you probably understand how snow making conditions for Summit and Schuss can be radically different despite being within a few miles of each other. That’s because until Lake Bellaire freezes, the humidity coming off the lake can alter wet bulb measurements causing snowmaking to be much more difficult and challenging (than at Schuss). The humidity can also keep air temps 2-4 degrees warmer.
Keep your fingers crossed for cold, dry air.

The Nordic Center is closed but we are ready for a very snowy season and will open soon near the Pine Cone trailhead in Schuss Village.
All Nordic trails have been rolled. Pine Cone has been groomed with the Tidd Tech and track set where possible for classic skiers. Conditions are variable.
If you’re a cross county enthusiasts (and if you’re reading this, you probably are!) to have this much available on December 7, well, we’ll take it! See you out there.
Looking at next week’s forecast and the possibility of more natural snow, we’re hopeful the remainder of the trail system is able to be created soon.
