Mountain Report

Tips Up! (11/23/17 11:10 a.m.) It’s a bit wet out on the slopes but on the bright side, the rain has lifted and the temps are forecasted to drop later this evening! Expect the trails to be wet and spring-like today. Coverage is thin so ski/ride with caution and watch for unmarked objects. The Chinook Express & Forest Queen Express lifts are open today and tickets are reduced to $40. No trails were groomed overnight to help preserve the early season snowpack. We are planning to open the Mt. Rainier Gondola, Rainier Express and Green Valley Chairlifts tomorrow, weather & conditions permitting. The Discovery Chairlift will not be open tomorrow. Tickets will be $55.  The Summit House will remain closed until next week.  Campbell Basin Lodge is closed today but we plan to have it open tomorrow and through the weekend.  The Cascade Grill is open for breakfast until 10:30 a.m. and the Bullwheel opens for lunch starting at 10:30 a.m.  Looking for the best way to save on lift tickets?  Look no further than our 5-Packs which are available online now.  Save up to $60 on tickets during our Winter Whiteout Sale Nov. 24th-27th!  La Nina is coming so get ready.
