Early Snow and High Hopes

Welcome everyone to the 2017-18 ski season! We got snow at Duck Mountain at the beginning of November this year and amazingly it stayed!  I was out grooming soon after and we have a good 3 inch base. (about 8 cm) This is a very promising start.

However, we still need more snow before we can open. I have been answering many questions about opening. Each year we try to open as soon as we have the snow conditions to permit it. With only 6 inches(15cm) of snowfall that has been packed into a base so far there is still not enough snow to cover our slopes properly.

We have fantastic All Natural Snow at Duck Mountain!

No Snowmaking!

So now we play the waiting game. Eyes to the skies and hoping for a White Christmas.

We hope to open on December 23rd but we need more snowfall before then. Keep watching here and on Facebook for updates.
