Postponed Opening Day

Dear Nordic Family,

While we have been making snow any chance we can get, the temperatures this week are not compatible for blasting snow for opening day. We are doing our best to get the mountain open, but for now December 3rd will not be our opening date. 

Next week’s forecast is looking more promising, with snow in the forecast on Tuesday December, 7. For the most current updates, check our Instagram and Facebook pages.

You can move any pre purchased tickets to another day and pay the difference or have the credit added to your account.

Come pick up your season passes at Nordic on December 1st, 2nd, and 3rd 9am-4pm

Thank ...
