One More Weekend at Alpental

What the heck, let's give it a shot! If snow conditions and coverage hold up, Alpental will reopen April 30 - May 1 for one final weekend. Spread the word and tell your friends, let's close this year out strong in true PNW fashion!

The rapid deterioration of the snowpack has slowed significantly compared to the heavy melt of last week, giving us fair confidence that one more weekend is possible. Additionally, we've been patiently watching the weather models over the last 48 hours and everything points to a drier, sunnier weekend to come. The skiing and boarding both Saturday and Sunday was surprisingly good, so it doesn't feel right to pull the plug just yet. Be sure to stay tuned thoughout the week for any possible updates to this plan. Operations next weekend will definitely be conditions dependent.

Check the NOAA forecast.

Booter Buddies is still on! The location has changed and the event will take place on lower Dom. More info here.

Cinco de Mayo - UPDATE 4/30

Unfortunately we won't make it to Cinco de Mayo this year. The snow is going fast, especially on lower mountain, and the weather outlook doesn't look good for the rest of the week. Sunday, May 1 will be our last day of the 2015-2016 season. Gather up your friends and family and come take one last ride at your local mountain on what surely will amount to a beautiful and memorable May Day!
