Many people hear “lake effect snow advisory” and groan, but not the staff at Mont Ripley! The last chair was put back on the Husky Chair Lift last week and Mont Ripley plans to open on Saturday, December 7, so now is the time to get ready for some great skiing or snowboarding. The ticket window is open along with Ripley Tune & Supply. Get your skis or board waxed, sharpened and ready to go and while you’re there check out the huge selection of goggles, helmets, gloves, the fantastic assortment of Mont Ripley apparel and more in the shop.
Mont Ripley will be closed on Thanksgiving Day to give the crew some much needed time with their families away from the hustle and bustle of making snow and getting the hill ready. They will be back at it on Black Friday, so stop by while you are out doing your Christmas shopping to get some great gifts. They will also be open on “White Saturday” (think lots of snow!) for all your skiing and snowboarding needs. The shop and ticket window are open 9-7 Friday and 9-5 Saturday.
Have you checked out the Mont Ripley website lately? It’s still a great place to get the snow report, buy your pass and learn about all the exciting opportunities Mont Ripley has to offer, but now there’s more. Mont Ripley is the first ski resort to have a Virtual Tour created by Trail Genius! Hit the slopes with Ski Patroller Chris Marr and his crew as they show you the trails at Mont Ripley. Choose a trail and watch the exciting video footage while learning some interesting statistics. Find out how fast he goes down Racer’s Ridge or what the elevation is at the top of Deer Track Trail and see his progress down a satellite image map.
