General Membership

Ski on your own between dawn and dusk (and sometimes later, when the lights are on!) by joining with a family membership, individual youth membership (under 17) or adult membership (17+).

Weather permitting, we try to offer fun events like evenings under the lights, community races and full moon ski celebrations.
