Grab your gear because opening day is here! Mother Nature is celebrating with nearly a foot of snow on the way. Lifts – including the new gondola -- start spinning at 9am with top-to-bottom novice skiing and riding on 23 trails. That’s 124 skiable acres of 100% groomed terrain. Trail favorites include Black Bear, Polar Bear, Grizzly Bear and Suntanner. Temperatures today will average 24 degrees at the summit and 32 degrees at the base, with snow falling throughout the day. Today’s one day adult lift ticket price is $59.
Though the Gondola will be spinning today, the “formal” Gondi opening will be Saturday, November 29 at 8:30am so come dressed to impress and you could win a mini electric gondola from First Run Ski Shop.
As always, exciting things are happening throughout the resort. The 9th annual Gobble Gobble Wobble 5k run/walk takes off tomorrow morning and costumes are encouraged. Then it’s turkey dinner at Table 43.1 at Black Bear Lodge. Reservations are required, book early.
Friday the 28th is Snowlight in Vermont, when the entire Village lights up with beautiful donated trees. The magic begins at 5:30pm. The Base Lodge will have Stratton Foundation’s annual Tag Sale with live music upstairs at Grizzly’s from 3-6pm. Keep listening in on Saturday as another live performance rocks Grizzly’s from 3:30 – 6:30pm and again at 10pm with DJ Joe Bell. Between sets, stop by Stratton Mountain Urgent Care at Carlos Otis Clinic as they host their Grand Re-Opening Reception from 6-8pm.
Safety Message: Early season conditions exist. Please stay on groomed terrain. Play safe, play smart and enjoy the mountain!
