Today is the last day of our season. Get it while you can!

This week several Skiland employees got summer jobs and left us for those jobs. We’ve lost employees that are vital to the operation of the area.

What this means is that if you want to ski or board this season at Skiland, today is the last day to do it.

Honestly, looking at the forecast for the week ahead it seems somewhat unlikely that our snowpack would survive to next weekend anyway.

Come on up today and enjoy some great corn snow and help us close out a great season as well as twenty five years of operation by the Birdsall family.

Springtime downhill fun – one more day – today – at the home of the farthest north chairlift in North America – Mount Aurora Skiland.
