Update On Summer Work

It’s been a busy summer at the Mountain. Did you know that each summer we put over 1,000 man-hours of preventative maintenance into our lifts? That’s over 200 hours working on each lift!

In addition to our annual lift maintenance, we have added permanent lighting on the Meadow Mountain Chairlift. Last season, having two chairlifts available for Night Skiing was extremely popular so we made the decision to make Meadow Mountain a permanent addition to our Night Skiing Operation.

We have also been busy clearing downed trees, replacing trail signs, making updates to the snowmaking system, painting buildings, decks and many other projects across the mountain.

Season Leases & Equipment Sale

Our annual Season Lease & Equipment Sale starts Saturday, October 2nd.  This year, we have brought in 575+ sets of new skis, 200+ pairs of new ski and snowboard boots, and 20+ new snowboards.  With this large addition to our inventory, we will be looking to sell quite a few sets of older equipment.

Lease appointments will be available on Saturdays and Sundays beginning October 2nd through the start of ski season.  You can book your season lease appointment on our website beginning at 4pm on Wednesday, September 1st. While appointments are not required, they are highly recommended.

We will release more season lease details prior to the appointment booking going live.

NOAA Winter Prediction

We are excited to say that last week, the NOAA Climate Prediction Center released it’s long range Winter 2021.2022 forecast and it looks good for Great Divide!

The three-month forecast for November, December, and January show average temperatures with above-average precipitation for our region. What this means for Great Divide is that we can expect mild temperatures with lots of snow.

Season Pass Sale & Pick-Up

Hopefully you are excited for a snowy winter as we are!  Season Passes are currently on sale on our website.  Get yours before December 1st to save money!  Season passes are a great way to save time in the ticket line.

While Season Passes can be picked up at the office on Saturdays and Sundays beginning October 4th, we are currently working on scheduling locations for in-town pick-ups on a few days in October.  Stay tuned for more details!

Support Konnor Ralph

Konnor was recently named to the USA Freeski Team.  Konnor started his skiing career at Great Divide and we couldn’t be more proud to watch him as he works to qualify for the Winter Olympics.

This is a huge accomplishment, but also comes at a significant financial cost.  Konnor and his family are organizing several fundraisers over the coming months as well as having a GoFundMe page and account at Valley Bank to help offset these costs.  Follow his journey on Facebook.

Head over to Lewis & Clark Brewery on Sunday, August 29th from 5-8pm to meet Konnor and listen to some great music from Vinyl City.

Nights are getting cooler and ski season will be here before we know it.  Stay tuned for more updates as we get closer to opening day!
