With plenty of snow coming in the forecast, resident skiers can get an early taste of powder as Red Mountain opens its T-bar slope to the public this Friday and Saturday evenings only, in advance of its December opening date.
The T-bar will transport shredders up the slope for night skiing from 6-9 p.m. on Friday and Saturday with costs $5 for juniors and seniors, $10 adults, and $25 for family of four.
Thanks to the $1.5 million investment in the state of the art snowmaking system the hill already has a good base and skiers from Whitewater, Washington State, and Red Mountain Racers have been taking advantage of the Legacy Training Centre and hitting the gates for more than a week now.
With the investment, Legacy has provided coverage of up to two GS and six Slalom lanes on the Racer Pitch (T-bar), and upper sections of the Back Trail for its inaugural year.
Red is scheduled to open Dec. 13.
