2022-23 Winter Opening Plans

Update 12/5/22: We’ve postponed our opening date. See our latest post for details.

Original post: We’re excited to welcome everyone back to Arctic Valley for skiing, riding, and tubing this winter! We’re hard at work hiring (we still need more employees, so if you’ve always dreamed of being a liftie, fill out an application!), making snow when the weather allows, and getting the lifts and equipment ready for a fun, successful season.

  • Saturday & Sunday operations, with extra days during Christmas Break, MLK & President’s Day holidays, and Spring Break. Thursday and Friday operations are March 2nd-April 14th, 1pm-7:30pm (shorter the first couple weeks as we wait for daylight to increase).
