After multiple storms dropped 3 to 4 feet of snow on the Mount Shasta area, all eyes are on the Mt. Shasta Ski Park to see when they might open for a transformative season with a brand-new ski lift. With more snow on the way, we could see them open early.
On Monday, the ski park announced they had received 27 inches of new snow and their efforts to open the park as soon as possible.
“We are very excited to see so much snow this early in December and the team is working hard to prepare for an early opening date,” wrote the park on Instagram. “Stayed tuned for an official announcement soon!”
Then, their Tuesday morning webcam showed a beautiful powder wonderland:
With more snow in the forecast, the ski park looks like it could open any day now, possibly this week. It will certainly be a cause for celebration with the opening of the brand-new Gray Butte lift, which will drastically change the popular ski park. The fixed quad lift to the top of Gray Butte will open 88 acres of skiable terrain, add five new runs, increase the resort’s elevation to 7,500 feet and create a 3-mile long run from top to bottom.
Ski season has arrived in Northern California, and it may get much better with the opening of the Mt. Shasta Ski Park. Stay tuned!
