Running Springs, CA – Come on up to Snow Valley Mountain Resort and enjoy basically the entire mountain.
Slide Peak at 7,841-feet is now open with lifts 8, 9 and 11 accessing great terrain for the first time this season. The roads are clear and with no restrictions so there’s now excuse not to head to Snow Valley.
Far above the tree line, you’ll get the feeling you’re on top of the world when you reach the top of Lift 11 on Slide Peak. The Face of Slide offers some of the steepest terrain around on trails like Show Me and Snake Run. Slide Peak is not just for advanced skiers and snowboarders – intermediate trails can be found on the western portion of Slide Peak on Nord Valley and West Slide.
Winter temperatures have allowed productive snowmaking runs overnight, with the average base depth measuring 18-30 inches, and lift tickets are at holiday rates through Sunday, January 6.
Snow Valley also offers lessons at the Learning Center, so there are plenty of snow play opportunities making Snow Valley a great place to enjoy the day.
Weather and conditions permitting, Snow Valley will be offering night sessions — at special rates — on January 4-5.
