Poohkay Quartz Dec 9 (1 of 3)
The sledding around Golden has been firing lately. We’ve been treated to some great snow and the early season conditions have been blanketed by consecutive power dumps. The good news is that there is still lots left out there and the snow has set up to make for good travel conditions.

We’re happy to report this week that all 3 of our gates: Gorman, Quartz and Silent Pass will be open this weekend in what we’re calling a preview weekend. Prices at the gates will be full at Quartz, reduced at Silent and free at Gorman. Gate staff will be happy to sell you a season membership at every gate.
