Last weekend Adam Piccolo was thrilled with the numbers of anxious skiiers and snowboarders. The numbers were the highest they had seen at the mountain in 10 years. Saturday saw 240 lift tickets sold and on Sunday an additional 207 more lift tickets were purchased.

Unfortunately, an o-ring leak on the brake back up which forced Piccolo and his team to resurrect the T- bar. “That the reason we still have the T-bar, for incidences just like this one,” Piccolo stated. It didn’t stop skiiers from having a great opening weekend up at the mountain.
The new Red Rock Bistro food services was hopping all day serving up delicious food to guests. Fan favorites included waffle fries and hot sandwiches from the Panini grill.
The day lodge will be open daily until January 6th with the exception of Christmas Day. If you like playing in the snow in your own backyard, head up to Mt. Timothy for a day of fun and incredible snow conditions.
