Mountain Creek intends to open South on Saturday (Jan 20th) for race training only as defined below until they can blow more snow in other areas of South following Vernon.
The Race Dept issued the following statement earlier this afternoon:
â€œWe would like to this opportunity to thank everyone for their continued support and patience. With the upcoming weather permitting us to start making snow again Mountain Creek has committed to opening the RACE HILL although their primary focus will be to get Vernon up and in operation. Because of the man hours involved, at this time the Race Hill only will be operational at South. In order to provide our athletes with the best possible terrain we will be opening the hill to racers, coaches and officials only. Parents wishing to view the races must hike to the finish area. Parents wishing to ski are able to do so at Vernon. Harvest Market and Moguls will be open during our operating hours with a limited menu. Rentals and ski school will be operating at Vernon only.â€œ
