Stony Mountain Ski Area’s 100-foot vertical slopes have kept hill slicers of all abilities in motion every winter since 1966. Tandem gliders equipped with evening lift passes can spend half a day careening down six well-maintained runs, cutting through powder forged by Stony Mountain’s snowmakers and their elven apprentices. Two lifts—a handle tow and rope tow—facilitate hours of unfettered up-and-downing while preserving guests’ energy for freestyling down the slopes. Alternatively, a Discover Snowboarding package grants riders the chance to build up an arsenal of boarding know-how in a friendly setting. Once pupils have strapped feet to their rental planks, a two-hour group instructional class helmed by an expert instructor teaches the essentials of the sport, including carving, executing link turns, and high-fiving a passing mountain goat mid-slalom. Women- and girls-only lessons are also available.
Stony Mountain Ski Area’s rates fluctuate depending upon age.

About Stony Mountain
Skiers and snowboarders carve down the 100-foot vertical slope off the Stony Mountain Ski Area, leaving a waving path in their wake as they make their descent. One handle tow and one rope tow tote skiers and boarders to the summit, where they can choose to descend down one of six groomed runs kept swathed in powder by Stony Mountain’s snowmakers. Stony Mountain also rents out alpine equipment for those without their own skis, snowboards, or bionic dogsleds.
