Stony Mountain Ski Area seasons its soft terrain park with complete coverage of snow so that families and fancy foot-workers can dust up their skiing and snowboarding skills. Gab with a buddy and glide on one of the two lifts (up to $49.28) that stretch along the six 100-foot vertical runs. Once booted and equipped with a snowboard (up to $33.60), float along the fresh powder and hone moves such as a fakie ollie or the austere spaghetti mouth spin. Stony Mountain also saddles skiers with boots and pole rental (up to $22.40) before sprinkling them with confetti and adorning them with a delicious iced greeting. Novice snow snorkelers can also take an hour to brush up or completely brandish a new knack during a snowboarding or ski lesson ($16.80). Stony Mountain's season runs until April, when the sun returns from its annual spa retreat of daily helium and hydrogen colonics.
Stony Mountain Ski Area
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.
