Our 50th anniversary season begins with our biggest Opening Day ever this Saturday! We kick off the Big 5-0 with celebratory events, giveaways, the debut of our Golden Anniversary Ale and, of course, snow. Our team has been burning the midnight oil getting the mountain ready for Saturday, so without any further ado, here's the gameplan:
PayDay, First Time and 3 Kings Lifts all start turning promptly at 9:00am on Saturday. Specific runs are still to be announced, but we'll be opening a combination of beginner and intermediate terrain along with a jib set-up in Lower 3 Kings. But terrain openings are just the beginning...
We'll be hooking up guests with special 50th anniversary gifts all day long, in addition to First Chair tee shirts to go along with the bragging rights of grabbing Chair #1 at each of the lifts opening Saturday. In the afternoon, the Miller Lite Apres Concert Series kicks off with the Motherlode Canyon Band entertaining guests on the PayDay Deck from 2:00 - 4:00pm. And we'll be debuting our signature Golden Anniversary Ale by Wasatch Brewery inside Legends Bar & Grill and Legacy Cafe - it's a light American Brown Ale with a hoppy aroma and taste that you'll love (as long as you're old enough).
Keeping with Opening Days past, guests will be greeted with free hot chocolate and donuts in the resort plaza beginning at 8:00am, and the first chair to depart PayDay Lift will break a celebratory banner to officially open the season.
We're counting down to an Opening Day 50 years in the making, and we couldn't be more excited to share the day - and the season - with you!
