All three of Sol­dier Moun­tain’s lifts are open, and 30 of its 36 trails are avail­able for ski­ing. The moun­tain hasn’t seen any fresh snow this week, but the base depth is 17 inches.

Snow is in the forecast for Sun­day. If you head up early next week, ex­pect chilly tem­per­a­tures in the teens.

Ring in the new year with the New Year’s Eve Bub­bly Bash at River Run Lodge, from 9 p.m. to 1 a.m., or bring the kids and head to Sun Val­ley a bit ear­lier Mon­day for fam­ily night ski­ing and fire­works.


Nearly all of Tamarack’s trails are open, and ev­ery lift is run­ning.
