After a heavy snow in October, hopes were high for an early opening of the Hogadon Ski Area. However Mother Nature has been a bit stingy with the snowfall and colder temperatures until just the past few weeks. The colder temperatures have allowed the staff at Hogadon to make snow and groom runs to the point of announcing a partial opening of the ski area for this Saturday December 14th, 2013.

Hogadon Ski Area will open with two runs; “Park Avenue” and “Boomerang”. Lifts will run on Saturday from 9:00am-4:00pm. Daily lift tickets will be $25 until further runs are opened.

Business hours for the 2013-2014 season will be Wednesday through Sunday from 9:00am-4:00pm.

Season passes, including the popular “First-Time Season Pass” and the new “Family Season Pass” are available for purchase by visiting Hogadon Ski Area upon opening or by visiting the Casper Recreation Center.
