13 of 15 Lifts Expected for Christmas Week

Anticipated Opening

CBMR is excited to be opening more terrain as we ramp up operations in anticipation of the holiday season!  We are pleased to announce we expect to have 13 of 15 lifts spinning for Christmas week. Our snowmaking team is doing an incredible job maximizing their opportunities to make as much snow as they can.  As always, all openings are anticipated openings but the resort is doing it’s very best to work to open more lifts and terrain!  Be sure to stay tuned to our social media channels to see photos and video of our current conditions. There is a ton of fun to be had on the mountain, and we look forward to seeing many returning faces come back to our resort this holiday season, along with welcoming many new faces as well!

Here is our updated (December 26) anticipated terrain opening plan: 

Friday, December 15, we opened Silver Queen and Painter Boy lifts.  With the addition of Teocalli Lift spinning starting last Saturday for daily operations, we had 8 lifts running over the weekend and added significant skiable acreage. 

Today we opened Prospect Lift and the Prospector trail. West Wall lift along with the Spruce Carpet, are planned to open Saturday, December 23 which will mean we expect to have 12 lifts open prior to Christmas. We also anticipate opening the Gold Link by Wednesday, 12/27 and and The East River Lift by Thursday 12/28, therefore increasing our lift count to 13 of 15 lifts within the next week.    

The snow dances are working with up to 18” of new snow in the forecast through the weekend. Make sure to check out our snow report for the latest and greatest info each day on terrain and lifts. We look forward to seeing you all out on the mountain!
