Hyland is now closed for the season, it was certainly a ski season to remember! We are excited to move into the new chalet late summer, and have it opened for next ski season.
- The Chalet site is now an active construction site. It will not be open for recreation until construction activities are completed. Please respect posted construction boundaries.
- Hyland will not be open for summer activities this year. Disc golf, Morty’s, and Chalet event rentals will re-open April, 2016.
- We will be hosting some preview events late in the summer, as well as the Gilboa Ski Swap and Fall Chairlift Rides. Stay tuned for updates!
Thanks to everyone who made this season special!
Cold weather is here: With temperatures running up to 20° colder than usual for the last week, we were able to start making snow earlier than in a typical year. Our snowmakers have already converted nearly 6 million gallons of water into beautiful white snow.
A little out of the Ordinary: In a typical year we would have the slopes open soon after we had a streak of good snowmaking weather like we are currently enjoying. As you are aware, this season will be a little different than the past. The ski area will operate out of temporary facilities in the parking lot, and utilize a newly reconfigured and expanded Lake Normandale parking lot. We are working to get final approvals to move into those temporary facilities.
Opening Soon: We anticipate opening the day after Thanksgiving, which is a typical opening date for the season. Although we have to stick to our opening schedule to get everything online for the year, you can rest assured that we will have some of our best features in place. The terrain parks will be more complete, we anticipate all the rope tows and lifts will be running, and race teams should be able to set gates, which is not typical of opening day anywhere.
A Season to Remember: As Hyland builds for the future, we appreciate your continued patience as we work to get open as soon as possible!
