Castle Mountain Resort opens on December 14, 2012

Castle Mountain will be starting the lifts for the 2012/13 winter ski and snowboard season on Friday, December 14.

The upper mountain has great early season conditions and the lower mountain is getting better day by day.

A new Prinoth Bison X Grooming Cat has been out preparing the mountain for opening. It has had a little help from a Techno Alpine snow-gun. The snow-gun has been making snow in the base area to help with areas that have very thin snow coverage due to recent warm temperatures. The combination of a new grooming cat and a snow-gun will have the base area looking great and much safer to ski/ride in.
