Uphill Travel Is Open For The Season

Uphill travel will be open on Hobo Queen tomorrow morning. The Empress, Homestake and Little Hope routes will be closed Sunday, January 23.

The early bird gets the powder turn…or so the saying goes.
If you’re up for morning solitude and a good workout before the day really gets going, Terry Peak is happy to provide its seasonpass holders with the opportunity to enjoy our slopes even before the lifts start running.

Three routes are provided daily for skinning from 6:00 am until 9:00 am.  As conditions permit, skinning may be available on Little Hope on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays from 10:00 am until 3:00 pm (inquire with Ski Patrol regarding any additional availability on days when the Coeur Wharf Express lift is not operating).
