As snow finally took the Sierra, on Friday, March 2, China Peak Mountain Resort announced they are open to skiers- and they are hoping to remain open through late April.
After giving up on the season entirely the resort posted the following on their website.
"The cruelest move by Mother Nature ... no snow for 75 days, then 4-5 feet of snow in 24 hours with a very limited staff. We are doing everything we can to get ready for today, Chairs 2 & 6 plus the beginner area. Sorry we aren't having a Grand Opening of the new Chair 2, but today's riders will be the first."
The resort will be open from 9 a.m. - 4p.m. Friday through Monday and everyday of the week from March 26-30.
The resort thanks its skiers for their patience during their most difficult season and will announce the long awaited 60th Anniversary celebration, likely sometime in late March or early April soon.
