Discovery Ski Area, Big Sky Resort Set to Open Lifts Thanksgiving Day
After receiving a whopping 10 inches of snow over the weekend, Discovery Ski Basin is set to open Thanksgiving Day. Although not all lifts may be opened, President Ciche Pitcher said Discovery will continue to operate Saturdays and Sundays through December, and starting Dec. 20 will open seven days a week through the rest of the season.
"We're going to open Thursday, on Thanksgiving Day, and we'll have a couple of our chairlifts open," Pitcher said. "As of Sunday night when we made the decision to open, it looked pretty good over there, and it's just kept snowing. We're working as quickly as we can to open up more terrain. I can't tell you how excited we are to be going into Thanksgiving with this big storm sitting here and it's just seems to keep delivering."
Pitcher said lift tickets will be $21 all weekend long.
Big Sky Ski Resort outside of Bozeman will also be opening on Thanksgiving Day.
Other ski mountains like Snowbowl are expected to open on December 5. Lost Trail, on the other hand, is still unsure when their lifts will open.
