Opening Day For the 2015-16 Season is: Saturday, November 21

The wait is over and we’ve finally recovered from the wild windstorm Tuesday night. We will be open for skiing and snowboarding starting Saturday, November 21.


There’s new snow and coverage is solid in Green Valley! Currently there is no easy way down – Green Valley services intermediate and advance terrain only. We hope to make enough snow to get the beginner area open soon. There will not be any grooming this weekend either since the snowpack is too low for the heavy machinery. We plan to remain open and will continue to expand operations as weather and conditions allow. Stay tuned for updates on rates, hours & operations daily.




Lifts, Hours & Rates:


Lifts Open: Mt. Rainier Gondola and Green Valley Express (intermediate and advanced terrain only & no grooming!)

Rates: $40 adults (ages 16-69), $30 youth (11-15) & seniors (70+) , kids 10 & under ski FREE with paid adults

Hours: 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.


Details: Last skier upload on the gondola is 2:30 p.m., last scenic upload is 3:00 p.m., last skier upload on the Green Valley chair is 3:00 p.m. & last gondola download for everyone is 3:30 p.m. (plan for a 5-10 minute walk/hike up the ridge to catch the gondola back down to the base no later than 3:30 p.m.).


The Mt. Rainier Gondola is open for sightseeing and foot-passengers are welcome anytime.

Scenic round-trip gondola rates: $20 adults (ages 16-69), $15 youth & senior (11-5 & 70+), $5 Kids 10 & under
