In addition to skiing and snowboarding on Bluebird, for the first time in the resort’s history, Lee Canyon offers winter scenic chairlift rides on Sherwood.
Lee Canyon announces Spring Sessions, three-day weekend operations starting Friday, April 9 where skiing and snowboarding will be offered on terrain served by Lee Canyon’s Bluebird chair only. Guests can also enjoy winter scenic chairlift rides on the Sherwood chair, which will not be open for skiing and snowboarding. During Spring Sessions, all 2020/21 season passes will be honored, including specialty passes like Battle Born and Weekday passes. Daily lift tickets can be purchased online for $39; 2020/21 Ride Local cardholder can access the area for $29. Hours of operation will be 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Lee Canyon will assess snow conditions and weather forecasts, and the continuation of Spring Sessions will be announced weekly on Sunday.
“This was a challenging year for everyone, and escaping in nature was something people needed. We appreciate everyone who came up to Lee Canyon and supported us, and want to express our gratitude,” says Jim Seely, Lee Canyon’s marketing director. “Together, we moved through an unprecedented year and became an even stronger community.”
While food and beverage outlets will be operating during Spring Sessions, Rabbit Peak, Lee Canyon’s bunny hill, will not be running. Lessons and ski and snowboard rentals will also not be offered. All previous COVID-19 guidelines will be in effect, including mandatory face masks, parking reservations, and limited seating in all indoor dining areas.
