Friday Night Moonlight Ski 
6:00pm-9:00pm (Last ski rental at 8:00pm)

The entire week between Christmas Day and New Year's Day is considered a holiday.  This means if weather permits, ski rental will be open 10:00am to 4:00pm.  The parks will close at 5pm on Christmas Eve and reopen the day after Christmas.

Track is set every morning that ski rental is open (if conditions permit), and if enough snow has fallen to create a decent base.  At Burchfield Park, track can be set daily.  Setting track is when a snowmobile pulls a two row track and makes a lane for one skier.
