When does your season start?

It varies from year to year based on snowfall. We are dependent on natural snow. We are typically open by the first week of December.

Do you make snow?

Adventure Mountain is uniquely located along the Pacific crest at an elevation of 7,400 feet, and typically receives plenty of natural snow throughout the winter.

Can I bring my dog?

Trained service animals are always welcome throughout the resort. Due to reasons of safety and hygiene associated with playing in and on the snow at our people park, beginning January 2019 we can no longer allow dogs, other than service animals, at Adventure Mountain. As partners in recreation with the USFS, we are not permitted as a dog park, and we thank you for understanding us working to keep Adventure Mountains’ snow content as safe and biohazard free as possible for you and your children.

We have just recently put in a new outdoor patio with picnic tables for those bringing their own food to Adventure Mountain.
