Although the lack of natural snowfall may not make it seem as such, officials of Wyoming’s Sleeping Giant Ski Area are calling this season’s reopening a huge success. It’s been five years since this quaint area has been operational, and this December, it reopened its gates with new infrastructure, lifts, and snowmaking equipment.
Executive Director Hamilton Bryan claimed that the excellent new snowmaking equipment helped provide great powder conditions. The area only received about 42 inches of natural snowfall (usually it gets between 250 and 300), and this meant it opened three weeks later than anticipated and closed three weeks early.
Despite that, the new terrain was popular with skiers and snowboarders, and, all things considered, Bryan was happy with how this season went. He expects it to get even better next year.
Welcome back Sleeping Giant!
