Granite Peak still open on the first day of spring

Posted:

RIB MOUNTAIN (WAOW) -- It's the first official day of spring but that isn't slowing down winter fun at Granite Peak.

The ski hill will be open daily until April 5th. Then it will be open on weekends until May, weather permitting.

Right now skiers and snowboarders can use 90 percent of the trails.

Granite Peak officials say conditions are still good.

"Conditions are softer. It's not as cold out so you don't have to worry about bundling up or getting frost bite," said Chris Pingel, the snow sports education director.

Ski officials say they've had around 100,000 people hit the slopes this season.
