Skiing and Riding

Polar Peak is a hill with a 114' vertical drop and a southern exposure. There are plenty of natural terrain features and character. The lower portion of the hill below mid station provides good beginner and lower intermediate terrain. Above midstation are the steeps, most slopes have a 40 degree pitch. Off of the summit the Polar Run slope is our beginner run that meanders 1/4 mile to the base area.

Despite the advent of high speed quads, gondolas and magic carpets the ropetow remains the most efficient ski lift ever made. We continue to use this technology to get us up the hill year after year. Our lift, dubbed the "Summit Express", faithfully delivers us to adventure in the sun year after year.

Between runs and at the end of the day we retreat to Carinthia Lodge, our lodge/warming hut located at the base area. It is always nice to retreat to a cup of specialty hot chocolate and BBQ chicken, hamburgers, and hot dogs off the grill after burning tons of calories skiing the bowl.
