Bellaire, Mich. – Shanty Creek Resorts (SCR) will open Schuss Mountain on Friday, November 29.
“We’re very excited, to say the least,” says Chris Hale, vice president of Shanty Creek. “With snow still falling and snowmaking temps expected to remain throughout the week, it’s too early to say how many runs we’ll open with but one thing is for sure: this is the earliest opening we’ve had in many years.”
The resort plans to open Friday, instead of Thanksgiving Day, to allow families the day to spend together, which includes members of the SCR staff. “We consciously made that decision even though other resorts are planning to open on Thursday. But for us, Friday feels right.” says Hale.
To commemorate the early opening and the holiday weekend, Shanty Creek will be offering kids 8 and under FREE lift tickets and free rentals. There will also be instructors available to teach kids to ski or ride.
Schuss Mountain will be open Friday through Sunday from 9 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. daily, and will re-open the following weekend (details TBD).
