Mt. Van Hoevenberg Opening Saturday, Nov. 17
November 9, 2018

SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 17  |  Mt. Van Hoevenberg Opening Weekend—Grab and wax your skis 'cause Mt. Van Hoevenberg Cross Country Ski Center is set to open for the 2018/19 Season on Saturday, November 17, weather and conditions permitting of course. The ski center's earliest-ever planned opening comes after members of the US Para-Nordic ski team held their week-long training camp at Van Ho. Although Mother Nature has brought more rain than snow recently, Van Ho is able to open in part due to the TechnoAlpin Snowfactory.

Did you know—Mt. Van Ho is the only location in North America to have the machine, capable of making snow with temps as high as 60 degrees? Pretty awesome stuff!
