Hickory will be opening this Saturday, December 21, 2013 for a special bonus day of pre-Christmas skiing! And although it's still a few days before Christmas, Santa is coming early in the North Country with FREE (yes, FREE) lift tickets for all children ages 12 and under, with the purchase of an adult lift ticket. Tickets will be $25 for adults. We plan on opening the lower mountain, served by the T-Bar and Poma 1 to the midstation on an 8-10" base of natural snow.
In light of the warmer temperatures forecasted for Sunday, ski patrol will evaluate snow conditions on Saturday evening and make a determination as to Sunday operations.

A group of Hickory faithful are working to form a non-profit with the focus of running recreation and education programs with Hickory as their backyard. They're currently looking to develop a Board of Directors and begin the process of forming the organization with a goal of providing programs for kids this winter. If you'd like to become involved on any level, please contact us at
