The Owners and Management of Leland Snowplay would like to extend a heartfelt THANK YOU to every guest that joined us this season on this hill. The early season heatwave and drought conditions took a toll on Sierra Winter Recreation, but we were able to power through late in the season and make some great snowplay memories with you.
Sadly, after careful analysis of the impact of this last warm spring storm, and future weather trends, we are forced to call it season. Honestly, we are closing at about the same time we traditionally do (early to mid-April); but due to the weather early in the season, it feels like we are just getting started. Thankfully, we had an awesome 6 week stretch to end this season, and we enjoyed every smiling face that took advantage of the hard work our staff put in every day. But, when it comes to winter recreation, Mother Nature gets the final say on when we open, the conditions on the hill, the weather, and when we close. It was a up-and-down 66-day season, and we just hope that you got to spend some time with us on one of those spectacular snow days this season.
As we close the doors on another season, we thank every dedicated employee and every loyal customer. We will spend the off-season regrouping and make preparations for next season. We earnestly hope Mother Nature has an epic winter wonderland in store for the 2018/2019 Winter Snowplay Season. For over a quarter century we strived every day to make sure Leland Snowplay remains a wonderful place to build lasting family memories in the snow. Rest assured, despite any ups and downs beyond our control, that remains our commitment. Until we see you again on the hill, please, have a fun and safe summer!!
