Good times were in full force this weekend in Rogers Rass. Check out 2 videos from our trip.

Though we had a couple dry weeks, our mountain was working hard to open more alpine terrain everyday, to give our guests untracked skiing. This fresh blanket has filled everything in and made the conditions great.
