Lee Canyon closes for the 2016-17 winter season on Sunday.

The resort said it had its second consecutive record-setting year in terms of skier visits. The resort attributes the increase to snow conditions, recent improvements to the area, and the local community’s increased interest in skiing and snowboarding.

Closing day festivities include giveaways, live music by Tommy Rocker, and the annual pond skim competition that’s open to skiers and boarders of all ages.

Entrants in the pond skim contest are judged on costumes, splash, and crowd reaction. Winners will be awarded prizes during a ceremony on the patio at 3 p.m.

Lifts are open from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Building on the success of its Feel Good Friday campaign benefiting the High Fives Foundation, Lee Canyon’s daily lift tickets are $25 through Sunday. Lee Canyon will make a $5 donation per lift ticket sold to the nonprofit that offers financial assistance to injured mountain sport athletes. Lift tickets can be purchased online or at the base lodge.

The resort is currently hosting a sale on their 2017/18 season passes. Skiers and snowboarders can take advantage of the best prices on passes during the spring sale that goes on from now through Memorial Day.
Adult All Access, Battle Born, and Weekday Warrior season passes are $399, $249, and $199 respectively.

Weather permitting Lee Canyon will open for its summer season on May 26.
