It looks like Rain so... Fall Fest is moving indoors!!
Despite the forecasted weather, Maple Ski Ridge’s 16th Annual Fall Fest tradition will continue this weekend. Arrangements have been made to move all our vendors, food, and other activities into the lodge or under large tents. We have quite an excellent lineup of craft vendors and boutique food items along with some fun silent auction prizes. Our Rental Shop will be open for its first day of Seasonal Rentals and our Maple Ski Ridge booth will be available to answer questions about registration for ski/snowboard lessons and season passes. Fall Fest attendees receive an additional $10 discount off their seasonal rentals and can pick up a coupon for $10 off the purchase of their season passes or lessons. Weather-dependent activities such as chair lift rides, hay rides, and the kid's zone bounce houses will not go forward if it is raining for the safety of our staff and our customers. The antique car show has been rescheduled for a later date.
Featuring countless activities for all ages,
Maple Ski Ridge is proud to be holding our 16th Annual Fall Festival!
