CASPER, Wyo. — Hogadon Basin Ski Area will open on Friday, Dec. 2, the ski area announced Tuesday.

Hogadon is opening three weeks earlier than it did in 2021. The ski area opened on Dec. 22, 2021, with the season lasting until April 10, 2022.

“We’re really excited to get our skiers and snowboarders back up here,” Hogadon’s Kristin Hazelton said in a press release from the City of Casper.

On opening day this season, Hogadon will be open from 9 a.m. – 8 p.m. Dec. 2 with night skiing starting at 3 p.m. Boomerang will be the only run initially open.

“It’s our most popular and largest intermediate run, so everyone will be going down Boomerang until we get more snow,” Hazelton said.

Once there is enough snow and conditions allow, the Morning Dew run will be the next to open at Hogadon, the city said. Hogadon staff started making snow in late October.

During the season, regular hours are 9 a.m. – 4 p.m. Wednesdays-Sundays with Hogadon offering night skiing from 3-8 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays.

“Pre Season pricing will end at midnight December 1,” Hogadon’s website states.
