It is with tremendous sadness and sorrow that the board of directors for Yellowstone Recreations Foundation aka Sleeping Giant announces the suspension of winter operations beginning 2020-2021. Sleeping Giant will continue operating through the rest of the current ski/snowboard season. The support from the community has been remarkable, however the number of skiers and snowboarders we currently attract does not make winter operations financially feasible as we run a deficit of over $200,000 per year. The decision is agonizing but necessary.
Words cannot express our gratitude to the community and the board of directors would like to especially thank the staff over the past 10 years who have dedicated themselves to making Sleeping Giant the finest and most friendly ski hill in the country. It is through their efforts and the support of local donors, businesses, grants and volunteers that have made it possible to operate in the winter for as long as we have. The board of directors cannot hope to thank those supporters enough.
Although winter operations will be suspended, the Zipline will be unaffected and patrons will be able to Zipline through the forest beginning June 15th.
Please direct any inquiries regarding winter operations via email to: email@example.com.
Yellowstone Recreations Foundation wants to sincerely thank this community for 10 of the best years we could have asked for. Enjoy the rest of this ski/snowboard season and please take the time and thank those at the hill that have made it possible.
