Official Announcement- Thursday, Feb. 28th, 2019:

“Due to massive amounts of new snow with increasing density and current extreme avalanche warning in effect, Soldier Mountain be closed Thursday (Feb. 28) as we continue digging out and getting the Mountain safe for skiing Friday through Sunday (Mar 1 – 3). We still have another foot of snow on the way through Thursday, but Friday is shaping up to be mostly sunny and 27 degrees. Thanks to our employees who have not only been digging themselves out, but also helping us try to stay ahead of this massive storm.  Sorry for any inconvenience, we strive to provide a safe fun day of skiing every day we are open and tomorrow will not be one of those days.”
