What's happening on the mountain
  • February:
  • The weekend storm brought lots of ice, winds are still strong
    Peak hours are weekends 11am-3pm, so beat the crowds by arriving very early to play in the snow or wait for a weekday. Roads will be closed at various max-capacity times to allow traffic to leave and keep roads clear for plows and emergency vehicles. 
  • Road status is updated by NDOT at Roads are cleared after storms. However, snow and ice are in the forecast, so make sure your vehicle is prepared for the trip. If the roads are not clear, authorities may turn improperly equipped vehicles back.
  • *Weekend Programs*: Information & cocoa at the Spring Mountains Visitor Gateway

  • Volunteer on the Mountain:
  • Hike trails, help with snow safety, meet new people, and learn about the Spring Mountains - VOLUNTEER !
  • Our volunteer opportunities offer a fun, rewarding way to give back.

  • Fire Safety
  • Campfires are ONLY permitted within a developed recreation area (picnic area or campground). Fireworks, explosives, and charcoal grills are prohibited. Visitors can use a gas grill with an on/off switch or knob. Smoking is only allowed within a vehicle or in an area cleared of all flammable debris.
