Ready to hit the slopes? Local ski resorts are open!

PENINSULA, Ohio -- Attention all skiers and snow adventurers: Your local ski resorts are open for business!

Boston and Alpine Valley Ski Resorts announced last Saturday morning that they had stockpiled enough snow to open for the 2017-2018 season.

"Our operation is heavily dependent on the weather. Mother Nature blessed us with amazing early season weather and our crew has been proactive getting our resorts ready for the guests," General Manager Josh Boyd said in a news release.

Boston Mills Brandywine and Alpine Valley Ski Resorts are a trio of sister Northeast Ohio ski destinations. Between the three resorts, there are 29 trails of various skill, two snow tubing parks, five terrain parks, and four beginner areas, a news release described.

Boston Mills and Alpine Valley opened last weekend; Brandywine opened Friday.

In addition to skiing and snowboarding, Brandywine offers snow tubing for the whole family at Polar Blast Tubing. Click here for hours and days of operation. Also, see the following video for our preview of the snow tubing experience!
