CUSTOMER APPRECIATION DAY (also known as FREE lift ticket day) will be Saturday, March 30, 2013. A Mohawk Mountain tradition, Customer Appreciation Day is just one more way we say THANKS to all of you! Bring as many friends as you can for FREE LIFT TICKETS all day - for everyone. Traditionally, Customer Appreciation Day is the last day of the season, but this year we reserve the right to reopen, because this awesome blend of cold weather and fresh snow just keeps coming..... Everyone must be wearing a lift ticket - even on FREE DAY - so be sure you stop in the lodge to get one from one of our friendly, helpful staff.  If you're not wearing a lift ticket you can't ride the lift. No exceptions. We will keep the Express Line open for your convenience.  Please use it to pre-order your rentals and schedule your lessons - just don't choose any packages that include a lift ticket.  You can get one for FREE when you arrive. We will close at 6:00 pm for the rest of the season, except for Sunday, March 24, when we close at 4:00 pm.  Night skiing has ended for the 2012-2013 season. Conditions on the mountain are outstanding!  This combination of unseasonably cold temps and new snow have created some of the best skiing and boarding we have seen in decades.  We may reopen - if the right combination of weather and customers presents itself - stay tuned.  We'll let you know what the snow gods decide...... On behalf of Mohawk Mountain Ski Area, and all of our dedicated staff, I'd like to thank you for your patronage and support this year!  Enjoy the rest of this fantastic season, and know that we love what we do, and we love that we get to do it with you!  It is our pleasure to welcome you to the mountain!
