Mt. Ashland’s ski season kicked off Friday with a crowd.

More than 700 people hit the slopes to celebrate the start of the season, according to ski area’s General Manager Hiram Towle.

In observation of “Day Onesie,” as the nonprofit ski area calls its opening day, skiers and snowboarders wearing one-piece snowsuits paraded around the mountain and were given first chairlift honors.

All four lifts at the ski area are operating, though officials advise skiers and snowboarders to be aware of early season conditions this weekend, which includes potentially unmarked hazards.

As of Friday, the mountain had collected 34 inches of snow, including 13 inches in the past week.

Normal hours on the mountain are 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Thursdays through Mondays. Call 541-482-2897 or see mtashland.com.
