Sunshine Opens Goat's Eye Mountain

December 19, 2013
by Sunshine Village Ski Resort

Sunshine Village Ski Resort opened Goat’s Eye Express at noon today, giving skiers and riders access to all 12 lifts for the 2013-2014 season.
Known for its advanced terrain and exceptional intermediate groomed runs, the opening of Goat’s Eye Mountain will offer guests the ability to experience all three mountains at the world class resort.
“This finalizes the opening of all our lifts and terrain for this ski season,” begins Dave Riley, Chief Operating Officer at Sunshine Village Ski Resort. “An abundance of steady snowfalls throughout the week have enabled us to open the mountain a day earlier than anticipated.”
Week-long snow storms have continued to blanket Sunshine Village in champagne powder snow, resulting in exceptional conditions across the resort. More than two feet have fallen on the resort this past week, providing a current snow pack of  119 cm (47 in).
“Goat’s Eye offers such an expansive variety of terrain and it really makes Sunshine a complete experience,” finishes Riley.
