Open Skiing (starting 12/19), Parking and No Sledding

While we are so happy the narrow band of snow made its way to Madison, we are not open for open Alpine Skiing until Saturday, December 19th at 12:30 pm. Trail conditions and open ski hours are posted on this page.  Hill 1 is prepared for lessons only this week.  Nordic trails have been groomed with early season conditions.  Snowmaking will begin this evening, 12/13 and continue through Wednesday, weather permitting.

Please note, no vehicles except those with all wheel/4WD are allowed to drive to the base of the hill.  Please park in the West Chalet parking lot and walk down the far west side of the hill.

Sledding is not permitted at Blackhawk. We are experiencing higher than normal early season non-member adventure seekers. Our club relies heavily on the honor system. If you ever see anyone on a sled, member or not, please kindly remind them that sledding of any kind is not allowed at Blackhawk and let someone know.  Any suspicious or dangerous behavior may also be reported to the county sheriff.
