2023/2024 Season Closure

Dear Hesperus Season Passholders,

We regret to inform our valued Hesperus Ski Area community of some disappointing news. In preparation for the 2023-2024 ski season, Hespie encountered an unexpected and major mechanical failure in the gearbox of the Bighorn Chairlift, a vital component of our mountain operations. The gearbox is the lift’s transmission that connects the motor to the drive bullwheel and is crucial for the lift’s operation. Unfortunately, we are unable to source a compatible replacement in time to salvage this season.

Due to these unforeseen circumstances, we regret to announce the closure of Hesperus Ski Area for the 23-24 season. We understand the disappointment this brings, especially to our loyal passholders who have supported Hesperus year after year. However, we are committed to ensuring the best possible options in light of this difficult situation. 

We are offering Hesperus passholders a number of options including exchanges and account credit. Passholders, please submit this form with your name, contact information and how you’d like to proceed. Our ticket office will get back you as soon as possible. 

We recognize the significance of Hesperus Ski Area to our local ski community, and we want to express our heartfelt gratitude for your ongoing support. We understand the disappointment that this closure may bring, and we are determined to address the current challenges and welcome skiers and riders back to Hespie in the future.

Thank you for being a part of the Hesperus Ski Area community.

Warm regards,

Hesperus Ski Area
