Are you ready for the 2019/2020 SNOWPLAY Season to kick off?! We most certainly are!

A Winter Weather Warning has been issued starting this afternoon, which is predicted to bring snow showers to the higher elevations of the Sierra Nevada. (

Will this be enough to open the door at Leland Snowplay? Not yet. But it’s a start and thinks are looking promising. The weather is turning colder, and we are ready to flip the switches on the snow guns and give Mother Nature a hand in blanketing the hill in white!

Finally, preparations are in the works so we are 100% in operation the moment Mother Nature allows. We encourage you to make preparations now for your 2019/2020 SNOWPLAY Adventure! Please take the time to review our posted calendar. Prices, dates of operation, and other useful information can be found at our website at For answer to our most common questions, we also invite you to visit the following FAQ Page at Please, please, please, take the time to visit those sites when planning your trip in order to avoid problems or misunderstandings.

We can't wait for winter!!🛷☃️


Despite the hot temperatures this week, for many of you summer is over, as you send the kids back to school, and with Labor Day less than a week away. Soon it will be Autumn... Halloween... Thanksgiving... ... ... Snowplay!

Running a seasonal business means lots of work in the "off season", to not only be ready for the tens-of-thousands of guests we look forward to every year, but to offer an even better product "next year". Over the years that has meant investing in surface lifts, the magic carper, snow making, better inner tubes, remodels to the lodge, better heavy equipment, and continued investment into safety. This year will be no different.

It may seem like a long way out, but we know better, and we will be hard at work until that first snowflake falls. For now, enjoy the last remaining day of the official summer, have a great autumn, and remember to spend at least one of your winter vacation days at Leland Snowplay!

After a wild and wonderful season in the snow, the Management of Leland Snowplay has come to the decision that April 21, 2019 will be our final day for the 2018/2019 Snowplay Season!

This is not an easy decision to make. The fact is we are going to end this season with more snow on the hill than we had at any point during our predictable hectic Christmas Break. However, its April; the days are getting very long, the temperatures are climbing, and people’s focus has clearly shifted from snowplay to summer activities. If it were possible to be in operation year-round, we would; but we just can’t complete with the looming promise of boating, swimming, camping, picnics, and summer sports.

The good news is you have 10 more days, and two more weekends, to get up here. You won’t be disappointed. We still have over 6 feet of snow on the hill, and the crowds we had when we had very little snow earlier in the season are virtually non-existent. The weather forecast shows mostly clear and sunny skies, with no major weather systems before we close.

The Management and Staff of Leland Snowplay want to thank everyone who has visited us this season. The snow season started off rather slow, but those February Storms gave so many of you an awesome second half to the season. We hope everyone got their chance to enjoy the snow! If not, we earnestly invite you to make the trip to see us one lasts time this season. THANK YOU!
