Two more lifts will open at Winter Park Resort this weekend.

The resort announced on Friday plans to open Challenger Chair and Sleeper at 10 a.m Saturday, thanks in part to 5 inches of snow in the last 24 hours. The resort is also working to open new terrain for the weekend.

Last week, Winter Park opened the Mary Jane territory and four other lifts. As of Friday, the resort has 13 of 23 lifts running with 53 of 166 trails open and 75 inches of snow for the season.

According to, Friday and Saturday will be mostly sunny with temperatures in the upper 20s to low 30s. A storm is supposed to bring between 4-8 inches of snow Saturday night to Monday afternoon.

Sunday could bring thicker snow with warmer temperatures and forecasters say the softest and deepest snow will be found Monday morning.
