Casper has its own ski area, and you can get there in 20 minutes from anywhere in town. And forget about lift lines -- they're virtually non-existent at our ski area, so you get the most out of your snow adventure without freezing in a lift line. Hogadon offers runs for skiers and snowboarders of all levels, from beginners to experts. Lessons are available for both skiers and snowboarders.

Hogadon is located 11 miles south on Casper Mountain and only twenty minutes away from downtown Casper. This secret gem is family friendly and affordable! Rental equipment is available for both skiers and snowboarders and enjoy lunch at the Cafeteria at Hogadon.
