The ski area was open through the 2000-2001 ski season. The single chair lift was damaged by avalanche during a large storm during February 11-13, 2001, which left approximately 7 feet of snow. In December 2001, a mysterious fire destroyed the chairlift base area (pictures of the Snowcrest fire damage) and the resort has been closed since the 2001-2002 season. The parent owner of the resort, Angeles Crest Resorts, collected insurance on both events but did not begin reconstruction. The ski area's closure may have been related to the fire or other economic reasons.
