Bring Sunscreen.

Skies are partly cloudy this morning, and the mercury is already creeping into the mid-50s; we’re expecting today’s high somewhere around 75F. Ski or ride this morning on 16 trails with 2 lifts spinning to get you there. The Jet Triple is slated for a 9:00 AM start, with the Taxi Quad spinning starting at 8:30 AM. Last chair today will be at 4:00 PM. Snow conditions will be very soft and surf-like, and sounds like our Grooming fleet did minimal maintenance in the night, in an effort to protect our late-season snowpack.

With just shy of 500 inches of snow for the season, we are now one of only two resorts in Vermont still spinning the lifts seven days a week. And despite warm temps and the occasional sogginess, we expect to keep skiing and riding until May 7 (maybe even longer depending on if any of us up here are still standing and can turn on the lifts.)

End of season lift tickets are currently $35 for Juniors ages 6-18 and $49 for Adults ages 19+.

TRAM AND SPRING LIFT UPDATE: The Tram has closed for the winter season. The upgrade project is underway and the Tram is scheduled to re-open this summer. Stay tuned for video updates of the $5 million project throughout the spring. As for the rest of the lifts on Tramside......they're closed too. The Stateside area of the resort will remain open seven days a week until....well, until we're tired of skiing and riding.

Looking to stay with us? Spring lodging rates are $115 for 2 people and $135 for family of 4.These are valid April 27-29 and May 5-6. Give a call to our Reservations Team at 800-451-4449 to learn more.

Lift and Trail Update - 12/15/16

By Kim, on Thu, Dec 15, 2016

I wanted to bring folks up to speed with respect to lifts, snowmaking, natural snowfall, and trail expectations for the upcoming weekend (Dec 17-18). By all counts and measures, we’ve had a terrific start to the season with respect to snowfall and snowmaking conditions. We are pressing 110” of natural snow for the season as of December 15th. Last year at this time; 23”. Snowmaking has buried the Jet and Haynes trails in a deeper/wider stretch than in years past thanks to a high number of race teams using the Haynes for early-season training. We’ve also hit all of the connector trails, the entire length of the Interstate, our learning areas over at Stateside, the Montrealer, the entire Village area along the Grammy Jay and Raccoon Run and will be setting up this evening to run along Lower Quai, the Buck Woods area and more spot guns along the Interstate to fully beef up our park set ups.

Our lift situation has been somewhat less glorious, though certainly improving. A fast melt of rime ice along our Tram cable caused an issue that required some help from the Doppelmayr/Garaventa team who are working on this as we speak. The ongoing repair work has stopped us from spinning the Bonnie Quad as well, as the lift offloads directly underneath the Tram cables and we need to make sure everyone stays safe. At this point, December 15th, the team has made significant progress on the Tram and we are close to 80% finished. We are still expecting the Tram to run somewhere during the week of December 19th, and will continue to keep you up to date as this develops. The Flyer has been inspected and will run beginning this Saturday December 17th, accessing some untouched (well, lightly skinned) Tramside terrain. We will also be bringing on our Village Double Chair this weekend accessing our ski in/ski out Village areas, and our Metro Quad which will not only connect Stateside and Tramside, but offer early-season park set ups along our Interstate Trail.

This has all been a moving target and we’ve been hesitant to share news until we felt it was solid. At this point, we feel confident in saying this weekend, we’ll offer 7 of 9 lifts for roughly 55 trails on both sides of the resort with two parks, and skiing and riding for all abilities. And Ramen on Tramside via Miso Hungry.

Thanks again, to all of you, for your patience and here’s to the best season any of us have ever had.
