Good things to come.

You know good things are on the way when our Mountain Forecaster calls for “periods of snow daily” starting today through the rest of this week. The 3-5” that settled last night and today is just a taste compared to the foot of snow forecasted to land between now and Thursday. If that wasn’t enough to sway your weekend plans, more snow is forecasted to land Friday into next week.

More Snowy news:  

Snowmakers are back at it tonight and will run late afternoon through morning every day this week resurfacing trails and deepening base depths for the upcoming holiday weeks.  As a rule, we try not and run on open trails while guests are skiing and riding, and we don’t want to close trails given the current counts.  If the snow comes in as forecasted, expect a significant increase in counts as we get into the holiday week.  Stay tuned for more info daily as trail counts expand.

Today, ski or ride on 31 trails serviced by 8 lifts scheduled to spin. Upper Mountain lifts including, the Jet Triple, the Bonaventure Quad, and Vermont’s only Aerial Tramway, are slated to spin at 9:00 AM. Lower mountain lifts, including the Taxi Quad, Metro Quad, Stateside Moving Carpet, Tramside Moving Carpet, and Village Double are scheduled to spin at 8:30AM. As always, last chair for all lifts is at 4:00PM.

Lift tickets for adults (19+) are $79 and kids 6-18 are $62. Tickets can be purchased at both Stateside and Tramside Customer Service Locations.

Splicing Cables With Bonnie

By Andrew, on Wed, Nov 27, 2013

View/Hide Photos

It's no secret that nothing lasts forever (except the Grateful Dead's legacy), and time wears away even the most well-built structures. The key to consitent quality with any equipment requires continued service and care. While providing patrons with uphill access, the constant weight and perpetual rotations cause our chairlift cables to slowly stretch over time.  Fixed grip chairlifts like our Jet Triple, Taxi Quad and Bonaventure Chair can run for several decades without requiring any cable splicing, core replacement and tightening. Our cable service providers, Dale R. Walters' Mountain Wire Rope Service specialize in wire rope splicing, repairs and inspections. Certified throughout the U.S., Walters, and his son J.T. service about 135 different areas across the East and Midwest. But wire rope techs are a dying breed, in a trade that requires several thousands of miles on the road and many consecutive months away from home, on top of a physically demanding regime exposed to the elements. With the help of our Mountain Ops. crew, Walters' Mountain Rope Service removed a portion of the Bonaventure cable's nylon core and replaced it with a tight, new section that will service our skiers and riders for years to come.
