Winter is coming!
We are only about 65 days away from the beginning of the upcoming skiing and riding season at Mount Snow. We couldn’t be more excited. We will enjoy Autumn first but lets go over some of the major changes happening at Mount Snow.
1. The New Carinthia Base Lodge
The new, state-of-the-art lodge will include the amenities that today’s skiers and riders expect from a high-end ski resort. These include a sit-down restaurant, two bars, a multi-station cafeteria, retail offerings, rental facilities, a private lesson desk and an outdoor seating deck complete with fireplace and bar. The $22 million project, which was started in the summer of 2017, is currently on track to open when Mount Snow opens in November. – Peak Resorts Press Release
2. Early season snowmaking
Mount Snow will begin snowmaking operations as soon as cold weather permits. Their new snowmaking system, finished in 2017 is now the most powerful system in the Northeast, thanks to $30 million in upgrades as part of the recently completed West Lake Water Project. Mount Snow had the most open terrain with quality runs through mid December last year. Get your discounted Mount Snow lift tickets here.
3. Huge storms and snow totals last year
We know that you can’t compare one season to a next in New england but with 200″ last year it’s hard not to get excited when you think back of some of the huge storms we received in 17/18. Parts of Vermont’s Bennington and Windham Counties had the bragging rights following a nor’easter, after they tallied the most snow of any place in New England. Areas measured roughly three feet of snow though portions had snow that was more than 40 inches deep. It piled up on roofs, buried vehicles, and challenged snowblowers and mountain staff.
4. Opening day predictions
My opening day prediction is November 18th. You heard it here first!
