I LOVE the fall, it happens to be my second favorite season. (Behind winter, of course.) One of the best parts of the fall is my drive to and from the resort each day. The combination of the crisp air and the gorgeous foliage surrounding the resort is astounding. Aside from the nature aspect of fall, my second favorite thing about this season is the anticipation and excitement it brings about the coming winter months. This is the time where I get to start talking about winter to the community and to our guests. We also start to see our seasonal team members returning, people who I might not have seen for several months. It’s almost like a fun family reunion!
You might be wondering what’s new at the resort this season. Well.. you’ve got questions, and I’ve got answers. We are opening a new coffee, breakfast, snack shop that will be called Bear Bites! Bear Bites will be open from 7am to 9pm daily and is located adjacent to the Mountain Eatery. Stop in for a latte, coffee, breakfast burrito or dessert waffle!
On the mountain, we continue to upgrade our snowmaking system. We installed 33 new automated snowguns. Automated guns allow more precise snowmaking and create a better product. These particular guns are designed to work better in marginal weather conditions. With the addition of these automated guns, this puts our automatic gun count at about 75%.
On another note, don’t forget that early bird season pass rates expire on October 31, that’s just 13 days! These are the best pass prices of the year, make sure you don’t miss out.
