NEW for the 2021-2022 Winter Season:

RFID Gates  

  • We have partnered with Axess to provide direct to lift access for our ski guests this season. Season passes and reloadable day pass cards will be used to eliminate the need to go to the ticket window.
  • Electronic gates will be placed at each lift to allow access to the lift based on ticket type and time of day.

Snowmaking Improvements

  • 50 new semi-automatic HKD low energy air water snowmakers will be placed primarily on Diamond Jim and Paradice ski trails. These new snowmakers will allow us to simultaneously  cover more of the mountain than ever before and use less energy at the same time.
  • 4 automated new tower mounted Techno Alpin fan style snowmakers will also be added to the arsenal this winter. These snowmakers will be placed on the Southern Comfort trail.
  • 2 new snowmaking pumps will be added to the heart of the snowmaking system to increase water pressure and give us more flexibility on where we can make snow.          

Expanded Beginner Terrain

  • New 650’ SunKid conveyor lift will be replacing the J-Bar (last original lift). The new lift will service newly created beginner terrain for skiers and riders to enjoy.
  • This area will be regraded for the new lift along with snowmaking improvements.
  • New LED lighting in this area and others will improve the nighttime experience and help reduce our carbon footprint.           

New Owners Lounge

  • We are remodeling the 3rd floor of the ski lodge. This renovated space will be dedicated to our owners to relax in and enjoy.
  • Fully renovated bathrooms, TV’s, fireplace, windows, new furniture throughout and service bar will be in place for owner’s enjoyment.     

Patrol Room

  • The ski patrol room is also undergoing a long-awaited full makeover with expanded storage and a new locker room in the lower level of the lodge.   

Lodge Exterior

  • New improved walkway to Base Camp and lower level of the lodge.
  • New siding on the General Store side of the lodge.

Mid Mountain Grill

  • Adding 3 permanent rest rooms to Mid Mountain Grill.
  • Expanded menu options

Ski Trail Map 2022

We are excited to announce major terrain expansion in the coming years!

New for 21-22 season is a new conveyor lift and expanded beginner terrain and opening new “most difficult” terrain under the existing lift 5 lift line.

2022 is where the real excitement begins with the addition of two new trails, a new “More Difficult” trail and a new “Most Difficult” trail with both being served by lift 6.

The 2023 season will see the installation of a new detachable quad lift to replace the existing quad lift 6 to the peak and a new double black diamond “Most Difficult” trail under the lift.

Exciting as that is, we are still not done yet with the summer of '24 seeing two additional “More Difficult” trails, with one connecting Paradice to Mass Transit and another new trail off of lift 5.
