Open Today

We’re more than doubling our trail count today bringing the grand total to 5 thanks to Mother Nature and our hard working Snow Making staff. Beginner terrain like The Boulevard and Chalet Meadows are now open with lift access from the newly opened Taxi Quad. All of the open trails are groomed and ready for early season turns.

The Jet, as well as the Taxi Quad, will open to the public this Saturday & Sunday from 8:30a-4:00p; $39 for Adults, $25 for Juniors.

Once last chair hits at 4:00p on Sunday the 23rd, we’ll take a brief hiatus to prepare for Thanksgiving, and kick-off 7 day operations starting Friday, 11/28.

Join us and NEKCA Food Shelf in assisting those in need.  Bring a bag of canned goods (bag is considered 3 or more items) to Stateside Ticket Booth on Saturday, 11/29 and you'll receive a complimentary pass to the Pump House Indoor Waterpark.

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.
