Re-open on 11/28

Snow is once again falling on the mountain, as we dust off the Turkey Fryer and prepare for the annual Thanksgiving feast. At the moment, we’re seeing flurries, but our Mountain Forecaster is calling for measurable accumulation on the ground by tomorrow morning; over half a foot’s worth of natural.

The icing on the cake (or gravy on the stuffing, in this case) is that temps are moving back into our favor, giving our Snowmakers the green light to blow snow. Right now they’re running guns on the Goat run, in effort to have the Green Mountain Flyer ready to load by Saturday morning. Be sure to check back with us Friday for a definitive opening time.

We’re looking to kick-off seven-day operations starting this Friday, with seven trails available for skiing & riding, and serviced by four lifts scheduled to spin. First chair for Lower Mountain (Metro & Taxi Quads, along with Stateside Moving Carpet) is planned for 8:30a, with the Jet Triple slated to follow at 9:00a. As always, last chair for all lifts is at 4:00p.

Lift tickets are priced at $49 for adults (ages 19+) and $39 for juniors (ages 6-18).

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.
