It's hard not to be impatient for winter while we wait for Mother Nature to turn down the thermostat. But rather than making your fast descent into a Netflix-bingeing couch potato, you can revel in the fact that opening day is on the horizon and that there is plenty to do to get ready for ski season. Snag a New England Pass, book your winter getaway, dust off your skis or board and give them a tune, prep your feet by wearing your boots for at least 5 hours per day, and start doing those squats and lunges. You'll thank us later.
But let's not wish autumn away. The foliage is peaking in the Mahoosuc Range and it's a beautiful time of year to enjoy a hike in the region or sip a cold beer that doesn't taste like pumpkin pie. You can enjoy fall knowing that our snowmakers are at-the-ready to crank the guns once we get sustained cold temperatures. This year, our opening plan is to blow snow top-to-bottom on Aurora Peak, accessed by the Chondola in South Ridge. It might not be here yet, but it's definitely coming.
Think cold thoughts,
** Spruce Peak Chairlift Update **
This summer, we announced plans to install a new three-person chairlift on Spruce Peak. At that time, we were still waiting on insurance, financing, and engineering plans. As it stands we currently have the engineering plans in-hand but are still waiting on the other pieces to fall into place. As such, we're being forced to postpone construction until after this winter. The silver lining is that Spruce Peak terrain will still open for skiing and riding this winter. To help answer any questions we've created a page dedicated to more information on the Spruce Peak Triple complete with FAQs.
