New Lodge Under Construction
Construction is currently underway on a new 3,000 sq. ft. lodge located at the base of Competition Slope, which will feature beautiful slope side views. The lodge will add additional indoor seating and restrooms to the resort, while accommodating carry-in-food and space for racing program activities. Skiers can also look forward to heated outdoor patio seating and a race timing and scoring room.
Increased Snowmaking Capacity
Snow Trails continues to invest in its snowmaking capacity. This year a fifth water pump has been added to increase the total max snowmaking water flow to 5,500 GPM. And, for the first time, there are now three SMI Tower Mounted Snow Guns in the Cross-Over Trails, which will help in opening trails faster, as well as in recovery after warm-ups. An SMI Super Pole Cat has also been added to the Alpine Terrain Park and another to the base area of the Rustler Trail. They’ve already started making snow for the 2021/2022 season!
Enhanced Glow Tubing Experience
Glow Tubers will enjoy an enhanced light experience this season with the addition of state-of-the-art lighting upgrades, which provide even greater animation timing and control of the brilliant flash colors. Gravel has also been added on the run to help decelerate the speed of tubers in the Finish Area and prevent soggy conditions.
Skiers will now find 22 LED tower lights on the Alpine Lift and in the Beginners Area. There are also upgraded LED tower lights on the Mt. Mansfield Triple Chairlift for Competition Slope and Mt. Mansfield Slope.
Ski Lodge Improvements
The ski lodge features remodeled women’s restrooms this season. And diners will enjoy even greater efficiency with improvements made to the Last Run Deli Kitchen. Finally, five additional radiant heaters have been added to the Ski Lodge Deck.
Ski Shop Remodel
The ski shop has undergone an interior remodel and features new lighting and windows.
