Pete's Resort Report

Pete at the snow platform

If you're an early riser, you'll know Pete...whether he's raving about the new snow, giving the ticket checkers a hug or yodeling. He's out very early each morning checking the snow surface, talking to snowmakers, groomers and patrol and making his morning snow report. But look carefully, he doesn't stand around and his signature camo jacket is hard to spot! Listen to his daily "inside scoop" of the conditions at 716-699-2644.

Here's his current report...

Well the 2018-19 season has come and gone, and what a great one it was! We had a total of 190 inches of snow over the season which is about 10 inches more than our average snowfall. We made 1412 acre feet of snow, the second highest amount of manmade snow in our history. A few other firsts…we taught more first time skiers and snowboarders this year than ever and also had a record year at the Tubing Park. 

We’re looking forward to a wonderful summer with lots of action in Sky High, on the golf course, at the pools and on the mountain bike trails. We have some exciting projects and improvements for next year, starting with a small rental fleet of e-bikes for use on the Flow Trail. We’ll be adding to our Automated Snowmaking System, purchasing a new winch cat grooming tractor, improving the Mountainside Grill in the Holiday Valley Lodge, clearing out several gladed areas, and many other projects.

It's time to sign up for the most fun event of the summer, the Holiday Valley Mudslide! It's a 3.5 or 5.4 mile run on the Holiday Valley trails on June 15th with unique obstacles and plenty of MUDDY FUN! More information and a link for registration is on the Mudslide page.

So thanks for a great season and we'll see you out hiking and biking on the trails this summer. Check out this video by my friend Ashley, it's our thanks to you, our friends and customers.

If you're already a skier or snowboarder, you know how much this great sport affects your whole outlook of winter, and maybe even of your life. Why not share that excitement with your friends? Introduce a friend to skiing or snowboarding by bringing them to the Creekside Lodge for a learn-to lesson package and they'll thank you for the rest of their life!
