Holiday Valley Lift Operators
They're the faces you see most out on the hill and the ones that greet you first thing in the morning. They're the faces that represent Holiday Valley when you're out skiing all day and making sure you have a reason to smile. We love our lifties and appreciate all they do throughout the day and night to make sure our guests are safe and have a great time.
Holiday Valley Snowmaking
Night Shift Snowmaking Supervisor, Dan Aldrich gives us the run down on how we prepare and sustain through rain and warmer temperatures throughout the season. Just because there's no snow in your backyard, doesn't mean we don't have any! In fact, we have plenty!
"One of the bigger misconceptions we have is if there's no snow in our backyard, there's no snow up here. That's not really the case." - HV Snowmaker Dan Aldrich
Take an inside look at how our snowmakers use both SNOWsat - a snow depth measuring system we're using - and an unmatched HKD Automated Snowmaking System to create and maintain a consistent snow surface.
Even through the multiple warm weather cycles we've seen this winter, our snowmakers and snowmaking system have answered the call. Folks, there's lots of snow up here. And for that, please #thankasnowmaker
