We want to sincerely thank you for sharing the season with us. We hope you were able to make the most out of the skiing and riding experience we provided this year. We received far less snow than is typical for us and that has had an impact on our guests, employees and management team. We sympathize with the frustration that some passholders have expressed regarding the below average snowfall. We are proud of how our team responded and their hard work in creating the best possible skiing and riding experience we could for our guests with the conditions Mother Nature provided this season.
Our approach to this unusual season has been to do everything we can to make the most out of the precious little snow we received. While many other resorts closed early or tragically weren’t able to open at all, we have been able to operate over 110 days this season. Our investment in the snow harvesting, snowmaking and grooming resources that our talented Mountain Operations team has innovated really paid dividends this season.
We thank you for making the most of the season with us. This season’s storms, although lacking the staying power and multi-foot dumps we usually enjoy, were at least timely. The November 2014 snow set us up for some preview days. A storm just before Christmas allowed us to open our terrain from HRM on up and operate all of our high-speed quads for the holiday. Snow falls just before MLK and President’s weekend gave us good conditions for those holidays. There were even a few choice powder days in the mix.
While we look forward to future seasons and a return to normal weather patterns delivering the usual abundant and generous snowfall we are accustomed to, we remain confident that regardless of how much snow we receive, our team will make the most of it for our guests.
In an expression of our confidence, we are now including with every Unlimited Season Pass purchase our “100 Day Guarantee”.
We guarantee that we will operate at least one of our high-speed quad lifts a minimum of 100 days next season. For every day we fall short of 100, a discount in that amount will be applied as a credit for the purchase of the following season’s pass. That means if the ski area operates only 80 days with at least one high-speed quad, a 20% discount will be applied to the passholders pass purchase the following season.
