Mount Snow Makeover
Mount Snow in Vermont has become known as a leader in snow skiing facilities and, together with the other three faces of Carinthia Mountain, namely the Main Face, Sunbrook and the North Face, skiers and snowboarding enthusiasts have been flocking to this resort for years, to enjoy their extended skiing seasons, which are ensured by the resorts’ high tech fan guns. Now, due to the growing number of freestyle skiers, Mount Snow has been working on getting the mountain face of Carinthia Mountain ready, to become one large ninety five acre freestyle terrain park.
The changes to the mountain face mean that there will be twelve terrain parks available to skiers, which will have a total of a hundred and twenty five features. Visitors to Mount Snow will now be able to choose from a beginners’ learning park, snowskate playground, tree-skiing area, super pipe, hiking park, mini park, all-natural park, skate ramp, big air site and a wonderful base lodge that has been renovated. The base lodge now boasts seating at all the windows to look out over the mountain face and various terrain parks, flat screen television sets, internet access, outdoor fire pits and cozy lounges. A chairlift and quad will ensure that skiers have easy access to the terrain parks and facilities.
Most of the trails that can be enjoyed on the Carinthia Mountain are perpetually blanketed in perfect snow, thanks to the two hundred and fifty one fan guns that line the trails. Mount Snow, with all the latest high tech equipment, now has more fan guns than can be found at any other skiing destination in North America, in the bid to move with the times and offer visitors and avid winter sport enthusiasts everything they might need. And at the moment, the resort is focusing on freestyle skiers, as it is the fastest growing category in the industry.
The new and improved Mount Snow will be ready for skiing and snowboarding enthusiasts in the 2008-2009 season. By creating spectacular facilities, superior terrain parks and skiing activities for the entire family to enjoy, will not only smooth out traffic on the slopes but ensure that everyone who visits Mount Snow, will walk away with thrilling and exciting memories. From ski schools, to spas, to retail shops, great accommodation and dining establishments, Mount Snow has everything any skier would want in a skiing destination.
