Vermont Ski Resorts List Upgrades for 2013-14

Montpelier, VT – From snowmaking upgrades to new lodges and hotels, Vermont skiers and riders will discover that the state’s successful 2012-13 ski season has resulted in investments and improvements from north to south this winter.

Jay Peak Resort
Jay Peak Resort will unveil $43 million in improvements for the 2013-14 winter season. Projects include a new 80, 000-square foot Stateside Hotel and base lodge with restaurants and locker rooms, a rental center, 84 new mountain cottages, and a complete revamping of the resort’s entrance. In addition to the Stateside projects, the resort debuted the Barn at the end of the summer. The 2, 000-square foot facility hosts weddings and events and is located between the first tee and ninth green of Jay Peak’ golf course.

Burke Mountain
Burke Mountain will see plenty of change over the next few years. Phase I (a $98 million investment) will see construction of two hotels modeled after the Tram Haus Lodge at Jay Peak. The new Hotel Burke will be home to 116 suites. The company recently received project approval under Act 250, Vermont’s land use law, and anticipates breaking ground this fall to begin welcoming guests in December 2014. Construction of an aquatic center, tennis facility and indoor mountain biking park will start next summer, with plans to open in summer 2015.

Smugglers’ Notch Resort
Following an investment of over $1 million in snowmaking enhancements last winter, Smugglers’ Notch Resort will incorporate 100 high efficiency tower guns into the fleet this season. The new guns will allow more snow to be made at a wider temperature range, improving early and late season coverage and in-season coverage, with greatly reduced energy costs.

Stowe Mountain Resort
Stowe Mountain Resort’s continued investment in state-of-the-art snowmaking operations includes an additional $3.4 million in new equipment and upgrades for the 2013-14 winter season, which consist of 120 HKD tower guns, four Super Pole Cat fan guns and miles of new snowmaking pipe. Add that to the $4.7 million invested last summer for a two-year total that includes 445 HKD tower guns, 150 energy efficient land guns, 20 Super Pole Cat fan guns and seven miles of new snowmaking pipe. These improvements allow Stowe to operate with greater energy efficiency, increases potential for more early season terrain, increases overall snow quality and allows mountain operations to resurface the mountain quickly.
