Blue Mountain Resort resumes snowmaking
After a long stretch of help from Mother Nature, Blue Mountain Resort has resumed snowmaking efforts on the mountain as of this past Monday.
Blue Mountain has received 43 inches of natural snowfall since December, but due to Mother Nature, snow-making had taken a hiatus from Jan. 31 to Feb. 25.
Current snow-making efforts began this past Monday night, and will continue through this Monday.
There is no set end date to ski season just yet, as Blue Mountain has continued to see steady skiing, snowboarding, snow tubing, and lesson attendance through the beginning of this month.
As long as outdoor enthusiasts continue to visit, and temperatures cooperate, the mountain will remain open.
Typically, Blue Mountain aims to open on Black Friday for ski season. This year, opening day was delayed until Dec. 11 due to unseasonal temperatures for snow-making.
Thus far, the mountain has been open 83 days. The longest season on record was the 2013/2014 ski season when the mountain was open for 121 days.
2021/2022 Season Passes are on sale now and can be used anytime the remainder of this season, and all of next season for $599.
Looking ahead to next season, Blue Mountain plans to keep many of the same COVID restrictions in place. This includes limiting ticket and Season Pass sales, touchless ticketing, increased housekeeping efforts and more.
