PR: 11-2008 Snow's Up

Snow’s Up!
White Haven, PA-November 2008 - November 20, 2008

With plunging temperatures across Pennsylvania, there’s been a blizzard of snowmaking activity at Winter Sports resorts across the state.

It all adds up to the earliest start for a ski and snowboarding season in memory.

Western Pennsylvania’s premier winter getaway, Seven Springs Mountain Resort opens it’s slopes and trails Friday, November 21st. Skiers and riders will get a preview of the season’s enhancements from Spa to dining. Five runs will be open for skiers and surfers with two lifts operating to all open terrain.

In the east, Bear Creek Mountain, near Allentown, gets an early lift from dropping temperatures. Slopes open this weekend and the snow continues to blow.

In the Poconos, Big Boulder will open Friday, November 21st. Bring a new, unopened toy valued at $10 or more or 10 non-perishable food items and receive a FREE snowpass. Otherwise, the snowpass is $25.  Camelback Mountain will also launch their first skiers and riders this weekend. Incredible snowmaking weather has put the region weeks ahead of winter.

Openings planned for Thanksgiving weekend include Blue Mountain and Shawnee Mountain in the Poconos and Blue Knob and Hidden Valley in the west.

Sno Mountain and Ski Sawmill have planned openings by December 5th, followed by Ski Denton and Ski Big Bear by December 6th.

Because we know Mom Nature can be fickle, before dashing off, check out the openings at the Pennsylvania Ski Areas Association web site: www.skipa.com or call the resorts, directly.

This weekend and next look for deeply discounted lift tickets. Then, take advantage of bragging rights, to hitting the Pennsylvania slopes before Thanksgiving.
