MERCERSBURG, PA – After months of preparation and anticipation, Whitetail Resort is excited to announce that it will open its doors for skiing and snowboarding on Friday, December 28 at 8:30 am.  The resort anticipates opening with the beginner trails Velvet, Northern Lights, Almost Home, and Sidewinder.  More terrain is expected to open soon.  Whitetail Adventure Snow Tubing will open during the weekend.

 The 2012-2013 season promises to be another great season at the resort.  Whitetail staff have been working diligently in planning a terrific season filled with events, competitions, and promotions for Whitetail Guests.  Also in preparation for the winter season, Whitetail Resort has made significant snowmaking upgrades as well as other improvements across the resort.

Heading the list of improvements is the addition of new Techno-Alpin fan guns at the bottom of the Sidewinder trail.  The snowmaking upgrades also include the addition of brand new nozzles on the Wizzard fan guns at the resort.  This allows more increased efficiency and capacity of Whitetail Resort’s snowmaking operation.  Also new at the resort are the addition of 35 new and larger seasonal lockers as well as the addition of 1,190 new junior Elan skis and bindings and Dalbello boots for the rental department.

The long range forecasts for January, February, and March look very favorable for a cold and wintry season.  “The month of December has been milder than we would have liked to see, but now that cold weather has arrived, our state of the art snowmaking system will allow us to open our terrain quickly and to put down a lot of snow.  There is a lot of winter remaining, and we plan to be open for skiing and snowboarding well into late March,” stated Don MacAskill, Whitetail Resort President. 

Guests are asked to monitor Whitetail Resort’s website at skiwhitetail.com for opening day details and information.
