MERCERSBURG, PA – While Winter 2016-2017 is still fresh in our minds and the Spring weather is still hanging around the mountain, Whitetail Resort is busy implementing capital improvements in preparation for the 2017-2018 Winter Season. Over the next few months, more than 1.1 million dollars will go into upgrades that will enhance guest’s over-all experience while at the resort. The list of capital projects includes: upgraded inventory of new rental equipment, a full replacement of water lines on the Snow Dancer trail, a new lane shaper and tubing conveyor belt replacement, preparations for a future trail addition, as well as other various guest enhancements such as lighting and landscaping throughout the resort.

In recognizing the importance of the on snow experience, Whitetail Resort is upgrading and replacing the majority of their rental inventory. Over the summer, around 3200 pairs of skis, 3260 pairs of boots, 500 pairs of poles, 400 helmets, and 500 pairs of snowboard boots will make their way to the rental facility.

The Snow Dancer trail will see a significant improvement to it’s snowmaking coverage this coming season. During the upcoming months, crews will be replacing the entire water line system on the trail, resulting in a higher flow capacity and better reliability for the snow making system that covers this trail.

Always a guest favorite activity, Whitetail Adventure Tubing will also be experiencing some upgrades for this coming season. The guest “Magic Carpet” conveyor belt system will be replaced this summer and a new lane shaper has been purchased to help ensure fun times will be had by all. In addition, planning is underway for a new observation deck to be built in the not too distant future. “Whitetail is very pleased to have these improvement projects underway,” said Whitetail Resort President and General Manager, Don MacAskill. “We are always striving to improve our resort and our guest satisfaction.” In addition to the capital improvement projects, Whitetail Resort is busy with summer activities including operations at Whitetail Golf Resort, and Summer Adventure Camps. Whitetail also offers full service venues for Special Events such as banquets, weddings, and other large gatherings. For more information on Whitetail Resort offerings, please visit
