MERCERSBURG, PA – With a fantastic 100 day Winter season just completed, Whitetail Resort is already busy implementing capital improvements in preparation for the 2018-2019 Winter Season. Over the next few months, more than 1.6 million dollars will go into upgrades that will enhance the guests’ over-all experience while at the resort. The list of capital projects includes: upgraded fan guns on Limelight trail, an upgraded inventory of new Burton Snowboards, a new Snowtubing plaza area and building, a Prinoth Winchcat Groomer, as well as other various guest enhancements such as upgraded parking lot lighting and enhanced digital signage.
The Limelight trail will see a significant improvement to its snowmaking coverage this coming season. During the upcoming months, crews will be replacing 16 of this trail’s fan guns with brand new high output TechnoA0lpin fan guns, resulting in an increased coverage and better reliability for the snow making system that covers this trail.
In continuing our quest for providing the best possible on-snow experience for our guests, Whitetail Resort is upgrading and replacing over 200 of our rental snowboards with new Burton boards. These new boards will complement the significant rental ski inventory upgrade from last year and allow us to continue to provide the best possible rental equipment for our guests this upcoming season.
Always a guest favorite activity, Whitetail Adventure Tubing will also be experiencing a major upgrade for this coming season. This summer, our mountain operations crew will be busy completely reworking and building a new courtyard for the snow tubing area. This courtyard will feature a covered pavilion and fireplace with seating for observation of the snow tubing hill.
Another highlight is the permanent addition of a new Prinoth Winchcat Groomer to our fleet of tools to keep our snow in tip top condition for our guests. This new winchcat will allow for increased grooming capabilities on our steeper terrain like our Bold Decision, Drop In, and Exhibition trails.
“As part of our ongoing commitment to our guests, we’re proud to be able to continue our resort upgrades, that will in turn, better each “on snow” experience.” said Whitetail Resort President and General Manager, Don MacAskill. 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.
