MOUNT PLEASANT OF EDINBORO PREPARING TO OPEN FOR OUR 50TH WINTER SEASON
Edinboro, PA– We are pleased to announce the Mount Pleasant of Edinboro will open for our 50th season of skiing and snowboarding amidst the COVID-19 Pandemic.
Operations during the COVID-19 Pandemic will be challenging, however we have worked diligently to ensure we can open safely and offer our guests the high level of product they expect. Mount Pleasant has worked closely with the National Ski Areas Association, Pennsylvania Ski Areas Association, National Ski Patrol, and other agencies to develop a safe operations plan. We are finalizing the details of our COVID-19 Operations Plan which will outline how we intend to safely operate. Once finalized, this plan will be available on the website or at the lodge.
One of the differences this season is our emphasis on season passes for our patrons. We encourage all patrons to seriously consider a season pass this winter. With the ongoing pandemic, a season pass or a lesson program is the only way to ensure your access to the slopes. Depending on season pass sales and lesson program numbers we may limit regular lift ticket sales in order to provide a safe and enjoyable experience. In addition, we may limit Season Pass sales based on demand. We encourage you to purchase your season pass soon! Lesson program registration is now also open.
Season passes are $295 for a student 18 or under or a senior 65 or over.
An adult season pass is $350. We are not offering a group discount this season.
We are excited to also announce the completion of our existing snowmaking upgrade project. In the past 3 summers, we have tripled our available water for snowmaking to a total of 3.5 million gallons. This summer we added an additional snowmaking pump and we now can convert over 1,000 gallons of water an hour into snow. This additional snowmaking capacity will allow us to open earlier, establish a larger snow base, and stay open later in the season.
