WHITETAIL RESORT SET TO OPEN THURSDAY, DECEMBER 9th

MERCERSBURG, PA – Winter is finally here, and after several months of preparation and several successful days of snowmaking, Whitetail Resort is pleased to announce that it will open its doors for skiing and snowboarding on Thursday, December 9 at 8:30 am. Whitetail Adventure Snow Tubing will open at a later date.

 The 2010-2011 season is especially significant for the Resort.  This season marks our 20th season here at Whitetail.  Our kickoff celebration will take place December 18-20 and will include special events, competitions, and promotions.  Also in preparation for the season, Whitetail Resort invested over 4 million dollars in capital improvements during the summer months.

 Heading the list of improvements is the new 1,800 foot long beginner trail, Ledgewood, which is adjacent to the existing Snow Park Trail.  This is a welcome addition to our already extensive beginner terrain and will also serve as another teaching trail for Whitetail’s Ski and Snowboard School.

 Whitetail has also improved its snowmaking capacity by adding 15 brand new Techno-Alpin fan guns to the new Ledgewood trail.  This investment continues in the tradition of Whitetail’s commitment to invest in quality snowmaking equipment which will provide Whitetail with plenty of snow this winter.

            Whitetail’s Marketplace Dining area has also been upgraded to include an expanded grill area and a new bakery which will serve fresh pastries to guests throughout the season.

A new Prinoth BR350 will also be added to the resort’s expansive fleet of snow groomers to ensure the resort’s expert trail grooming crew will have the mountain in perfect condition each morning.    

          “We are pleased with the early opening and feel very optimistic that the weather will continue to work in our favor, giving us terrific conditions for yet another great season,” stated Don MacAskill, Whitetail Resort President. 

Guests are asked to monitor Whitetail Resort’s website at skiwhitetail.com for opening day snow conditions.
