With dreams of opening right around the corner, I couldn’t be more excited to dust off my skis and hit the slopes. I know our guests are equally excited for the possibility of this early opening!” exclaims Heidi Lutz, Director of Sales and Marketing.

If the weather complies, Blue Mountain is planning to open this Saturday, December 1st at 8:00am.
If the cold temperatures hold, and Blue Mountain can make snow each night through Saturday morning, Blue will open Saturday with three trails: Easy Out, Vista, and Come Around Park! With temperatures in the 20’s, Blue has been able to make snow on over 15 trails and will be making snow at every opportunity. If Blue is able to open this Saturday, lift tickets will be a heavily discounted rate of $15.00. “With dreams of opening right around the corner, I couldn’t be more excited to dust off my skis and hit the slopes. I know our guests are equally excited for the possibility of this early opening!” exclaims Heidi Lutz, Director of Sales and Marketing.
Blue Mountain is able to open this early in part due to ten, new fully-automated TechnoAlpin® fan guns installed during the recent off-season. In addition to these new fan guns, Blue also upgraded a number of guns in an already impressive fleet. Blue’s snowmaking crew, grooming fleet and Mother Nature are to thank for possibly getting open this early.
To get the winter fun started, Blue Mountain is running a snow dance video contest through Facebook. All participants need to do is upload their best snow dance video and each person in the winning entry will get a season pass! Visit https://www.facebook.com/SkiBlueMt for all the details.
