Sno Mountain (formerly Montage Mountain) is making a number of enhancements to its terrain parks this winter. The Pennsylvania ski area has purchased a Zaugg grooming machine, which will be used to groom the 22 half pipe in Loki’s Terrain Park. A second half pipe is also being added, serviced by its own magic lift.
Sno Mountain is also in the middle of cutting new trails. At press time it was unclear how many new trails would be open for the 2007-2008 winter season.
More rails and jumps will also be added to Loki’s Terrain Park. Sno Mountain plans to add banked wall rides, an A-frame wall ride, a stair case with kinked rail, a rainbox box, and more.
Olympic downhill racer Holly Flanders will provide consulting this winter to Sno Mountain’s junior racing team. Flanders participated in the 1980 and 1980 Olympic teams in Lake Placid and Sarajevo, and the 1982 and 1985 World Championship teams.
Sno Mountain is doubling the capacity at its bar by adding a new, 250-person deck with views of the slopes. Sno Mountain will also introduce a Burton Learn to Ride Center this winter. The ski areas is also adding a mile-long “ZipRider” ride, which will allow participants to zip across the slopes, terrain parks, and water park year-round.
