Author thumbnail By M. Scott Smith, DCSki Editor

On the heels of a successful winter season, Pennsylvania’s Whitetail Ski Resort is spending $1.4 million in capital improvements this summer.

The rope tow in Whitetail’s learning area is being replaced by a new Magic Carpet Lift. Located next to the Kids Mountain Camp facility, the Magic Carpet will transport beginning skiers and boarders to the top of First Tracks without the stress of conventional lift systems. A new incubator terrain park is also being added for those wishing to learn the basic elements of terrain park riding and terrain park ettiquette. Whitetail will be offering terrain park lessons throughout the winter season.

Nighttime skiing will get brighter at Whitetail this winter, as a result of all 400-watt light fixtures being upgraded to 1000-watt fixtures. Base area and plaza lighting is also being upgraded.

Whitetail has also purchased a new Bombardier 350MP Slope Groomer. 25 new Ratnick snow guns are being added, and snowmaking lines throughout the base area are being replaced. Whitetail is renovating portions of its base lodge, and new snowboarding equipment is being added to the resort’s rental inventory.

“Each summer, it is our number one objective to improve our resort in such a manner as to enhance the guest experience and provide the greatest value to all who come to our facility,” said Don MacAskill, Whitetail Mountain Resort VP and General Manager.
