College students will be able to ski or ride on the cheap this winter at the Camelback Ski Area, thanks to a $229 Nights Only Pass. The pass will be valid from 4-10 p.m. seven days a week at the Pennsylvania Resort.
Camelback will also be making improvements to its Terrain Parks and Half Pipe, as a new participant in the Burton Progression Park Program. The Laurel Glade Park will be re-configured as a learning park with smaller snow features, rails, and boxes. Snow features and over one dozen new rails and boxes will be located in the Advanced Park on Rhododendron Glen. Camelback is widening Rhododendron Glen by 70 feet, and will be restricting access to the Advanced Park to riders who have passed a park safety and etiquette certification. Camelback is also making improvements to its half pipes, and will groom the pipes with a new Zaugg pipe groomer from Switzerland.
900 new Burton snowboards have been added to Camelback’s rental fleet, including Burton Learn-to-Ride boards and Burton Cruiser boards.
Camelback has also partnered with Vermont’s Jay Peak Resort. Jay Peak will be offering discounts to Camelback Season Passholders.
Increased snowmaking capacity rounds out Camelback’s $2 million capital investment for the 2006/2007 winter season.
