Welcome to the 2015-2016 Ski Season
It is a busy time at Dartmouth Skiway, even as the summer heat bears down on us this week. We have some exciting changes to announce for the upcoming 2015-16 winter season and, yes winter will be here before we know it.
We have made the decision to freeze all prices for the upcoming season! You can still upgrade to the award winning Freedom Pass for only $50 again this season to get unlimited skiing/riding at six New England ski areas. This collaborative pass allows Skiway pass-holders to ski/ride all winter at Bolton Valley, VT, Black Mountain, NH; Granite Gorge, NH; McIntyre, NH; and Ski Ward, MA for just $50 than a standard Skiway season pass. This pass has no blackout dates and can be purchased on line or at the Skiway Guest Services desk.
We are planning a few changes early this winter as we focus on creating the optimal race and beginner area surfaces. As part of Dartmouth College, our primary mission is to provide an excellent training surface for the Alpine Ski Team(s), and well-groomed areas that support student activities. To make sure we succeed in that area, we will concentrate our early season efforts on opening the main training venues for the Alpine Teams (Thomas, Worden's & Chivers), as well as the beginner area first. After these areas are ready, we will expand our snowmaking operation to additional intermediate terrain.
To support our mission, we will lease compressors for snowmaking earlier to build a snow base at key locations, and hope for some early cold weather! Ongoing trail maintenance and lift maintenance continue to be a priority for our summer crews. And we continually work on ways to improve our products.
As always we will open as much terrain as rapidly as possible. Our goal is to provide the best possible snowsports experience in the Upper Valley. We currently anticipate opening on December 19th 2015.
Again we appreciate the feedback many of you have provided us from our online surveys and guest comments each year, and we encourage you to contact us if you have any questions or thoughts.
We look forward to seeing you on the slopes with us this winter. Season passes will go on sale August 15th 2015 at www.dartmouthskiway.com . Follow us on Facebook, Twitter & Tumblr for the latest on the Skiway
