2009/10 changes at Whitetail
Sat 22 August 09
$1.8million is being spent over the summer in improvements. A new half pipe in the Jib Junction Terrain Park, located on the Angel Drop trail. A brand new beginner terrain park, located on the Snow Park trail replacing the former half pipe. New magic carpet lift and 24 new Areco fan snow guns to the mountain complete the spending
Top of the list is the cutting of a new half pipe in the Jib Junction Terrain Park, located on the Angel Drop trail. The addition of the new half pipe will complement the double chair lift that was added last summer.
Whitetail Resort will then continue in the tradition of investing in the most energy efficient snowmaking equipment by adding 24 brand new Areco fan guns to the mountain. A continued investment in quality snowmaking equipment will allow Whitetail to make plenty of snow when cold temperatures arrive this winter.
Also this summer, Whitetail Resort will be adding a brand new beginner terrain park. This terrain park will be located on the Snow Park trail where the former half pipe was located. This new terrain park will replace the previous beginner park – Park Place 101, which was located on the Stalker trail.
A new 400 foot adult beginner carpet lift is also on the list of improvements this summer. This new lift will be located on the Northern Lights trail and will serve as a lift to introduce first time skiers and riders to the sport.
The addition of a new half pipe, terrain park and carpet lift are not the only improvements Whitetail Resort will be undertaking this summer. Other smaller projects are also underway to help make this another excellent season at Whitetail Resort.
“At Whitetail Resort we continue to focus on the guest experience as we undertake our upgrades for the 2009-10 winter ski and snowboard season. In addition to other major improvements we are investing heavily in expanding our snowmaking infrastructure for the upcoming winter,” said Whitetail Resort President and General Manager, Don MacAskill.
