Two brand new Prinoth BR 350 machines have been added to the fleet. Known as the “North American Groomer”, this machine offers greater efficiency, increased reliability, enhanced performance, and ease of operation.

New clearing and sculpting on Bear and Cruiser are part of a major commitment to provide consistent and quality skiing and riding right from opening of the the resort.
