WEST DOVER  – Fresh off a dumping of over a foot of
powder Mount Snow will be closing its featured park Nitro on Friday the
11th for a rebuild. With consistent snowmaking for eight days straight
and the recent natural snowfall, Mount Snow’s elite park groomers will
go into action Thursday night and all day Friday to build the high
quality park its guests have grown accustomed to.

Several publications voted Carinthia as the east coasts number one park
last season, including Transworld, SKI and SKIING magazines. The
decision to turn Carinthia and its 100 acres of terrain into New
England’s only all park mountain face came when Mount Snow was purchased
by Peak Resorts. Carinthia has twelve parks, two pipes, a new twelve
foot cliff drop, a lighted learning park and is host to the only east
coast stop of the Winter Dew Tour, The Toyota Championships. Peak
Resorts has consistently shown its dedication to freestyle skiing and
riding at each of the eleven resorts they own.

By closing Nitro for a rebuild on Friday Mount Snow is sticking to their
overall philosophy of the highest quality product for its customers.
While other mountains opened with advanced terrain only or by
downloading its guests, Mount Snow chose to wait until it had top to
bottom terrain for skiers and riders of all ability levels. This is the
same for its park rebuild, with constant snowmaking from its state of
the art fan guns and 18 inches of natural snow thus far, there is enough
snow to work with and build an early season dream park for east coast

“It’s pretty simple, the less sleep I get the better our parks get for
everyone else. And right now I’m pretty tired” said Ken Gaitor, Mount
Snow’s Terrain Park Manager. Gaitor and crew have been working
tirelessly to sculpt the terrain on Nitro all week in order to prep it
for Friday’s build and ensure Carinthia opens on Saturday with roughly
fifteen features, including several jumps.
