Blue Mountain Resort Looks to Open Monday with Limited Trails
Palmerton, Pennsylvania (20 December 2015) – Mother Nature has been anything but cooperative this year, but Blue Mountain Resort is ready to get the season started!

At this time, Blue Mountain is offering limited trails and services on Monday from 10am – 9pm. Four trails and two lifts will be available – Easy Out, Vista, Midway, and Lower Main Street trails; Vista and Main Street lifts. Come Around Park will also be open with 3 features. This gives guests a brief but exciting opportunity to finally hit the slopes for the 2015-2016 season! Please note, with 6”-12” of groomed snow, conditions are thin and some trails will be narrower than usual in some spots. Guests are encouraged to check the Trail Map & Condition Report at Skibluemt.com for updates and the official trail count on Monday morning.
