Blue Mountain Resort to Make Snow this Sunday – Tuesday
Palmerton, Pennsylvania (22 November 2015) – Blue Mountain Resort is expected to start blowing snow early next week, Sunday, November 22, through Tuesday, November 24. Temperatures are expected to settle into the low twenties at night, creating an ideal snowmaking environment at Blue Mountain Resort. Guns are projected to begin dusting trails on Blue Mountain as early as Sunday morning (temperatures permitting). This exciting event gets the Resort one step closer to opening for the 2015-2016 season!
As the region’s leader in snowmaking, Blue Mountain Resort has invested in snowmaking capacity, efficiency, and automation for the last 20 consecutive years. Over half of Blue Mountain’s acreage is now fully automated with the industry’s latest equipment and software along with their entire water pumping system. Last summer, Blue Mountain added six new snowmaking pumps increasing their output to an impressive 14,000 gallons/minute. Impressive water capacity coupled with 55,000 cfm of snowmaking air and the latest automation technology is sure to make this winter at Blue Mountain the best yet.
Blue Mountain has not yet set an opening date, but once the temperatures are consistently between 24-28 degrees, guns will be cranked at full capacity. Opening day will be announced on skibluemt.com, through an email newsletter, and on Blue Mountain’s social media channels to alert guests and Season Pass holders to gear up and hit the slopes!
Those that are just as excited as Blue Mountain to start making snow are encouraged to purchase their Season Pass online to save, go direct-to-slope and ski or ride all season long!
