“It seems like the country has taken notice,” said Mount Snow communications director Jamie Storrs. “We were on Good Morning America the other day. It seems like everybody has heard about this crazy storm system. We’ve had 40% of our annual snowfall in a seven-day window, that’s over 50 inches in the past week.”
“The members are just thrilled, “ said Hermitage Club director of public relations Meridith Dennes. “People were enjoying themselves and taking advantage of the historic March snowfall. Our members are really enjoying themselves, the experience has been awesome, and the skiing has been amazing.”
“To have one 2-foot storm in March would be great. To have five to six feet of snow is unheard of,” said Storrs. He added that the snow has been a boon to skier visits at Mount Snow.
“We’ve had some busy Saturdays and Sundays, for sure. But the real upstick is what we’ve seen midweek. Saturdays are always busy here. But you know the word is out when Friday and Sunday look like a Saturday, and Thursday looks like a busy Friday. To be fully packed with all the lifts running in the middle of the week is unheard of.”
Because of the snow, Mount Snow’s special $17 St. Patrick’s lift ticket special for Friday, March 16, is sold out. Storrs said there are still $29 lift tickets available online for Friday.
Storrs added that the snow has been good for business off-mountain, too. “It’s good for the valley, midweek the inns are busy. Our phones are ringing off the hook, They’re booking through Easter right now.
Storrs said Mount Snow will be open for skiing at least through the Minus Zero festival weekend of April 6 to 8. Dennes said that Haystack Mountain at the Hermitage Club will be open for skiing this weekend.
“Two weeks ago we were skiing in T-shirts,” said Storrs. “Now we’ve had 10 inches today, with another foot on the way. It’s been a miracle March.”
