HANCOCK, Massachusetts — The 2007 Holiday week at Jiminy brought 30,610 skiers and riders to Jiminy Peak over the 8 day period compared to 21,086 during the 10 day period of 2006/2007. The average skier visits per day were 3,826. Overall for 2007/2008, the resort is 21% ahead of the record year of 2001/2002 with 53,793 skier visits as of January 1st compared to 44,450.

The turbine’s contributions to the resort have been great during the current snowmaking season. The turbine has contributed 40% of the energy needed to make snow thus far this season, a tremendous savings to the resort allowing us to build one of the deepest bases the resort has ever had at this point in the season. Snowmaking has put 73 million gallons of water onto the mountain with 22% more efficiency than in previous years regardless of Zephyr.

Jiminy Peak is the largest ski and snowboard resort in Southern New England and the only mountain resort in North America to generate its own energy using alternative wind power. For more information visit jiminypeak.com.
