WEST DOVER, Vermont — There is an unfamiliar sound in the Mount Snow Valley, it’s the sound of silence. With Peak Resorts investing $9 million in state of the art fan guns, gone are the days of loud air-water equipment, in is the quiet hum of progress.

Mount Snow’s veteran team of snowmakers hit the slopes Tuesday night putting North America’s finest fleet of snow making machines to work. Firing up a total of 111 guns Mount Snow is continuing their early season push, having already opened with lift service on October 17th, the earliest in its history.

With an early season window of cold temperatures the decision was made to begin an aggressive campaign with the intention of opening with top to bottom lift service the second week of November. Mount Snow plans to open with two of its mountain faces spinning lifts, both the Main Face and Carinthia. Carinthia will open with a full terrain park on Nitro featuring boxes, rails and jumps.
