ASM Plans to Open Saturday, December 22

12.19.12 10:41 AM

With a very positive snowmaking forecast projected from Thursday Night through early next week, Appalachian Ski Mtn. plans to take full advantage of cold temperatures and open as much terrain as possible for skiing & snowboarding on Saturday, December 22.

Temperatures are expected to fall into the low 20’s Thursday night, and should allow for round-the-clock snowmaking potentially through Sunday. Look for additional terrain to open as soon as possible; there is a chance that Appalachian could have a majority of slopes open by Sunday.

App Terrain Park plans to provide riders with some mellow, fun rail & box options which will be setup daily while we capitalize on the forecasted snowmaking window.

ATP & Recess will host the Rome Pre-Jib snowboard competition on Sunday, December 23. This is one of 10 Pre-Jib events hosted in the US & Canada, with huge prizes up for grabs and a free entry with valid lift ticket! Click HERE for more event information.

Ice Skating will continue on a regular schedule, with 3 session offered daily at Noon, 2:30, and 7pm.

Santa will be on the slopes Christmas Eve, December 24 from 1-4pm. Don’t miss your chance to see & talk to the Big Guy!

Join us this Holiday Season at ASM as we look forward to some great skiing & snowboarding!
