September 11, 2019 – What’s New Wednesday at the Peaks: 3 additional first floor guest rooms at the slope-side Mackenzie Lodge. The rooms are currently under construction but will be ready for the upcoming ski season. All three rooms will have king beds with pull out sofa sleepers in them so you can enjoy ski-in/ski-out lodging without any stairs!
September 4, 2019 – Our “What’s New Wednesday” series is back! We are busy getting ready for the upcoming ski season and we will highlight some of the off season improvements over the next few months on Wednesdays.
The crew is currently installing a new 12” snowmaking pipeline coming out of the pumphouse. The new 12” pipe replaces 1000 feet of old 8” pipe. The larger pipe will result in more water flow, better pressure, and less friction loss, which translates into more snow, made faster & more efficiently.
Gotta keep feeding those snow guns!
Caberfae Peaks (Archive) – WHAT’S NEW for 2018 – 2019
The crew at Caberfae Peaks were busy this summer working on many improvements to the ski slopes and resort amenities, including: improved skier drop off area, the addition of 4 new SMI Super PoleCat snowmaking guns, an expanded parking lot, a brand new Green Mountain Flying Carpet Lift, and more… Here’s are with some of the new things that you’ll see on your visit to Caberfae Peaks this season.
Improved skier drop off area with new pavement, pavement markings and concrete sidewalks. The area also includes the creation of a courtyard/green space for our outdoor ceremony sites, relocation of the putting green, and areas to gather.
Snowmaking improvements continue this off season with the addition of 4 new SMI Super PoleCat snowmaking guns, along with the addition of 9 new SMI PoleCat snowmaking towers. Bring on the cold temps!
More seasonal lockers for rent in our Ski & Snowboard Rental Facility. Are you tired of schlepping your gear to and from the resort? Get a locker for the season, starting at $149.
New Bull Wheel Bearings. The crew spent part of the summer replacing the bearings on the top bull wheels. The key to keeping the lifts spinning during winter operations is great off-season maintenance.
Improved snowmaking infrastructure on South Peak. The crew has installed over 1000′ feet of larger diameter snowmaking pipe to allow for better flow, less friction loss, and a higher PSI. What does that all mean? More snow, faster.
Brand new cross country ski rental equipment from Rossignol. For those Nordic skiing enthusiasts, you can now rent XC equipment at the Peaks and access 15 km of groomed trails right from our resort.
4 New SMI Super Pole Cat snowmaking towers and 9 new SMI Polecat snowmaking towers.
Expanded parking lot, including 200 additional parking spaces, significantly improved drainage, and a complete resurfacing with recycled asphalt millings. Enjoy plenty of parking and a greatly improved parking surface this winter!
Renovated learn-to-ski beginner area, including the installation of the brand new Green Mountain Flying Carpet Lift! Renovations also include a gradual, more gentle grade to the slope, additional snowmaking pipe, electrical installations, and 3 new fixed snowmaking towers.
