Mount Peter, New York’s family mountain, today announced its scheduled opening dates for the 2019-2020 season – its 84th season as a family-friendly winter recreation destination in the Hudson Valley. Thanks to cool temperatures and the mountains advanced snow making capabilities, all skiing and snowboarding activities will kick off on Opening Weekend – Saturday and Sunday, December 7 and 8, from 9:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m. on both days.
“We’re all set to get the lifts spinning and welcome everyone to the mountain for another great year of family fun,” said Amy Sampson-Cutler, Executive Manager of Mount Peter. “Winter is here, and our crew is lending Mother Nature a hand with a little additional snowmaking – the slopes are looking and feeling great, and we can’t wait for the fun to begin!”
Mount Peter will be celebrating Opening Weekend with $45 special on all lift tickets. The mountain’s rental facility will be open for all ski and snowboard rental needs. Pete’s Closet, the mountain’s retail shop, will also be open, offering additional items you may need for a day on the slopes, along with souvenirs, sundries and more. Pete’s Café and Pete’s Pub will both be open in the Base Lodge, serving food and beverages for all ages. Stop in to warm up with some hot chocolate or an adult beverage. It’s also a great spot to relax and take in the mountain views from inside.
Mount Peter’s popular FREE beginner lesson program on weekends and holidays is a perfect way to get started on a new and active hobby. Mount Peter also offers group rates and midweek deals. Please note that tubing activities will not be opening on December 7 and 8, but Mount Peter anticipates the tubing run to be operating soon.
