WARWICK, N.Y. (Dec. 16, 2022) – Mount Peter, New York’s family mountain, opens for the 2022-2023 season on Saturday, Dec. 17, with an expanded and redesigned Snow Basin Learning Center to provide an even more enjoyable experience for guests learning to ski or ride.
“Welcome back to another year of family fun and excitement!” said Executive Manager Amy Sampson-Cutler. “Our improved learning center means that our guests who are sharpening their skills at skiing and riding can spend more time on the snow and less time in line. We always strive to improve guests’ experience at Mount Peter; this latest enhancement will make a huge difference.”
The redesign adds a third carpet lift – conveyor belts that carry skiers and riders to the top of the beginner hill – and increases the size of the learning area by 40%. The improvement was completed in time for the start of Mount Peter’s 87th season.
The enhanced learning center is the latest phase in Mount Peter’s ongoing commitment to provide a more enjoyable day for visitors. Last year, the mountain added a 5,000-square-foot rental shop that more than doubled the size of the previous rental space. Software installed allows guests to plan a trip in advance and purchase tickets at www.mtpeter.com.
Winter outdoor enthusiasts of all levels are welcome. Mount Peter’s famous FREE beginner lessons are offered on weekends and holidays to introduce newcomers to the sport. Mount Peter also offers private and family lessons, including mid-week learn-to-ski and snowboard packages.
Guests are encouraged to check out Mount Peter’s online snow report. You can also call the Mount Peter Snow Phone at (845) 986-4992 to hear the latest trail openings and conditions.
Just an hour drive from the George Washington Bridge, Mount Peter is located at 51 Old Mount Peter Road in Warwick, N.Y. For more information, visit mtpeter.com.
