Story about early opening.  Closed for skiing, boarding and tubing December 7 & 8.

Lewisberry, PENN. - November 15, 2019  - Roundtop Mountain Resort today announced its plans to open this Saturday, November 16, for the start of its 2019/2020 winter season. After a strong start to snowmaking this week, Roundtop will open this Saturday at 8:00 a.m. for top-to-bottom skiing and riding, marking one of its earliest opening days on record. 

Early season conditions will exist and resorts may not open with terrain suitable for all abilities. For the most up-to-date information on snowmaking, trail conditions, opening day details, and deals, guests are encouraged to check the Roundtop Weather Report and follow along on Instagram at @Roundtop

“It’s always a thrill for both our guests and our staff when we can open this early in the season for skiing and riding,” said Matt Thomas, VP and General Manager at Roundtop Resort. “With the snowmaking upgrades we’ve made this offseason and the hard work our snowmakers put in during this last cold snap, guests can expect more trails to open and snowmaking to expand, as long as the temperatures hold.”

Planned Opening Day Trails: 

  • Minute Man

  • Lafayettes Leap

  • Fife and Drum

  • J-Bar Park with freestyle features

In preparation for opening day, Epic Passes are on sale now for a limited time only through November, 24, and now is the last chance for skiers and riders to secure the best multi-resort pass deal in the ski industry. New for the 2019-20 season, Vail Resorts launched the Epic Day Pass allowing guests to ski world-class resorts for up to 50 percent off of lift ticket window prices. The Epic Day Pass is perfect for those skiers and riders who may not need the unlimited skiing offered by traditional season passes. 

For guests looking to ski more days in a season, the Epic Pass and Epic Local Pass continue to offer the best value and variety for unlimited skiing and riding. The entire lineup of Epic Pass options is on sale now at epicpass.com. For the 2019-2020 season, Vail Resorts will also honor and continue to sell all Peak Resorts pass products, and Peak Resorts’ pass holders will have the option to upgrade to an Epic Pass, Epic Local Pass, or Epic Military Pass.

The transaction represents a 116% premium to Peak Resorts’ closing stock price on July 19, 2019. The transaction is expected to close in fall 2019 and is subject to certain conditions, including a vote of Peak Resorts shareholders and antitrust clearance. “For over 22 years, our team has worked tirelessly to create what is one of the country’s premier ski resort companies, with 17 properties across the Northeast, Mid-Atlantic and Midwest. We are now delighted to announce this agreement with Vail Resorts that creates substantial value for our shareholders and new opportunities for our guests,” said Timothy D. Boyd, President and Chief Executive Officer of Peak Resorts. “During my time in the industry, I’ve come to know and respect Vail Resorts and believe they will build on our accomplishments and further improve the experience that our loyal guests enjoy both on and off the mountain. “An important driver of our success is the Peak Pass, the leading season pass option for Northeast skiers and riders. With a growing number of customers taking advantage of unlimited access to resorts such as Mount Snow and Hunter Mountain, the Peak Pass has become a valuable asset. Our properties are also in excellent condition thanks to a number of recently completed capital projects, including upgrades to our snowmaking capabilities, terrain expansions and infrastructure improvements. Going forward under Vail Resorts’ leadership, we expect guests will see a continued focus on the customer experience that will further the appeal and growth of our resorts and the strong affinity of our guests. Furthermore, I believe our extremely capable team will become an integral part of the long-term Vail Resorts success as they represent a tremendous asset to our guests and to our resorts.” Rob Katz, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Vail Resorts, added, “We are incredibly excited to have the opportunity to add such a powerful network of ski areas to our company. Peak Resorts’ ski areas in the Northeast are a perfect complement to our existing resorts and together will provide a very compelling offering to our guests in New York and Boston. With this acquisition, we’re also able to make a much stronger connection to guests in critical cities in the Mid-Atlantic and Midwest, and build on the success we have already seen with our strategy in Chicago, Minneapolis and Detroit. Tim and his team have assembled a fantastic array of resorts and created a strong and loyal guest network. We look forward to welcoming Peak Resorts’ guests and team members to the Vail Resorts family.” The transaction was approved by the Boards of Directors of both companies.
