Peak Resorts Adds Jack Frost/Big Boulder
SAM Magazine--December 2, 2005--Peak Resorts, based out of St. Louis, Missouri, has entered into a long-term agreement to operate the Jack Frost and Big Boulder ski areas in Pennsylvania starting this season. The areas are owned by The Blue Ridge Real Estate Companies.
With the addition of the two ski areas, Peak Resorts will now operate nine winter resorts in the U.S. Dave Grenier, an executive VP at Peak, along with his wife Linda, will oversee the Pennsylvania operations.
In true Peak Resorts style, first on the list for improvements is a 3-year, $5 million upgrade to the snowmaking systems at both areas. The company plans to add fan technology (20 tower Polecats for starters) to the existing air-water systems. Next up in improvements will be snowgrooming, followed by upgrades on buildings, grounds and lifts as needed.
