Let it snow. Peek'n Peak to open for season

Peek’n Peak Resort Opens for 45th Winter Season

Findley Lake, N.Y., November 19, 2008 – Peek’n Peak Resort and Spa will open for its 45th winter season on Wednesday, November 26, at 9:30 a.m. with seven-ten slopes, three lifts and a 6-12” packed powder surface base.

Snowmaking began on Monday, November 17th at 6pm. The temperatures have been favorable and the resort will continue to make snow. As the long-term forecast calls for cold temperatures and additional snowfall, more trails will open as soon as possible.

The Peak gets an average snowfall of more than 200 inches a year. During the 2007-2008, the ski season lasted for a record 128 days and 201,000 people hit the slopes. The resort is open seven days a week, from 8:30 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. on weekends and holidays, and from 9:30 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. on weekdays. The Peek offers 27 slopes and trails, night skiing, a tubing area, the best learning facilities for all skill levels and 10 miles of cross country and snowshoe terrain, as well as an exquisite spa, fine dining and resort style lodging.

The resort is offering a $37 adult and $27 junior lift tickets through December 24, 2008. The resort will offer a free night stay at the Inn at the Peak with every 2 adult tickets purchased through December 23rd! The free night coupon can be redeemed anytime December 1-23, 2008. Peak Five Passes are also available until December 15. Buy four anytime lift tickets and receive the fifth free. These can be used anytime the resort is open and they are transferable.

New this year, Peek’n Peak is offering a discount card named the Peak Advantage Card. Cardholders save 40% every time on lift ticket and group lessons. An optional rental add on is available. “The Peak Advantage Card is an option suitable for guests who visit the area frequently, but not frequent enough for the season pass to be cost effective.” notes Steve Lempke, President of Peek’n Peak Resort and Spa. “Offering a savings of 40% anytime on lift tickets is something that we have never done before and hope that everyone will see that we are trying to make skiing and riding cost effective, given the current state of the economy.”
