The snow is here to stay and with that comes the opening of the Asessippi Ski Resort. The resort opened last weekend and staff is busy making more snow, and getting all the runs and features opened for the winter season.

“We are still trying to hire some more staff for this season,” said Asessippi Ski Resort Assistant Manager Shannon Johnston. “We are still kind of short staffed at the moment and need a few more full time liftees and people in rentals. This season our focus is to get as much terrain open and as many features as we can as early as possible. Last weekend, we were still snowmaking and opened up the Quad Chair, Bunny Hill as well as Robin’s Run with some features with the terrain park. Next our focus will shift to Triple and the Bear Chair. The Bear Chair has been a couple years since it was open and everyone is asking about it. Those are our main focuses right now and then will work on tubing. There are a couple of fun things we will have out there, such as moguls for those people who like to do freestyle,” said Johnston.

“We’re going to have the two terrain parks, as well as a big full slope style course and a ski and snowboard cross come in the beginning of the year. After COVID-19, we kind of back into full mode. The bar and food court is open and we have some new fantastic menu choices. All three stations will be running with an assortment of homemade soups, pizzas, pastas and an amazing Rueben on the menu. The Bear’s Den offers an array of espresso coffees, lattes, along with beer and wine.”

Asessippi Ski Resort has some big plans for New Year’s Day celebrations as well as some other events throughout the season.
