Step 1 Gaining Access

UPDATED BELOW- The first step in my current Flatlander on the Mountain Splitboard project is to find out what local ski mountains allow uphill travel and the research/scout out some non-resort back country areas to ride. This week I started by sending an email to 10 Ski Resorts, these included:

Blue Mountain PA, Elk Mountain PA, Jack Frost/Big Boulder PA, Liberty Mountain PA, Ski Round Top PA, Camelback PA, Big Bear PA, Windham Mountain NY, Hunter Mountain NY, and Plattekill Mountain NY.

I have now heard back from 8 of the original 10, but I plan to expand this list to a couple other local ones including: Bear Creek PA, Belleayre NY, and Spring Mountain PA.

Windham NY – Yes!

Blue Mountain PA- Yes!

Ski Round Top PA- HARD NO

Jack Frost Big Boulder- No ( They claim they are too small)

Elk Mountain PA- no

Liberty Mountain PA- No response but likely no given they are affiliated with SRT.

Camelback PA- yes

Big Bear PA- sometimes

Hunter Mountain NY, – yes 2 hours before opening.

Plattekill Mountain NY.- Nothing yet but pretty sure its allowed per a online discussion.

Stay tuned more to come.
