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.
