News reports on Vermont ski resort improvements

Base area construction at Jay Peak Ski Resort in Vermont

We've hit a spell of cool, fall-like weather here in Vermont. Gets you in the mood for what's to come!

While I've been concentrating on passing along any info I get on on-mountain / skiing improvements at Vermont ski resorts, the Rutland Herald earlier this month spoke with the Vermont Ski Areas Association and some of the resort operators to <link http: www.rutlandherald.com article business features08 external-link-new-window about vermont ski resort>file this news report.

The Herald reports that capital spending at resorts is down this year, not an unlikely thing considering the way the economy has been. Plus, resort improvements seem to be cyclical anyways.

Base area construction at Jay Peak Ski ResortThis article reports that the two biggest outlays of cash for resort improvements this year are for base lodge and slopeside lodging construction at Jay Peak Resort and Stowe Mountain Resort.

Good to see money still flowing to maintain and/or improve our experiences at Vermont ski resorts — whether they are on or off the hill. In Jay Peak's case, there was some serious foreign investment involved in its huge construction project.
