WHAT'S NEW

The biggest improvement for 49 Degrees this summer was the expansion of their existing terrain park: "The terrain park expansion will include 10 new features — three of them are large, new pipe boxes — and the addition of a 36-foot-long rail," says Alexis Hartmann, the mountain's marketing director. "Additional on-mountain improvements include expanded brush cutting. Over the last seven years, we have added 500 acres of terrain, and this summer we have been brush cutting in those areas." The rental department has also added a new fleet of rental skis geared for big mountain and all-terrain riding. "These skis will be better for taking people all over the mountain," says Hartmann.

This summer, 49 Degrees North also started the planning process of a new 5,000-square-foot remote mountain lodge. A couple of locations are being considered: either the base of Chair No. 5 or at the junction of Silver Ridge and Blast face. The anticipated start would be in the summer of 2015 with the utilities construction, with final construction during the summers of 2016 and 2017. "This winter, we will continue with the ongoing planning on this lodge, which will include full food and beverage services," Hartmann says.
