Royal Mountain 2016-17 Ski SeasonFor the tenth consecutive year Royal has upgraded its snowmaking capabilities. We have added two new tower mounted fan guns making for a total of 18 tower guns and 25 snow guns overall.A commitment of over $500,000 has been made over the last 5 years in snowmaking upgrades alone.This season for the first time Royal will have a water cooling system in our ponds for more efficient and greater snowmaking capabilities this season.Last year in one of the warmest seasons ever, Royal had 100% of its snowmaking trails (which is over 95% of our terrain) open by the first week in January and maintained it until late March. We will put that record up against any other ski area in the east. All predictions call for a normal if not great winter which means snowmaking will start by mid November meaning another early opening.Open House is Sunday November 6th 1-4pm. Discounted season passes, day passes and Trailblazer registration will be available.Discounted season passes are also at Alpin Haus Ski Shop until November 20th.Day passes are also available at Alpin Haus any time.
