First Blog Post!

It's official! Liberty Mountain Resort has entered into the world of blogging. Liberty is a happenin' place with lots of exciting things going on throughout the course of the year. This blog gives us one more way of communicating that excitement with our past, present and future guests. So welcome aboard!

Since some of you may still be in snow mode, let's recap the 2008-2009 winter season:

With 98 days total of open business for skiing and snowboarding, it was a great season. Opening day was on December 6th, 2008 and closing day was on March 15th, 2009. Looking back, it was a long, yet exciting season. There was over 3.6 million dollars put back into improvements for this past winter season. Before the season began, the newly renovated and expanded Apline Market, Boarderline Snowboard Rental Shop, Liberty Snow Sports Retail Shop, and Locker Room areas were revealed. We also had new snow guns and other improvements made to the snowmaking system which allowed us to produce the most snow this mountain has ever seen! We also packed the calendar with events including the Annual Ryan Rail Jam, 80's Weekend and the ever-popular Springfest & Pond Skimming. Needless to say, the season was nothing shy of exciting.

Here are some of our favorite pictures from this past season:

Snowmaking and fresh corduroy!

The Annual Ryan Rail Jam competition - new Ryan Feature built by our Terrain Park Crew.

80's Weekend excitement!

The Springfest 2009 theme was "Liberty Mountain Hits the Big Screen." Guest Services brought Hollywood to life all dressed and decorated as Happy Feet. Penguins doing the macarena - only at Liberty!

Today is the first day of May, so you may want to let go of the snow mode. It's time for sunny days, green grass and blue skies! It's time to get as excited as those guys dressed in crazy 80's gear (above) for the warm seasons ahead.

Thanks for visiting our new blog and for reading our first post. Make sure you check back next week as Liberty continues to blog. Happy May!


  1. Here is my idea for the 2009-2010 ski season.
    Put a sign at the bottom of the Alpine Quad lift saying...."You must be able to ski well enough to stop and turn QUICKLY before you ride this lift". Please use the chair to your left and practice this first! Your Safety and the safety of others depends on this. Thank you for your cooperation.
