While momentum began with a terrain expansion, the $7.5 million investment dubbed "Phase II" is a resort-wide improvement plan with most new upgrades occurring on the main peak, Mt. Tecumseh. $1.15 million alone has gone to the purchase of 516 new Sufag high-efficiency tower and fan guns through a partnership with the French MND Group. Guests may notice the most dramatic increase in snowmaking capacity on the expert Sunnyside trails, True Grit and Lower Bobby's. The birthplace of freestyle skiing, the historic runs received upgraded equipment plus the addition of tower guns to both sides of the trails in anticipation of returning this year's U.S. National Moguls Championships to the East Coast. Resort-wide upgrades will increase efficiency and reduce energy costs and improvement efforts will continue through next year.
