US Ski Area Re-Opens After Being (Mostly) Closed For 25 Years
A historic ski area in Pennsylvania has re-opened after 15 years. Laurel Mountain, established in 1939, had previously last operated for the 1999 - 2000 season having been closed through the 1990s.

The ski area in Westmoreland County has had a $6.5 million multi-year overhaul which has included the installation of a new quad chairlift.
91-year-old Henry Karbowski, who learned to ski at Laurel Mountain in the 1950s when he said lift tickets cost $2, was one of the first to ride the new lift.

In addition to the new chairlift, Laurel’s snowmaking system was upgraded, 52 new snowguns were installed and the water storage capacity nearly doubled to 26 million gallons.

The centre has a skiable vertical of around 230 metres. Slopes and trails, served by the quad chair and a handle tow for the beginners slope, were widened, re-graded or both and the centre’ Lodge completely overhauled. laurelmountainski.com
