A high-speed quad and a double chair will serve 95 acres of terrain featuring 125 freestyle features, including rails, jumps, and halfpipes on Mount Snow's Carinthia mountain face.

The major makeover will offer a snowskate playground, hikable park, beginners' learning park, and a skate ramp near the base area.

The base lodge itself will be renovated and outfitted with lounge areas, an extended outdoor deck with ample seating, counter seating along the windows, free wireless Internet access, flat screen televisions, and outdoor fire pits.

A high-speed quad and a double chairlift will shuttle skiers and riders up the hill, where they can choose from a variety of approximately 125 freestyle features scattered around 12 full terrain parks.

A tree-skiing area, a superpipe with 18-foot walls, a mini-pipe with eight-foot walls, an all-natural park absent of manmade material, and a big-air site also will be featured.

The sweeping overhaul is the brainchild of Peak Resorts' President, Tim Boyd, and his son Jesse, Peak's Vice President of Operations and Freestyle Terrain.

"Freestyle skiers and riders are the future of the ski industry," said Jesse Boyd on a recent visit to Mount Snow.
