Virginia's [R232R, Massanutten] is greeting the new season with a new lift, discounted season passes, and early reservations on its popular Slope Sliders program for kids.  A Dopplemeyer CTEC quad has replaced a double chair installed in front of the lodge in 1972. The loading area is closer to the lodge making it easier for guests to access the lift. A new trail design makes it easier to access both the Geronimo and Southern Comfort trails.

The resort is offering 10 percent off its $425 adult and $350 student unlimited season pass rates until Nov. 30. The Value Pass allows for skiing and snowboarding Sunday - Friday (non-holiday) and night use of the slopes. It sells for $199. Value tickets also are good from opening day to Dec. 25 and from March 1, 2010 to closing day.
