Bristol Mountain Extends Their Spring Snowsports Season Through Sunday, April 8th

Canandaigua, NY (March 29, 2018) It has been a very exciting season for Bristol Mountain. It started with Bristol Mountain being the first ski area in New York, out of 50, to open on November 11, 2017, with fall foliage as the backdrop for the Sunset chairlift. That milestone was followed by Morgan Schild and Jon Lillis being named to the US Olympic Team (Freestyle Moguls and Aerials) and placing first in their Olympic debut qualifying rounds. Other Bristol Mountain Super Six (US Ski & Snowboard Team) members also had great seasons including Dylan Walczyk (Freestyle Moguls), Harrison Smith (Freestyle Aerials) back from being off due to an early season concussion, and Patrick O'Flynn (Freestyle Aerials), in addition to Pepi Neubauer (Alpine Ski Racer), competing on the Master's circuit had many podiums to boast about. Recently, Ski Patroller, Scott Mundrick, was named to the National Ski Patrol Hall of Fame.

Due to amazing conditions Bristol Mountain decided to extend night season through to March 24th, an extra two weeks of night skiing. Easter Day was slated to be the last day of the 2017-18 season but Bristol's management team unanimously decided to extend the spring snowsports season through April 8th which will bring the total number of days on snow for guests this season to 124 days. The hours of operation from now through April 8th is from 9am-4pm.

"It's exciting to have a season with so many great milestones." exclaims, Drew Broderick, marketing director. "Easter being this Sunday and Spring Break for the local schools next week, we are pleased to have such great conditions that we are able to extend the season so our families can come out to ski and snowboard during the April break. With temperatures near 50 degrees on Saturday we should see a lot of our guests skiing in tee shirts which we refer to as Tee Skiing", Broderick explains.
