Ski & Stay Development Open House May 1 from 9am-11:30am

West Mountain Plan

We cordially invite our local community & beyond to an in-person interactive walk-through of our proposed "The Woods at West Mountain" Ski and Stay Resort at West Mountain’s NW Base pictured above. *(Event details below)

We are very excited to be working with Luizzi Companies, a family-owned company, headquartered in Albany, NY and its design build partner BBL Construction Services toward development approval, as we move from concept to reality. 

We were fortunate to meet company President Peter Luizzi Jr. & start the process of turning a shared vision to fruition over the last six months. Luizzi Companies has a storied history of success across Civil Site/Asphalt Construction, Building Construction/Development and Property Management. Recently, delving heavily into multiple high-end, large scale development projects offering “lifestyle” & “experience” communities such as Starbuck Island located on the Hudson River, between the Village of Green Island and the City of Troy NY.

We want to acknowledge and say thank you for the tremendous investment our Partners have made and the hard work of our employees to save and rebuild West and make this opportunity possible.

This will be a beautiful and tastefully done year-round resort ensuring the future & economic viability of West Mountain. We have heard some concerns about skiing access price point increasing. In response, with the cost of all components of operation going up West stays viable and affordable by having alternative avenues of revenue such as lodging, onsite commercial businesses, property management, etc. to offset these costs other than by just selling season passes and lift tickets. This is precisely why average season pass prices have fallen 2- or 3-fold over the last decade ay large resorts as conglomerates have swallowed up multiple ski areas with ski and stay real estate developments. West Mountain needs to be a destination resort to separate us and make us unique and allow us to compete. Our location is second to none, our community and surrounding areas are beautiful, and everyone loves a true “ski and stay” experience. To get that, currently out of area and local and regional skiers head East at exits 18 & 20 to VT, we want them to turn WEST! Locals and Capital Region patrons will also love the true break from reality a luxury ski and stay resort, with all the amenities, offers.

My 2 cents: I have grown up on West Mountain since I was 3 years old, my 5 older siblings had the pleasure & great experience of working at West for the Brandts. I sincerely wanted to see my home mountain rebuilt and saved when I, my wife Sara and our four children moved back home. West saved us too after a very difficult period. I also wanted West to compete and stand up to any premier family resort while having a strong and long future to hand off to the next “steward of the mountain” someday, when that time comes. 1,600+ kids enjoy after school programs, 120 kids Race Team and countless families and individuals learn to ski & ride and enjoy skiing & riding here-to me this is the next logical step for West Mountain, ensuring its future and it will be a big economic boost and feature enhancement to our area, branding Queensbury a true Ski Town.

*The event will open Sunday, May 1st from 9am-11:30am for in person walk-throughs, assisted with maps and diagrams provided and physical location markers denoting the various components of the resort. There will be staff and the Montgomery's onsite to answer questions and give description and color. (There will be side-by-side transport available for elderly or those with difficulty walking).

At 11:30am there will be a presentation describing the development and the vision for it, West Mountain and the Community of Queensbury and surrounding areas.

Refreshments: coffee, donuts, bagels, juice, etc. will be provided. Please come join us at the future site of The Woods at West Mountain Ski and Stay Resort while enjoying the beautiful view of the Green Mountains of VT from the "West Athletic Club & Spa and Hotel West Overlook" or while taking in the ambience of the "Lower 40" acres of the old Hudson Farm property.
