Peek n' Peak Wraps Winter Season, Prepares for New Summer Park

Posted: Updated:

After a long winter with 159 inches of snow, Sunday marked the 122nd and last day of skiing at Peek n' Peak this season. That also means it's time to prepare for the resort's newest park - Adventure Park - set open Memorial Day Weekend. 

"I love snow, so long as I can ski in it. Now that the season's over, the snow can go away," said Chiara Young of Sherman, NY, a frequent patron at the Peak. 

Even those who love the snow sports seem to share that sentiment. 

"If the Peak's not open, snow, gone," said Grace Dennis, a local who skis often. 

"I'm ready for it (the snow) to stop.  I've been skiing all winter long, so I'm kind of ready for something new," said Yotam Roth, from Cleveland. 

But with four inches of fresh snow overnight, those on the slopes say they couldn't have asked for a better last day.

"Beautiful. Conditions for the last day are just unbelievable. It's warm and sunny - you couldn't ask for a better way to end the season," said Melissa Visosky, of Erie. 

While Peak's staff will be packing up equipment like snow mobiles and snow machines, many of the ski lifts will be fine tuned for a new purpose. 

They'll still carry people up the hill, but for zip lining instead of skiing. 

It's all part of Scott Enterprises' $1.2 million dollar investment called Adventure Park. The new park will add summer sport options, making the Peak more four-season. 

Adventure Park will include options like hiking, rope obstacles, zip lining, and Euro bungeeing, with a grand opening on Memorial Day Weekend - May 26th. 

The Peak's golf season opens May 23rd.
