Highlights of 2014

By Courtney DiFiore

We began 2014 with a bang. Winter storm Hercules dropped 18 inches!

We partnered with Wild Honey Pie to bring you On The Mountain. It went so well that they came back and On The Mountain 2 is already in production.

We made the NY Times! ny-times-image

Then there was the winter Olympics that included 14 Stratton Olympians. That was really exciting for not only the resort but the community. Congrats to Alex Deibold for bringing home the Bronze in Men’s Snowboard Cross. olympics sc

The second Annual VT Open was bigger and better than the first with over $20,000 in prize money.

We raised even more money than last year for charity with the
24 Hour event in March.

Early spring we introduced the Passport pass allowing guests to spend time at our sister resorts.

We celebrated 50 years of golf at our 27-Hole Champion course.

We embraced our inner yogi at Wanderlust, a multi-day yoga festival that features world-renowned yoga instructors, live music, inspiring lectures, outdoor expeditions, organic food, wine, and art. And we’ll do it again this summer.

We got new toys! Brand new
gondola cabins made their way on the line, new HKD snowguns joined the fleet, glades were added and new shops and restaurants moved into the Village.

We raised awareness and donated money for ALS in completing the Ice Bucket Challenge.

We changed our food to include more local, fresh products!

Columbus Day was a HUGE success with the addition of the Black Dagger Parachute Team, more selection at the Brewfest and a 5k Fun Run.

Opening day for the 2014-15 season arrived with a storm on its coat tails that dropped 13 inches! Can we start every season like this?

We teamed up with Rossignol, giving fans a chance to win gear and a ski & stay package for two valued at over $5,000. Contests are the best aren’t they?
