2020-2021 Season Recap at Stratton Mountain

A letter from Stratton Mountain’s President and COO, Bill Nupp:

To Our Stratton and Ikon Community,

The 20/21 winter season was a truly memorable one for Stratton. Mother Nature started the winter slowly with little snow and warm temperatures but blessed us in the heart of the season with long stretches of great snow, great weather, and awesome skiing and riding. Our hope and goal at the beginning of the season was to deliver a recognizable Stratton winter experience despite all the challenges ahead, which in turn could generate some sense of normalcy, and provide a fun and familiar refuge through the winter months.

Thanks to the respect, patience, and appreciation demonstrated by all to each other – community members and leaders, guests, team members, everyone – we realized the hopes and goals we started the season aspiring to, and enjoyed a great season.

To each and every one in our community, we say THANK YOU, and look forward to seeing you again soon.

Until then, we wish Happiness, Good Health, and Good Fortune to all.


Bill Nupp

President and COO of Stratton
