Tussey Mountain will Open its Slopes Today

The 6-8 inches of snow that fell on State College last night came as bad news to local drivers, but at least one business in town isn’t complaining. The Tussey Mountain ski resort, located just outside of State College in Boalsburg, announced that it would open today at 9 a.m. for the winter season.

The beginners slope will open today, with additional terrain to open the following day. The resort will be open daily through the new year.

“We’re thinking positive and moving forward and hoping to get additional terrain open as soon as possible,” business manager Sue Matalavage said to StateCollege.com.

The slopes did not open until New Years Eve last year, although Tussey’s website says that they have been making snow on top of what came naturally over the last day. The resort offers daily specials through February including “College Student Monday,” so don’t forget your winter gear when you come back from break!
