    I am sure most of you got the email, but $4500 to rent mountain for a day if a group can get together the $$ before 10/15. Can we get 18 people to pony up at $250 a head? each person can bring 5 people? 2/27/19?

    Are you talking about Plattekill or is Magic copying them and doing mountain rental now?

    I'm not sure who started it but Magic has had this policy in place for several years. Pico is also available to rent on their off days as well.

    Many mountains that are closed or have limited mid week hours are available to rent. Some just advertise it better. So it's nothing new.

    Makes perfect financial sense for these small mountains to offer their place up for private parties on their closed days, assuming they can get the staff they need on short notice. The reason they close some midweek days was due to lack of customers, so guarantee them some customers and they'll be glad to open for ya. Imagine booking them and then getting a powder day.

    If it is a powder day The question is then will they open for others that day as is their policy on powder days?

    I think that is a no based on last winter. I believe a manchester business (RK miles?) scored a powder day. Although I am not positive about it if it qualified as an official powder day or not. not sure if they prohibited uphill travel or not.

    That is what happened last year IIRC, and yes RK Miles. And if I rented the mountain and lucked out with a powder day I wound not expect them to open to the public. The good thing is it is highly unlikely that a private rental results in a big enough crowd to ski off the entire mountain. So the day after would offer plenty of powder.

    I mean if I rent the place and pay that much cash it means good or bad weather wise. Just like I'm sure a group cannot cancel suddenly because of weather it wouldnt be fair for them to take away your upside. Also though, you create really great lasting memories for everyone in that group because of how good it would be.

    As a day tripper I guess you need to call ahead on powder days that have 6" or more to make sure it isn't rented out for the day. Is this the same as season passholders as well?
