The Vermont Ski Areas Association has issued a press release on summer activities at ski areas. The press release features summer revenue activities as well as some infrastructure improvements. I'm not sure if it is supposed to be an exhaustive list of infrastructure improvements. If it is, there doesn't appear to be anything surprising - and it appears that it will be a relatively quiet summer. One nice piece of news is that Magic seems to be committed to improving their snowmaking.

The press release is here: http://www.skivermont.com/about-us/press-room/press-release/id/639
