Greek Peak Family,
First and foremost— I hope you and your family are safe and healthy.
COVID-19 is like nothing I’ve seen during my tenure in the ski industry. We were so excited to kick off the 2019-20 snowsports season early on November 15th only to have it come to a quick and unexpected close on day 112—March 16th.
I understand how difficult it was for you to see us close with most of our trails still open. It has been reconfirmed to me, with every passing day, that this was the right decision. No one will be more excited than me when I can start welcoming our amazing employees back to their Greek Peak/Hope Lake Lodge family when we receive the all-clear to resume operations.
I am very appreciative to the small team we were able to keep who have ensured that key daily operations continue including our new food concept Trax2Go takeout and delivery service—you may have seen the dancing delivery dinosaurs video in Greek Peak’s Facebook feed. The creative minds behind Trax2Go should also be credited for developing the Greek Peak Community Store at Hope Lake Lodge, fulfilling an unmet need in our immediate community by using our supply chain to make essential everyday goods available for purchase in Virgil. Thankfully, Greek Peak basic operations such as accounting, call center, season pass processing and maintenance continue to operate as well.
I know that this is a challenging time for many which is why we have decided to roll out a Family Payment Plan for families of three or more for the 2020-21 season pass beginning today; April 1st. This new payment program will allow you to take advantage of best pricing on next season’s Family Pass purchase while paying in installment, making it easier than ever for families to enjoy Greek Peak when we finally get through this. Rest assured, next winter season we will be back stronger and better than ever.
I genuinely look forward to welcoming each of you back to Greek Peak and Hope Lake Lodge when the time comes. Although the 2019-20 snowsports season has concluded, I hope to open Hope Lake Lodge and our summer adventure attractions by Memorial Day weekend. The final decision is up to our state and federal lawmakers, but please stay tuned for updates.
One thing is for certain: when we do receive approval to reopen, we will be ready to welcome you back to all of our Greek Peak summer adventures and amenities. Our mountain coaster rides, guided zipline tours, mountain biking, Cascades Waterpark, Waterfalls Spa, Trax Pub and Grill, Acorn Grill and Hope Lake Lodge will all be waiting for you.
We’ve missed you! Be safe and stay healthy.
