The 2019-20 season has been phenomenal. It’s day 84 and we couldn’t be prouder of our staff and more thankful for our loyal customers. It’s been an exciting season which started on November 16! This is the earliest start to the season in Toggenburg history. A week prior we gave the greenlight for the snowmaking team to take a very big risk and kick off snowmaking operations not knowing what the outcome would be. This confidence in our amazing team allowed us to be among the top 10 New York Ski areas to open first this season. Since then we’ve been able to response to every challenge Mother Nature has put in our way and our team has provided an unmatched on snow experience for our guests.
Today, February 20, Toggenburg has 21 trails (100%), a dedicated Alpine race trail, a terrain-based learning area and two terrain parks OPEN for our guests to create fun family memories. Molli Rainbow, Eric Waite and the rest of the Toggenburg team have done an amazing job this season providing wonderful on and off snow experiences.
We are also very proud and excited to celebrate that this season Christine and John Meier became the sole owners of Toggenburg Mountain and Greek Peak Mountain Resort!
The Meier family acquired their business partner’s 50 percent interest in both mountains because we are passionate about snow sports, and becoming the 100 percent equity owners will give a unifying vision.
“We have been skiing at Toggenburg and Greek Peak for more than 30 years and our two daughters and a son have been skiers most of their lives. Snow sports are near and dear to our hearts and we live the brand!” -John Meier

We believe in investing in the mountain with annual improvements as well as a summer maintenance schedule that keeps our on-hill team busy. Snowmaking and grooming have been a priority over the years, and we will continue by adding HKD Snowguns for the 2020-21 season. These above and below ground improvements are important because that’s what separates us from any other ski resort in the region.
This season alone is proof that we invest in better conditions and we invest in better experiences for our customers, and we invest in safety for our families. That’s what separates us from other mountains and drives home the value of our lift ticket and season pass.
We are a family business.
Every winter, we welcome generations of families to Toggenburg. Many students have experienced personal growth through our discounted after school snowsports programs and race programs. Studies show that students do better in school when participating in sports programs. Our snowsports kids not only get to use their pass when they come with their After-School program but they can continue to come that same day for the remainder of night season.
We’re here to stay.
We are committed to the future of Toggenburg and our customers.
“Having raised our children as skiers from the time they were toddlers, the snowsports lifestyle is a lifestyle for us – getting fresh air in the winter, doing outdoor activities year-round, unplugging and spending quality time together has been the best thing that we could do for our family and we’ve had a blast while doing it! We were customers long before we were owners, so we’re thrilled to have the opportunity to guide the future of Toggenburg and Greek Peak.”
Let’s Continue Making Memories Together…
“As lifelong skier, I always have the voice of the customer in my head. The best conversations happen on a chairlift with my family and our customers throughout the season. We’ve enjoyed great memories whether our kids are ski racing or free skiing at Toggenburg. We also enjoy the time we spend in the lodge visiting with all of the skiers and snowboarders. This keeps us in touch, in tune and connected with our guests – our extended family. That won’t change.”
“We will remain committed to Toggenburg and hope you will too by joining the 2020-21 season pass program or by renewing your current season pass. Let’s continue making great memories together in the years ahead.”
-John and Christine Meier
