Mt. Shasta Ski Park Helps Local Economy

Posted: Dec 27, 2017 6:29 PM

Mt. Shasta, Calif -- Family and friends gathered at the Mt. Shasta Ski Park on Wednesday to enjoy the winter festivities.

Official say although they haven’t gotten much snow they been working all week making sure they had something for grand opening.
“The majority of the snow here is manmade, and we are making the most of it. And we have all the base facilities open to the public,” said ski park's social media manager Sarah Bryan. 
And guests say they're doing a good job. 
The park has tubing, snowboarding, skiing , lessons for beginners and for the first time a scenic chair ride.
The ride takes you up the mountain, and instead of dropping you off like the chair lift normally would, you can now head down and enjoy the view of nature, or stay at the top to dig in to some fun in the snow. 
The Modesitt cousins say they come to the park often, and enjoy the snow, skiing, and snowboarding. 
But this winter wonderland is more than just good news for the park, but also good news for businesses in the area.
"Normally ski park helps us a lot every year and we always have a winter starting snow park opening up around 12 to 15 of December but this year unfortunately we don’t have enough snow, “ said Mt. Shasta Inn and Suites manager DC Patel.
The manager adds his business depends on the park during the winter, and that’s the story for many businesses around.
The Mt. Shasta Chamber of Commerce says the ski park brings in $3,000,000 in payroll alone, and another $10-15 million to businesses like the inn, sporting goods stores and restaurants.
Making the ski park an essential part of the local economy.
The ski park will be having New Year’s Eve celebrations all week long you can find the details for that here https://www.skipark.com/
