Mohawk Mountain, tucked away in Cornwall, is officially open for the season. After being open for three weekends so far, the family-style ski and snowboard mountain is officially open with their full operation.
“Today is just gorgeous, it’s sunny, it’s blue skies, there’s snow on the trees it’s beautiful,” said Cassie Schoenknecht, director of operations.
Schoenknecht says there’s something refreshing in the air at Mohawk Mountain.
“It’s just such good feeling to see everyone excited to be back here skiing and smiling and happy.”
It’s the first ski and snowboard back for many.
“We’re excited to be getting back out there,” says a father with his daughter visiting from New York City.
Five lifts and 12 trails are open Saturday. The mountain expects to open more with additional snowfall.
And as more people come by for the day, the mountain is hoping to be the place to create long lasting memories this winter season.
“People who come here and learn how to ski and then bring their kids back and then bring their grandkids back, and those are the stories we hear every single day,” says Schoenknecht.
