Massanutten Resort, a premier all-season resort in the heart of the Shenandoah Valley, has resumed its skiing operations, following a brief two-week closure due to record-breaking warm temperatures. To mark the occasion, the resort is inviting Scout troops, as well as active and inactive military personnel, for a fun-filled weekend on the slopes. The resort’s snowmaking team has opened two additional trails for this weekend. Snow-tubing will remain closed for the remainder of the season.
“Our team has worked diligently to ensure we could reopen, even briefly, to welcome local troops for a fun-filled weekend and show our appreciation for our military community,” said Sarah Elson, director of business relations at Massanutten Resort. “There aren’t enough words to express the gratitude we feel for our servicemen and women, and we are incredibly grateful for the commitment they have made to defend our country. It is an honor to serve those who have served our country!”
