LONDONDERRY, Vt. – Getting open before Christmas week for the 1st time in years, even despite closing on the purchase of Magic just last month, Magic is set to open on December 24!
The newly refurbished Black Line Tavern had its grand opening on Friday, December 16, at 5 p.m. with drinks, dinner and late-night food for all travelers. Saturday, Goofy Foot was live to help celebrate the beginning of winter together.
Red Chair was inspected successfully on Tuesday and they are just finishing up some minor items for the state of Vermont so she is ready to roll for opening day.
Magic did get some snow Monday, which really helped out their base, but they will be using the new, re-vamped snowmaking system to get themselves open before Christmas.
The dedicated and enthusiastic mountain operations have been working overtime getting both lifts and snowmaking ready for all of Magic’s fans. The Black Chair realistically will be added in probably 3 weeks. So while in the short term there may be longer lines at the Red Lift during the holidays than they would like, over the long term, and most of this season, Magic’s customers will have a reliable, state-certified 2nd summit chair.
They will be open from Thursday December 22 through Monday January 2. While Magic has typically not been open on Christmas Day, it falls right on the weekend, so they have decided to do a special half-day opening for their skiers and riders from 12:30 -4 p.m. so their employees can spend Christmas morning with their families. There will be a special ticket on Christmas Day.
Now is the time to start booking local reservations and lessons for the holiday break. Check out the information and affordable rates on their website. Your child can even try the program for free one day during the holiday break to see how they like it. Just give Magic a call or go see them in the office.
