I often think what my life would have become had a 11 year old Editor not been exposed to skiing through Mt Pleasant‘s after school ski program. Mt. P as it has been long known to locals, is located on rt86 just outside of Edinboro, Pennsylvania and I was lucky enough to only live 5 miles up the road from it’s 340 vertical foot access t-bar. On weekends it was not uncommon for my brothers and I to ski all day and into the night session on Saturdays and 9a-5p on Sundays.  On a recent trip back to the motherland I stopped by Mt. P just to see what was going on and the place is looking better than ever;

Attention to detail at the new Mt. P is through the roof! Check out the upcycling of the old rental skis into cool light fixtures. The boardwalk is also a great addition and eliminates muddy spring walks up and down the driveway.

Definitely the most radical change is the one season old Highlander chairlift! Huge upgrade compared to the old T-bar!(though it was always fun popping airs off the t-bar ruts)

Behind every home mountain are the people making it happen! Despite facing harder odds than farming, Doug and Laura Sinsebaugh are fully committed to running Mt P well into the future. It is also pretty cool to that when they hand out a business card it only has phone numbers not a email address where your email might never be opened. Hey look; on the computer is the PPPC!

A pair of the iconic Olin Mark 4’s(the had to have ski when I was coming up) adorn the entry into the rental shop.

This is a big upgrade; Family ski lockers! They are available on a seasonal/rental basis.

Still the same killer view from the loft but now you get WIFI with the price of a lift ticket!
