In 1991 we set out on an impossible mission for an eleven and a
thirteen year old..... to create our own ski hill out of a cow pasture
on the family farm. Today, a quarter of a century later, we look
back at our journeys, many of which took us to different ski resorts
and mountains throughout the northeast. We had the opportunity to
meet new people, learn new concepts, and of course perfect our slopeside
skills. Blessed with two loving and understanding parents we worked
hard to create a ski hill that combined the best of all that we
saw. Through lots of trial, error, success, failure and hardwork
we created Polar Peak Ski Bowl.
tagline is, "Home to Distinct Outdoor Adventure", this
best articulates our culture, bold yet positive, adventurous yet
fun. Whether we are out skiing in a blizzard some evening under
the lights, making snow when it is 5 below, or enjoying some runs
on a few patches in July, we celebrate the extremes. Having fun
is the core of what this place is about. You will discover this
theme throughout the site and hopefully it will become infectious.
of the most unique things about our operation is that we are not
a business, and we are not open to the general public. Occasionally
we invite a few of our closest friends and family members out to
enjoy the fruits of our labor. While we don't operate a ski facility,
we strongly encourage everyone to support your local ski area, and
to learn or continue to participate in alpine sports.
you for visiting the website and learning more about our endeavor!
We hope you learn a few things about the sport, the industry, and
recreation, but most importantly we hope you have fun and have a
laugh along the way. Here is to an amazing 26th season, of skiing
