What's New This Season at Swain Resort

Swain has teamed up with Ratnik Industries for a snowmaking expansion worth nearly $200,000. Ratnik has designed and manufactured snow guns according to our exact needs at specific locations on the mountain. A total of 60 guns: 50 tower-mounted (mostly 30' and several 15') and 10 sled-mounted (15'). The tower guns will be installed on the head-walls and the sled guns will be used to provide better coverage on wider slopes.

The slopeside development on the west side of the mountain features ski-in ski-out properties on an expanded trail system. There are 27 properties in the planned expansion as well as new slope side, multi-use trails that are integrated into the development properties. The slope an trail expansion is themed around Swain's vision of being a year-round, multi-use resort for downhill skiing, cross county skiing, mountain biking, and hiking right at Swain Resort and more importantly, one more step toward becoming the premier family resort in the region.
