 Swain ski area Management Says:
We once again rolled out the bulldozer and cut a new trail! ''MAVERICK'' is an intermediate run that is a quarter mile long and averages 180 feet wide. The West Woods trail expansion has grown Swain Resort's trail system by over 12% in skiable acres with more to come!
In Bina Robinson's book about the founding of Swain Resort (With Our Own Four Hands, available at there was mention of
    ''Last Will'' originally being named ''Last Will and Testament.'' With last year's trail expansion opening the possibility for Snowriders to bypass the steep part of Last Will and continue further down, we have taken the opportunity
to bring back ''Testament'' as a blue square that can be accessed from either the ''Last Will'' headwall or from what is now ''The Pass'' and ''Fool's Gold'' in keeping with our West Woods theme. In addition to ''Maverick'' the new cut-through between Maverick and Twister will be a blue square called ''Bandit's Pass''.
We have opened up some fantastic glade skiing & riding above 80-acres and between Dozey Doe and Ben Blakely. The Swain
Snowsport Instructors have spent many hours clearning the underbrush so that ''The Glade'' can be officially opened this year. Be sure to check it out when the snow flies!
The Magic Carpet has found a new home on the west side of Lower Robinson where we carved out and regraded a new learning zone called ''Magic Mountain''. No longer do you have to worry about rope tows or loading and unloading from the chairlift at Swain Resort's Magic Mountain(tm). Just slide up, hop on, and ride to make your First Turns, Your Best Turns!
