Electric Utilites Surcharge

Why is there a electric utilities surcharge on lift tickets? 

Thank you for choosing to visit Jack Frost Big Boulder.

Due to circumstances beyond our control, our electricity provider has decided to drastically raise rates on the electricity we need to run our lifts and our critical snowmaking operations. Due to this, we have been forced to add an Electric Utilities Surcharge to all tickets sold during the 2018/2019 skiing and riding season. We are not happy with this and hope to work with our local utility providers to avoid incurring such abnormal increases in our electric rates in the future.

Have a great day!
