Add Sugarbush Resort To Ski Areas Where Verizon Wireless Network Grows Stronger This Season

Add Sugarbush Resort to the popular ski areas where Verizon Wireless has enhanced its network coverage in time for the 2011-12 winter season.

The good news for powder hounds pointing their ski tips downhill in the Green Mountain State of Vermont – we’ve increased our 3G network coverage in and around Sugarbush Resort, including the town of Warren. With a new cell tower in place, ski and snowboard enthusiasts can stay in touch with enhanced 3G network coverage around the main Lincoln Peak area and surrounding condominiums, the Sugarbush Golf Course and the German Flats area, as well as other parts of Warren.

Excitement about the enhanced 3G coverage spread quickly. Vermont Gov. Peter Shumlin called Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley from the news conference to announce the new cell site and invited his southern neighbor north for some New England downhill skiing. Read more.

Sugarbush is just one of the winter sports destinations where we’ve enhanced our network. This season we also enhanced our network in and around Lake Tahoe and Big Bear Calif., Telluride and Eldora Mountain Resort outside Boulder Colo., at western Pennsylvania ski areas, and in Michigan, including 4G LTE coverage at Cannonsburg Ski Area in Michigan.

So, whether unwrapping new ski gear or a new weather-resistant ruggedized smartphone this holiday season, customers can gear up and stay connected with the Verizon Wireless network.

Bring on winter!
