Coming off a record ski season, the new owners of Greek Peak are turning their attention to strengthening the ski area's appeal as a four season resort.

Greek announced the inaugural PeakFest, a two day music festival in July.

A stage will be constructed at the bottom of the beginner hill, facing the mountain, with the audience sitting on the hillside creating a natural amphitheater.

Headlining the event will be Rock and Roll Hall of Fame guitarist Dave Mason, a co-founder of the rock group Traffic. Filling out the bill, the Pure Prairie League, Firefall, Professor Louie and the Cromatix and the Todd Hobin Band.

Hobin joined Professor Louie and Miss Marie to provide some musical entertainment for today's news conference.

Marc Stemerman, who with John Meier bought the resort a year ago, says the mountain provides a beautiful venue for family-friendly summer fun.

"John and I love music. We're into the concert scene. We always wanted to have some live concert events because that's the way we were raised. We are just totally thrilled to be able to bring this to the customers at Greek Peak," said Stemerman.

PeakFest runs Friday and Saturday July 18th and 19th and will also include a craft fair, regional food and drinks and a 5K run.

Now that skiing has ended, other year-round activities have opened including Hope Lake Lodge with its public indoor water park and spa, and the Adventure Center with a mountain coaster, zip lines and ropes course.
