S6 ski area

Pure. Joy.

June 28, 2022

We’d like to share some news with our S6 family. 

The Suicide Six name will be retired this summer. Our resort team embraces the increasing awareness surrounding mental health and shares the growing concerns about the insensitive nature of the historical name. The feelings that the word “suicide” evokes can have a significant impact on many in our community.

The Suicide Six Ski Area has an enduring legacy spanning nearly nine decades, and it is vital that the name better represents and celebrates what makes it a beloved and vibrant part of this community. Though some may find the change difficult, we stand by our conviction that this evolution is warranted for an iconic treasure and, more importantly, necessary to continue its rich history of inclusion and accessibility. 

After much thought and consideration, research and community outreach, a new name has been developed and will be announced in the coming weeks.

This change is being made with great care and respect. We look forward to sharing it with you soon.
