Vernon, New Jersey- April Fool’s Day tends to bring out the ski industry’s most outlandish ideas. Some of the craziest jokes from this year include Arapahoe Basin building a mountaintop water park, J-Skis creating an electric-powered ski, and Alta adding porcupine patrollers. But there’s one change announced on April Fool’s Day that many people wish was real.

Yesterday, Mountain Creek Resort in New Jersey announced that Bluetooth speakers are banned so guests can enjoy being in nature. Ironically, many people supported this change, as Bluetooth speakers have become hated among outdoorsy people due to people taking them hiking and skiing. Those in favor of the change included Ski The East, the Out of Collective, and Wachusett Mountain.

Mountain Creek, who definitely knew what they were doing with this post, commented the following on their social media post:

“For those of you who didn’t read the entire caption. Happy April Fool’s Day. I guess we tapped into a hot button debate. 😂😂😂”

I agree with people who don’t want to hear someone else’s speakers while you’re skiing. Many go skiing to get out of the hustle and bustle of daily life, and Bluetooth speakers bring the opposite energy. I’m personally against Bluetooth Speakers on the slopes, EXCEPT if they’re playing Darude-Sandstorm on repeat. Honestly, it wouldn’t surprise me if some ski resorts banned these down the road. If you want to listen to music, put some headphones on.
