Getting Ready For Opening Day!

The recent snowfall across the state caused quite the buzz, and we couldn't help but get a little excited ourselves! With favorable overnight temperatures, we've kept the snowguns running full tilt in preparation for our rapidly approaching opening day. *UPDATE* Due to the heavy rain fall, we will be opening a little later than originally planned. Check our website and on social media for updates.

Our snowmaking team has been hard at work setting up guns on Chutes and Village Green in order to make certain we've got a great selection of terrain for all skiers and riders when the time comes to hit the slopes.

We’re also excited to announce that our Bison has awoken from its summer hibernation and has returned to the mountain! Freshly serviced and newly re-tracked, it’s ready to keep things nicely manicured on the slopes.

If you're a season's pass holder we encourage you to come up to the mountain prior to opening day in order to pick up your pass. We don't want anything to keep you from carving some turns or catching some air. Have your photo taken early so you can hop directly on the lift come opening day! Guest Services is now open seven days a week from 10:00 AM – 3:00 PM for season’s pass pickup.

The Lower Snowmaking Pond Expansion is COMPLETE!

Back in late September, we brought you exciting news regarding the expansion of our lower snowmaking pond, increasing overall storage capacity by more than 20 million gallons. Construction on the pond finished earlier this week!

Mother Nature must not be able to contain her excitement for us either, as immediately following the completion she gifted us steady rainfall! We are also thankful to the state of New Hampshire DES who has granted us a one-time fill permit, allowing us to fill the pond with water from the Bog Pond. This should help Mother Nature out and give her some time to focus on the resource we need the most this season -- snow!
