Celebrating 50 Years of Firsts
50 years ago, 135 acres were cleared on the slopes of Mount Tecumseh, accomplishing the most extensive construction, in the world, of a major ski area completed within a single year. In conjunction with this 50th anniversary, Waterville Valley Resort is excited to announce the Green Peak Expansion, the first in over 30 years. So, here we are, again in an optimistic stage of expansion, one that will propel us forward into the next half-century.
50th Anniversary Event Series
60's: The Early Years
We've come a long way since our days of leather Cubco boots and wooden Strato Rossi's, but that doesn't mean we can't take a day to remember the early years. Throw on a retro sweater and come celebrate with us on December 31st. Stay tuned for more details.
70's: Hot Doggin' Freestyle
Waterville Valley Resort is the birthplace of Freestyle skiing. Freestyle has revolutionized the sport of skiing, paving the way for the new generation of skiing rippers that grace our Waterville parks. That's a hefty legacy to live up to, one that we wish to honor properly with a nice dose of hot doggin' fun.
More details coming soon.
80's: World Cup Waterville Race
Over the course of Waterville’s history, ten World Cup races have been hosted on the slopes of Mount Tecumseh. Legend has it that Waterville Valley also held the first official NASTAR race back in 1968, the day after the trials. We're honoring the tradition on February 25th. More details to come.
90's: Boneyard Beginnings Snowboard
