6th Annual Cold Turkey Plunge

6th Annual Cold Turkey Plunge

Yes it is that time of year again. Time to prepare for the annual dip. On Saturday, November 24, Captain Tom Turkey will once again lead his Fearless Fowl Feathered Friends as they plunge into the frigid waters of Corcoran Pond in beautiful Waterville Valley to raise funds for the Waterville Valley Adaptive Sports Program.

All proceeds raised at the 6th annual Cold Turkey Plunge will be used to purchase specialized adaptive athletic equipment and provide ski and snowboard lessons and equipment for children and adults with cognitive and physical disabilities.

All plungers are asked to raise a minimum of $50 in donations. They will be rewarded with an official Plunge shirt, a gourmet cold turkey sandwich courtesy of Chef Sean Stout of the Coyote Grill, a Waterville Valley Adaptive Sports “Empowered Bracelet,” and a coupon for a free hour of tubing at the Waterville Valley Tubing Center this winter.

Additional premium incentives will be awarded for reaching fundraising benchmarks. Prizes will be presented to individuals and teams in a variety of categories including Best Costume. Costumes are optional, but encouraged.

This year you can be a VP. That’s a Virtual Plunger! Place a donation of $50 or more to team VP at firstgiving.com and send a goofy picture of yourself to info@watervilleadaptive.com. WVAS will photoshop you splashing and plunging into the icy waters of the pond.

Corcoran Pond beach will be rocking with the annual Polar Pool Party. WVAS will ‘sacrifice’ a Waterville Valley snowmaker to Techumshrina, the Snow Goddess of the pond, to ensure a great ski season.

Opening Day 2017/18

After months of hard work and almost $3 million invested already in upgrades and new improvements, we are committed first and foremost to providing the best quality for your money. That's why we will officially open for the 2017/18 Season on November 24th, 2017. With rain and mixed precipitation forecast for this weekend followed quickly by freezing temperatures, we are taking the time to build and maintain a resilient base. Mother Nature and our upgraded high-efficiency snowmaking system hammered trails from top to bottom earlier this week, from the White Peaks Quad to the base area. As soon as perfect weather returns early next week we will fire up our new Sufag fleet again and lay down the best quality snow possible to kick off a monumental season. Close out opening day with apres at our Welcome Back bash featuring appetizers, drinks, and plenty of info on everything you can expect to see this season from President and General Manager, Tim Smith. Then on Saturday, get into the spirit of the season in Town Square. Some brave plungers will take to the pond, Santa and his sled dogs are coming to town, we will flip the switch for our annual tree lighting, and as always, end the night with fireworks over the pond. This year the entirety of Waterville Valley Resort is Progressing to the Next Level so you won't want to miss our grand entrance!
