Waterville Valley, NH, February 18, 2017 – Waterville Valley Resort Snow’s Mountain, one of New Hampshire’s “lost” ski areas, will reopen on February 25, 2017 exclusively for Season Passholders at Waterville Valley Resort. Closed since 1996, this will be the second time since 2014/15 the chairlift has run in the winter months allowing for an additional 9 acres of terrain.
“I love that our team is dedicated to opening Snow’s Mountain for skiing and riding every year the snowfall allows for it. It’s dedication to our roots and keeping our rich history alive. It’s really exciting for us every year” – said Matt Hesser, Director of Marketing at Waterville Valley Resort.
At one time, Snow’s Mountain was the primary terrain at Waterville Valley Resort, until Mt. Tecumseh turned on its lifts in 1966. Snow’s Mountain saw less and less use until its trails became snowboard only in 1995 and then closed for good the following season. Since then, the chairlift has stayed in operation during the summer for access to its expansive mountain biking trail system which are also used for hiking. In 2014/15 Snow’s Mountain reopened and proved to be a very attractive destination for the Season Passholders.
The Opening Ceremony will take place by the Snow’s Mountain Chair Lift at 10 am. The Snow’s Mountain Chair Lift will run from 10am to 2pm exclusively for Season Passholders.
