Get ready for another incredible day carving up the face of Waterville Valley! The conditions are about as good as it gets right now, and if you can believe it, they’re only getting better! Thanks to the snowmakers, we’ve been able to open a bunch more trails over the last few days, bringing the count up to 24 open trails! For Sunday, December 21st, we’ll be opening 7 lifts at 8am. It’s also World Snowboard Day, so make sure to do your part and strap into that board! There is a new, really fun, terrain park on Lower Periphery, and the 6 feature hike park in Exhibition has been awesome. Temperatures will be in the 20’s, with mostly cloudy skies. Lift ticket prices will be $55 for Adults, $45 for Teens, and $35 for Juniors and Seniors. The Marketplace, Buckets, T-Bars, Schwendi Hutte, The Waffle Cat and Sunnyside will all be open for food and beverage service. The Nordic Center is open with 25km of groomed terrain. See you on the hill!
