Waterville Valley Resort To Open The New Green Peak Triple Chair Lift on Saturday, February 11th

Waterville Valley, NH, February 6, 2017 – On Saturday, February 11, 2017 at 10 a.m. Waterville Valley Resort will celebrate the culmination of the Resort’s major Green Peak Expansion with the opening ceremony and ribbon cutting of the Green Peak Triple Chair Lift. The new Green Peak is the Resort’s biggest expansion in over 30 years and the only ski resort expansion on the East Coast this year. When completed, it will add 10 new trails (45 new acres) for skiers and snowboarders of all levels.

New Hampshire Governor Chris Sununu, the former Governor John H. Sununu, and the President and General Manager of Waterville Valley Resort, Tim Smith, along with hundreds of Resort employees, skiers, tourism officials, and the local public will be there to celebrate the Green Peak opening ceremony. After the welcoming address and ribbon cutting, the new Green Peak Triple chair lift will bring guests to the top of the new ski terrain.

“We are very excited to open Green Peak during Waterville Valley Resort’s 50th Anniversary Season,” said President and General Manager Tim Smith. “The Green Peak Expansion is a tremendous accomplishment for everybody who was involved in the project: the U.S. Forest Service, the local enthusiasts, the management team, and all of the Waterville Valley Resort family. Getting this project achieved is a huge step forward for Waterville Valley Resort. The expansion will provide an exciting new peak experience for the guests.”

The Green Peak Expansion project was first announced in September of 2013, with construction getting the green light this past summer. Waterville Valley Resort partnered with all local New Hampshire contractors for this project: M.E. Johnston Construction of Thornton, NH and Wade Reed Logging of Rumney provided the site work, and SkyTrans Manufacturing of Contoocook, NH installed the Green Peak Triple chair lift. Waterville Valley Resort started the Green Peak Trail Name Contest in December and will continue accepting name suggestions and the stories behind them until February 10th, 2017.
