Green Peak Construction Continues at Waterville Valley
Snowmaking and trail excavation work have resumed this spring.
While piles of snow still remain on Exhibition, Waterville Valley construction crews have already been working for weeks on this year's Green Peak projects.
Waterville's first large scale expansion since the late 1960s, Green Peak will eventually feature 10 trails of all abilities. Novice-intermediate trails 51, 52, and 53 debuted in January, while the Green Peak triple chairlift officially opened on February 11. Temporary snowmaking pipe was installed on Chandler's Way (Trail 51) to service the summit of the new peak.
The temporary pipe was removed earlier this spring and permanent 6" pipe is now being installed on Chandler's Way. Pipe is expected to be installed on other Green Peak trails as well.
Meanwhile, excavation of the new trails resumed this month and is currently focused on Governor's Run (Trail 57). Trails 51, 52, 53, and 58 were excavated prior to the snow flying at the beginning of the 2016-17 season.Source: "NewEnglandSkiIndustry.com"
