Waterville Valley Resort will introduce night skiing for the 2020/21 Season during select weekends and holiday periods. Over the last few months, the Resort has been working closely with the US Forest Service and has been granted approval for lights on lower mountain terrain. Night skiing will operate off the Exhibition Poma surface lift with access to the Exhibition, Lower White Caps, and Pasture trails to start, with the potential to expand over to the Higher Ground park and World Cup. With Exhibition being the widest trail on the mountain, it will now feature a NASTAR race course during the day and will be a nice, groomed trail for all abilities at night.
With the increased demand to get outdoors this winter, night skiing will create more opportunities for people to get out and ski & ride. “We believe that this night skiing operation will cater to both our race and freestyle demographics,” said President/General Manager, Tim Smith. “It’s our hope that the local community and our visiting guests will come out and enjoy the snow under the lights.”
Night skiing is expected to begin Christmas Week in New Hampshire, weather permitting, and will operate on select Friday & Saturday nights and holiday periods. The hours on Friday will be 4pm-8pm and Saturday will be 4pm-9pm. The cost will be just $25 to start, but will change as more terrain is added. Night skiing will not be included with a day ticket purchase or season pass, however season passholders will receive a $5 discount. Advanced online ticket purchases will be required as capacity will be limited.
