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.
Ski areas expect a strong season with operational changes and safety measures in place.
Submissions are welcome for the 2020 Brodsky Prize, established by a former editor of the Manchester Central High School newspaper, and his family, to encourage out-of-the-box efforts and innovation by a new generation of student journalists.
Waterville Valley Resort has a new New Hampshire College Pass for the 2020/21 Season. For just $289, The New Hampshire College Pass gives students unrestricted access to four resorts including Waterville Valley, Cannon, Cranmore, and Gunstock for a combined 258 trails, 944 skiable acres, 6,800 vertical, 17 parks, and night skiing at both Gunstock and Cranmore.
The future gondola, a long standing element of both the Town's and Resort's Master Plans, will whisk guests out of the Valley towards the South Ridge of Green Peak, where skiers/riders and sightseers alike can enjoy the mid-station services, including a new Base Lodge and learning area, as well as expanded Nordic facilities. From there, guests will have the option to continue their journey to the summit of Green Peak for dining, exploring, or the simple pleasure of taking in the 360 degree mountain views that surround this unique mountain community.
Sign up as an individual or team, raise or donate $100 ($150 if you need a ski pass for the day), and enjoy: “No Wait” Express Lift Line Privileges! Souvenir Ski-A-Thon Tee Shirt! All participants receive a commemorative Tee Shirt, but the prizes just build from there.
