Paula Tracy, WMUR’s Escape Outside Editor, has a featured story on WMUR about Waterville Valley Resort, “Major expansion may be in store for Waterville Valley Ski Area.”
Paula writes, “The White Mountain National Forest is expected to release a decision in April on a major expansion of Waterville Valley ski area.
“It would be the first such expansion of the resort’s terrain in 25 years.
“Waterville Valley’s Green Peak Expansion Project would increase beginner and intermediate terrain and glade skiing lower down the mountain along the driver’s left of the access road and mean a new detachable quad chair connecting in the area near the Sunnyside Triple.
“It would occur entirely on lands designated in the 750,000-acre forest’s essential master plan, or its current “Forest Plan” for use as an alpine ski area, according to the Scoping Report prepared by the Forest Service’s Eastern Region Winter Sports Team.
“It’s expected implementation date is June 2013.”
