Erosion Control and Trail Grading Makes Progress on Green Peak.
Last week the Waterville Valley Resort team wrapped up grading and erosion control work on the new Green Peak trail, Governors Run, with the exception of a few small areas that require additional blasting (which will begin in the next few weeks).
The crew has now moved down to Bourbon Street and Lower Stillness to continue excavation, grading, and seeding trails. Seeding trails helps establish a root base and prevents erosion, which is especially important after the recent major rain event. After trails are seeded, hay is spread over the top, which creates a greenhouse effect and helps the grass seeds germinate. This also slows down water and acts as temporary erosion prevention until the root system develops.
Waterville Valley’s multi-talented snowmakers have been finishing welding pipe up on the hill and will be ready to start putting it into place soon.
Off the slopes, the resort is already seeing Phase II projects begin to drop, like the new ResortBoards, which are set to officially debut this weekend. Stay tuned…
