It's Going to be Another Beautiful Day! Lifts spin at 8:00am! We have received 14" of fresh powder since Wednesday, 26" of new snow in the last 7 days, and 58" in the month of February! We have record conditions and acreage with 30+ acres of new Green Peak Trails and tons of groomers and powder stashes for all skiing preferences, plus some serious snow drifts and refreshed glades from Friday's wind! We also have parks open for all ages and sizes. A new small Jurassic Progression Park is open on Lower Periphery. We also have our medium size, skate-style park on Stillness that has a new jump added to the 18+ features. Plus our big air Exhibition Park and the Exhibition Poma Lift will be open all weekend and next week! Our Park Crew has been continuously working to keep conditions in prime shape and mix up features for plenty of variety, plus we are working on building on Higher Ground for the upcoming Ski and Boarder Cross on Saturday! Two great FunRuns are open as well, including a beginner FunRun on Leroy's Loop and our signature FunRun on Rock Island. This Wicked Venture Zone begins with a series of 20 rollers, a mild jump, a large bank turn, then a series of 6 quicker banked turns, 350+ feet of moguls, three more large rollers, and a small jump line! Or check out our variety of different glades for plenty of untouched powder and fun features like ski through the sugar shack!

Conditions and Weather yesterday were absolutely phenomenal and some of the best we have seen in years. We saw clear blue skies, sunshine, and then some clouds and wind later in the day that subsided for a beautiful evening. We have 14" of new snow from Wednesday's storm and are planning to leave 3 trails ungroomed today. If we can leave some powder we definitely will, otherwise we will groom out trails so we can provide the best conditions possible! We will also leave some ungroomed terrain on 1/3 or 1/2 of some black and blue trails and plenty of powder can be found in our glades! Most of yesterday was so warm and sunny that our snow was softened and had a higher moisture content later in the day making it heavier and faster than when the light powder first fell, and we may see similar conditions today although temps will not get as warm which is great for our snow! Everything has dried out nicely overnight and we aren't seeing any major icing issues overnight and with grooming our surfaces are back to a loose granular. We will have crispy corduroy first thing this morning and silky smooth packed powder later in the day as radiant heat from mostly sunny skies softens surfaces while temps remain low. You can find great skiing on Old Tecumseh which skied beautifully all day yesterday, and beautiful sunshine on our Sunnyside trails! The freshest groom can be found on And Tyler Too! Temperatures will be cooler today, with 18-22 degrees at the summit and a high of 32 at mountain base. We should see clear, bluebird skies over Mt. Tecumseh today for beautiful views and skiing! We are seeing some high winds very early this morning but are not anticipating it to affect lifts today, however we will update if anything changes!

Eats and Happenings can be found at the Marketplace, the Schwendi Hutte, T-Bars, the Sunnyside Timberlodge, Buckets, and the Waffle Cabin all week! See our Full Event Calendar for everything going on this weekend and next week including Apres with specials and live music, plus movies for the kids every single day through the vacation week! Last night's Comedy Show featuring Bob Marley SOLD OUT! Make sure to grab your tickets for Friday's hilarious New Hampshire Comedian Juston McKinney before they are gone too! Have some laughs at the Waterville Valley Conference Center, just steps from town square, by buying online or by calling Therese at (603) 236-8311 ex. 3000. This month we have races, moguls, slaloms, and clinics, from alpine to nordic, on skis, bikes, and snowshoes. Enjoy music and comedy, and fantastic food, brews, and views, all surrounded by the beautiful White Mountains. February couldn't be a better time to take advantage of everything we have to offer!

Looking forward to another sunny day on the slopes!

Skied Sunday, started out very wet and sticky. In the afternoon, as the temps began to drop, started to freeze up which actually made it a lot better

They've got a lot of snow! Mashed potatoes in the sun, great snow in the shade. Got a little scratchy by end of the day.

Only sunny side lift open. Top not open due to winds. Pretty disappointing.
