Waterville Valley Green Peak Plans Changed
Waterville Valley Green Peak Plans Changed
If approved by the Forest Service, new terrain could debut in 2015-16.
Wednesday, December 10, 2014, NewEnglandSkiIndustry.com
A year and a half after obtaining approval from the White Mountain National Forest for the long awaited Green Peak expansion, Waterville Valley is requesting a change in scope which may allow construction to commence in early 2015.

The approved plans for Green Peak currently include eight trails serviced by a high speed quad. While Waterville Valley obtained approval from the Forest Service in June 2013 and conducted initial surveying later that year, the project was rumored to be stalled due to a lack of funding.

The proposed change is to substitute the high speed quad with the relocation of the World Cup Triple. According to the scoping documents, the World Cup Triple, a 1985 Stadeli rebuilt by Doppelmayr in 2000, only operates about 10 days per season. The lift would be removed (no replacement planned) in early 2015 and refurbished on site.

Two additional towers would be added to the lift, as well as a longer haul rope. Slated for a 2015-16 opening, the relocated triple would be 4,380 feet long by 1,011 feet vertical on Green Peak.

The 30 day comment period has begun and could be followed by a Forest Service decision by February 2015.
